On this page we examine the RTL 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 RTL dividend growth tables
by year are listed below, and overall, the 2019 to 2021 simple average RTL dividend growth rate = -7.00%,
with the worst RTL dividend growth rate over that time being -27.35% and the best RTL dividend growth rate being 6.36%, 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.
