SPGTDOU S&P International Dividend Opportunities Index

The Index selects 100 stocks from all the stocks in the S&P Global ex-U.S. Broad Market Index using the following process. Eligible stocks are screened on: 1) Profitability. Stocks must be profitable, as measured by positive earnings-per-share (EPS) before extraordinary items, over the latest 12-month period as of the rebalancing reference date. 2) Dividend Growth. Stocks must have stable or increasing three-year dividend growth. For existing index constituents, the dividend should maintain positive or stable growth. A small decline in dividend growth is allowed as long as the decline is less than 5% over the three-year period. 3) Dividend Coverage Ratio. The ratio of a stock’s Funds From Operations Per Share (FFO) to its Dividend-Per-Share (DPS) must be greater than 100%. 4) Dividend Yield. Dividend yield must be greater than the median yield in the remaining eligible universe consisting of stocks that passed all other Investability and Stability Criteria. This is screened after all other Stability Criteria for these indices are applied. The index then selects from those stocks 100 stocks with the highest annual Risk-Adjusted Yield (RAY), which is dividend yield divided by volatility of dividend yield over the prior 36-month period.
