(1)The individual components of the index are weighted by their total market capitalization. Market capitalization is determined by multiplying each company’s market price by their total outstanding shares. Companies are ranked in descending order based on their market cap in dollars.
(2)Financial companies, other than real estate investment trusts (REITs) and companies with a market capitalization smaller than $3 billion USD, are excluded from the index universe. In addition, companies with negative free cash flow (FCF) are excluded based on FactSet analyst consensus estimates for average projected FCF and earnings over the next two years.

(3)The 3-year dividend growth is a weighted average of each company’s 3-year dividends per share growth rate. The growth rate is determined by measuring the change between each company’s most recent trailing 12 month dividends per share versus their trailing 12 month dividend per share 3 years ago.
