S&P Global Inc. (SPGI) provides independent ratings, benchmarks, analytics, and data to the capital and commodity markets worldwide. It operates through three segments: Ratings, Market and Commodities Intelligence, and S&P Dow Jones Indices. This dividend aristocrat has increased its dividend annually for the last 46 years. The last dividend increase occurred in January 2019, when S&P Global raised its quarterly dividend by 14% to 57 cents/share
Investing in Standard & Poor's ( the company) has been a better investment than Standard & Poor's 500 (the index) over the past quarter of a century ( when the SPY ETF started trading).

 

S&P Global has managed to grow dividends at an annualized rate of 8.60%/year over the past decade.

 

The growth in dividends was supported by earnings growth as well. S&P Global has managed to almost double its earnings per share from $2.94 in 2007 to $7.73 in 2018. The growth didn’t occur linearly of course – for the first six years S&P Global earned less than it did in 2007 as it was feeling the aftershocks of the financial crisis, and was in restructuring mode. The company is expecting to earn between $9.06/share in 2019.
