Roberto Rivero

European dividend aristocrats are European dividend stocks which have a strong track record of consistently distributing a portion of earnings to shareholders. These stocks are compiled in the S&P Euro High Yield Dividend Aristocrats Index.

In this article, we will examine this index and provide a European dividend aristocrats list for 2024!

The S&P Euro High Yield Dividend Aristocrats Index

The S&P Euro High Yield Dividend Aristocrats Index is composed of European dividend stocks which are included in the S&P Europe BMI and have their primary listing in a eurozone country.

To be included in the dividend aristocrats Europe index, besides other requirements, stocks must meet the following criteria:

  • A float-adjusted market capitalisation of at least $1 billion.
  • Have increased or maintained stable dividend payments for at least 10 consecutive years.
  • A maximum dividend yield of 10% at the index rebalancing date.
  • New constituents must not have a dividend per share which is higher than their Earnings per Share (EPS).
  • Existing constituents must have positive EPS.

Unlike dividend aristocrats in the US, which must raise annual dividends every year for at least 25 consecutive years, European dividend aristocrats only need to have raised or maintained dividends for 10 years to be included in the index.

This is higher than with the UK dividend aristocrats index, in which companies need to raise or maintain dividend payments for at least seven consecutive years.
