What Canadian sectors and industries have dividend paying and dividend growth stocks, and what are these specific stocks? 

I’ll be answering this question by first looking at the Canadian market as a whole and then drilling down deeper into the 11 sectors, the 69 industries, and 158 sub-industries, and then finally listing off all of the Canadian dividend-paying and dividend growth stocks and sorting them by their dividend streak length (Number of years they’ve increased their dividend in a row).

The Canadian Market

Canada is known for two sectors: financials (The “Big 5” banks) and the energy sector, which together make up more than 50% of the market by market capitalization. This makes building a diversified portfolio of Canadian dividend paying stocks difficult, if not near impossible because the Canadian stock market is not balanced.

With the market so tilted to two sectors, your diversification options are limited. The other problem is the number of dividend stocks is also limited.

I used the TMX Money Screener in August 2018 to find all Canadian listed stocks with a market capitalization of $100 million or more. Once I removed the preferred share listings, the duplicate company listings from dual-class share structures, and a few other housekeeping adjustments I was left with …

690 Canadian stocks with a market cap of $100 million or more.

Remove all the stocks that do not pay a dividend and you are left with …

348 Canadian dividend-paying stocks.

Remove all the stocks that can’t loosely be described as dividend growth stocks and you are left with …

161 Canadian dividend growth stocks.

Remove all the stocks that haven’t increased their dividend for 5 or more years in a row and you are left with …

101 Canadian dividend growth stocks with a 5-year dividend streak or higher.

Remove all the stocks that haven’t increased their dividend for 10 or more years in a row and you are left with …

37 Canadian dividend growth stocks with a 10-year dividend streak or higher.

As you can see, if you are looking for high-quality dividend growth stocks, the options are limited in Canada. In comparison, the US has 860 stocks with a 5-year dividend streak or higher and a market cap of $100 million or more, and it drops to 326 stocks for a 10-year streak or higher (Source: July 31, 2018, US Dividend Champions).

The 11 Sectors

Let’s see how these four categories of Canadian dividend stocks are split among the 11 sectors.

No big surprises here, but you’ll notice that there were no consumer discretionary or healthcare dividend growth stocks with a 10-year dividend streak or higher. Even at the sector level, we are starting to see our options drop off for higher quality dividend growth stocks and we haven’t even gotten down to the industry level.

Digging Deeper: Sectors to Sub-Industries

To get a better sense of the Canadian dividend coverage of sectors and industries, take a look below. As you can see its hierarchy begins with 11 sectors which can be further delineated to 24 industry groups, 69 industries, and 158 sub-industries.

FYI – I used the September 2018 version of Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) for the sector and industry counts.

When we get down to the industry level, the limitations of Canadian dividend growth stocks become a bit clearer. For a dividend growth investor looking to invest in dividend growth stocks with a 10-year dividend streak or higher they only have exposure to 22 of the 69 industries.

How many industries should you have stocks in?

To benefit from diversification, you probably want around 30 stocks, ideally in different industries. For Canadian dividend growth investors, this isn’t possible, which is why many supplement their portfolio with other international companies from industries that have poor coverage in Canada.

“The volatility-reduction effect of diversifying a portfolio has been studied by academics. Evans and Archer found that about 90% of the maximum benefit was achieved using a portfolio of twelve to eighteen stocks. That study was undertaken in 1968, when there were far fewer issues. In 1987 Meir Statman published work that indicated that a well-diversified portfolio must contain at least thirty stocks. To some extent the number of stocks you hold will depend on your comfort level and your ability to both find and follow suitable holdings. But remember, if you hold five good-quality utility stocks, all five are likely to move in the same direction at the same time. In terms of the benefits of diversification, your goal should be to include different kinds of companies in different industries.”

Sector by Sector Analysis: From Sector to Sub-Industries to Specific Dividend Stocks

For each of the eleven sectors I’ve included:

  • a graph showing the number of dividend paying and dividend growth stocks in each industry,
  • a “Sector Table” showing a breakdown of industry groups, industries, and sub-industries and where each dividend stock fits into each category, and
  • a list of all the dividend stocks in that sector sorted by the length of their dividend streak (Number of years in a row the dividend has been increased) and then by market cap (Largest first).

Sector Navigation:

Each sector is reviewed in alphabetical order so if you want to jump around here is the order …

  1. Communication Services
  2. Consumer Discretionary
  3. Consumer Staples
  4. Energy
  5. Financials
  6. Health Care
  7. Industrials
  8. Information Technology
  9. Materials
  10. Real Estate
  11. Utilities

How to Read the Sector Table:

The sector table breaks down each sector from the sector all the way down to the sub-industry.

The sectors, industry groups, and industries all have coding below them (Example highlighted in red on the left).

In the highlighted red example it would mean that there are 22 dividend paying stocks (“DP”), 18 dividend growth stocks (“DG”), 9 dividend growth stocks with a dividend streak of 5 or more years (“DG5”), and 5 dividend growth stocks with a dividend streak of 10 or more years (“DG10”).

At the Sub-Industry level, the specific stock tickers are listed (Example highlighted in yellow). Most of the stocks are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, but some are on the TSX Venture Exchange. TSX Venture Exchange stock tickers will have “CVE:” before the ticker. For example, Sylogist Ltd would be shown as “CVE:SYZ”.

Remember that only stocks with a market capitalization of $100 million or more are included.

OK, let’s dive in with the first sector: Communication Services …

Summary

Out the 690 Canadian stocks with a market cap of $100 million or more, 348 pay a dividend, 161 can loosely be described as dividend growth stocks, 101 have 5-year dividend streaks or higher, and 37 have 10-year dividend streaks or higher.

To get most of the benefits of diversification you want around 30 stocks, ideally in different industries. Out of the 69 GICS industries, Canada has dividend-paying stocks in 53, but it drops to just 22 when dividend growth stocks with a 10-year dividend streak or higher are selected. This makes it difficult to build a diversified portfolio with only Canadian stocks.

Not only does Canada have a limited number of quality dividend stocks it is highly concentrated in two sectors (Financials and Energy). Hopefully, by using this article as a starting point, you should have a better understanding of where to find quality dividend growth stocks in Canada and where you should look internationally to fill the gaps.

Disclosure: I own shares of Bank of Nova Scotia (TSE:BNS)Canadian Utilities (TSE:CU)Canadian Western Bank (TSE:CWB)Emera Inc. (TSE:EMA)Enbridge Inc. (TSE:ENB)Ensign Energy Services (TSE:ESI), National Bank of Canada (TSE:NA)Rogers Communications (TSE:RCI.B), and Suncor Energy (TSE:SU). You can see my portfolio here.

  1. This is the most comprehensive and at the same time clearest presentation of this data i have ever seen. Congratulations on the massive effort required to put this together. It will be of great use to me and many others, I am sure.

  2. Brilliant. This structure of the information has created a new paradigm for me. I have tracked my sector diversification for many years but this is so much more good info that I can use to improve my portfolio!
    I think I can look up the yield myself.
    Thank you.

  3. I second all previous notes of thanks and appreciation for the results of your extraordinary effort to benefit investors in dividend stocks.

  4. Awesome. This is essentially what my own research has shown. Unfortunately, Picking all the D10’s to me isn’t a sufficient option. I need a blend of some of the best D10’s as well as a few great dividend paying stocks that haven’t met the ten year mark (yet?). GREAT article !!

    1. Yeah I agree. A good example would be the Big 5 Canadian banks which are quality stocks, but don’t have 10 years streaks because they kept their dividend steady during the global financial crisis.

  5. Excellent, everything in one place! Thank you for the effort that you have put into this information, it is a great resource!

  6. There are Dividend Payers then there are Dividend Growth Payers and the two are distinct. It’s clear that one could easily compile a diversified portfolio of quality DG payers with as few as 10 to 25 holdings. Buy at reasonable prices, re-invest the dividends, add to your holdings, sit back and watch your Income and Capital grow over time.

  7. Thank you for this fabulous summary! I appreciate your generous sharing of understanding the Canadian market.

  8. What is difference between “Thrifts & Mortgage Finance” and “Mortgage REITs” ? I always thought that MICs (Mortgage Investment Corporations) such as MKP.TO and TF.TO were mortgage reits since they are the mortgage originator for real-estate projects?

    Here is a definition below:

    Mortgage REITs (mREITS) provide financing for income-producing real estate by purchasing or originating mortgages and mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and earning income from the interest on these investments.

    Maybe it’s a gray area… any feedback on this would be great !

    Thanks for this outstanding work.
