The first number is the total 12 months growth in full-year dividends per share. (i.e. (Final DPS + Interim DPS) / (Last Year Final DPS + Last Year Interim DPS)).
The second number is the last declared DPS over the DPS declared 12 months ago. It could be (Final DPS / Last Year Final DPS) OR (Interim DPS / Last Year Interim DPS)
I also show the announcement date and whether the growth has beaten Long Term South African Inflation (6%). Companies such as BTI should be forgiven for not beating SA inflation as they report in Pounds.
This table will be expanded to show a longer time period and include other information such as forward yields and dividend cover. I also plan to expand to include companies from the USA, UK and Switzerland. Eventually, I plan to have a section on the blog for each company.
