MRK Dividend Growth Rate

On this page we examine the MRK dividend growth over time, by tabulating the total dividend ex-dates that fall into each calendar year, and then comparing the year over year totals through time. Each of the MRK dividend growth tables by year are listed below, and overall, the 1996 to 2021 simple average MRK dividend growth rate = 10.78%, with the worst MRK dividend growth rate over that time being -65.46% and the best MRK dividend growth rate being 206.67%, as detailed below. Note: because the method used is to tally all ex-dates within each calendar year, our calculations will also include any "special" dividends that may fall into that year; investors should note that this will produce a different result than if only comparing "regular" dividend growth rate during those periods.
