The Dividend Report - January 2022

By Charles Payne CEO & Principal Analyst

Dividends per share grew last year, but the pace of growth slowed to 3.62%, lifting the total to $60.39.   During the year, buybacks became an even greater tool to return profits to shareholders. Those buybacks, however, continue to come under more scrutiny even on Wall Street.

Shrinking the pool of shares does make existing shares more valuable, but in a world starving for yield, shareholders want higher dividend payouts. Meanwhile, some in Washington, D.C., are looking to tax buybacks. It’s not a move I agree with, and it probably will not mean a shift to higher dividends anyway.  Nevertheless, for the twelfth year in a row, annual dividends increased for the S&P 500.
