One sector that I've been looking to increase my stake in is financials. I currently own some of the "too big to fail" banks that have treated me quite nicely, but a little further diversification in the sector would be welcomed. Asset management seems ripe for the picking for profitable companies and T. Rowe Price Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:TROW) hasn't disappointed. TROW currently has a 29-year dividend growth streak, marking it as a dividend champion. The following tables/graphs are from my personal stock analysis spreadsheet. Data for the stock analysis was acquired through T. Rowe Price Group's investor relations page, Morningstar.com, and Yahoo!Finance.
Historic Growth Rates:
Historically, T. Rowe Price has provided excellent returns. According to longrundata.com shares of TROW have given investors a 324% total return over the last 10 years, good for 12.47% annually. Looking at the historical growth rates for per share dividends, earnings, revenue and free cash flow paints an equally bright picture.
