3/5 Year Dividend Growth Rate:
The 3/5-Year Regression Growth Rate is the compound annual growth rate of the data item. This figure is derived by the least squares method, using six data points--a base year plus 3/5 subsequent annual data points. Fiscal year-end figures are used for the first 3/5 data points, with the calculation brought up to date each interim period by time-weighting the first and last points. The 3/5 yr growth rate is the average annual dividend growth.

Total Return 12mth/3yr/5yr:
The total returns adds the cash dividends paid during the term (12mth, 3yr or 5yr) to the period’s close price (last close price at the end of the period). Then we calculate a standard change in price using the new period end’s close price and the beginning period’s close price. For example, if calculating a 12mth total return and the price 12 months ago was $20, the company paid $2 in cash dividends during this past year, and last Friday's close was $30. Add the $2 to $30, giving $32 as the new period end's close price. Next, we would calculate a change in value from the base close price - $20 - and our new value - $32. This gives a 12mth total return of 60% in this example.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dividend Payout Ratio:
The current payout is the LTM dividend per share divided by LTM EPS, expressed as a percentage. The percentage indicates the percent of EPS that was paid out as a dividend.

Dividend Ex-Date:
The major exchanges require 4 business days prior to the Record Date for recording ownership changes. The day that begins this 4-day period is the Ex-Date. Investors who purchase the stock prior to the Ex-Date are eligible for the latest dividend; investors who purchase the stock on or after the Ex-Date are not entitled to the dividend. Empirical evidence has shown that this is also the date that the market reflects the dividend policy in the stock price.
