Dividends By The Numbers In July 2017

Standard and Poor's dividend data for July 2017 had a mix of good and bad news. For the good news, for the third month in a row, the number of U.S. firms announcing dividend cuts in July 2017 fell below the levels that would appear to be consistent with some degree of economic contraction within the U.S. economy.
The bad news is that the number of firms announcing dividend cuts is still elevated at levels that are consistent with recessionary conditions being present in the U.S. economy. We can confirm that most of the current distress is concentrated within the oil and gas production sector of the U.S. economy, where a decline in oil prices since the beginning of the year that has only somewhat rebounded off a bottom in recent weeks is taking a toll on smaller producers and also companies that specialize in shipping petroleum products.
Looking at the bigger picture, the number of U.S. firms announcing dividend increases in July 2017 is up from a seasonal low last month, but is only even with the same month last year.
Let's roll through July 2017's dividend data:

There were 25 special or extra dividend payments announced in July 2017, which is down by 1 from the previous month and up by 1 from the same month last year. 161... Read more
