Dividend Stock Ratings

  • What is a DARS™ Rating?
    DARS™ (Dividend Advantage Rating System) is Dividend.com's proprietary rating system we use to evaluate dividend stocks. Each stock we cover is given a DARS™ Rating of one to five stars, based upon five distinct criteria.

    Learn more about DARS™ here.
  • Why don't you rate certain stocks?
    Because of the structure of our ratings system, we currently only cover traditional dividend-paying equities that trade on U.S.-based stock exchanges. Please note that we do not cover:
    • Non-dividend stocks,
    • Over-the-counter (OTC) stocks (pink sheets),
    • ETFs, closed-end funds, and other non-traditional equities,
    • Any stocks that do not provide regular, reliable dividend data in the form of press releases.
    If you feel we've neglected to cover a dividend stock that doesn't fall into the above categories, please contact us and let us know.
