†† Required years would drop to 20 if needed in order to have at least 40 companies or to meet index sector diversification rules. Additional companies are added in order of decreasing yield until requirements are met. Special dividend payments are not taken into consideration. There is no guarantee that dividends will be paid. Companies may reduce or eliminate dividends at any time, and those that do will be dropped from the index at reconstitution each January.
