The below spreadsheet shows ASX dividends paid over the last five years. The second tab allows you to search for companies with consecutive dividend increases or decreases.

 

You can also look for companies that may be turning around having come through a rough patch, and which are now paying or increasing dividends again. The spreadsheet can also be useful for finding growth companies that may have paid their first dividend.

 

Companies pay dividends from profits. Share prices usually follow increases in sales, earnings, and dividends. For investors, cash received from dividends increases returns and supplies money to re-invest in undervalued growing stocks.
