This is a question more related to Excel than SMF, but since there are gurus here I will ask anyway.

I have the following spreadsheet with the last 8 dividends. How can I find the most recent dividend increase?

Ticker    Past1div Past2div Past3div Past4div Past5div Past6div Past7div Past8div   
d           0.7000    0.6480    0.6480    0.6480    0.6480    0.6000    0.6000    0.6000   
mcd      0.8900    0.8900    0.8500    0.8500    0.8500    0.8500    0.8100    0.8100

For D, (0.7000 - 0.6480) / 0.6480 = 8.02%
for MCD, (0.8900 - 0.8500) / 0.8500 = 4.71%

Regards,

If you dividends are in the range E6:L6, array-enter this formula to find
the earliest column with an increase:

=MIN(IF(E6:K6>F6:L6,COLUMN(E6:K6),999))

Then compute the increase with this, referring to that value:

=IF(M6=999,NA(),INDEX(6:6,M6)/INDEX(6:6,M6+1)-1)

Jose. Here are a couple of ways to calculate the most recent change (positive or negative) within your string of 8 values. You may want to try both as each may be helpful for what you are doing.

1. calculates change for each column:
A B C D E F G H I

MCD

0.89

0.89

0.85

0.85

0.85

0.85

0.81

0.81




4.71%


4.94%


The formula to place in column B under the first dividend in this e.g.: =if(B1<>C1,(B1-C1)/C1,"")

It would then be copied to columns C - H. (The MCD data for this formula happened to be in row 1 of my spreadsheet.)

2. calculates latest change only in columns B - H

MCD
0.89
0.89
0.85
0.85
0.85
0.85
0.81
0.81

4.71%

The formula for the result in column A under MCD in this e.g.: =+IF(B4<>C4,(B4-C4)/C4,IF(C4<>D4,(C4-D4)/D4,IF(D4<>E4,(D4-E4)/E4,IF(E4<>F4,(E4-F4)/F4,IF(F4<>G4,(F4-G4)/G4,IF(G4<>H4,(G4-H4)/H4,IF(H4<>I4,(H4-I4)/I4,"")))))))

As you can see it is a conditional logic statement of repeated column comparison starting with 1st two columns and advancing to next two. Once if finds an increase or decrease between columns it stops populating allowing the first result to show. (The MCD data for this formula happened to be in row 4 of my spreadsheet.)

Both formulas can be changed to show only increases by removing the "<" in each of the comparisons.

Hope this helps. Jim

Randy types faster than I do and his response is over my paygrade. :) Glad to see it though. Get to learn something new. Thanks. Jim

I had been using the smfGetGuruFocusItem(Ticker,53,"Q",0) function to retrieve quarterly data, but it has recently been returning "Error". Did the website change and cause the function to no longer work?

Thanks,
Daniel

You probably just need to grab the latest version of the add-in.

GuruFocus dropped the number of quarters from 9 to 5, so I had to update
the add-in code to account for that.

The change was made on 2016-04-09.

I also had to make another change on 2016-04-19, as they changed the annual
display as well.
