S&P Global Ratings kept South Africa's foreign- and local-currency credit ratings in "junk" territory with a stable outlook late on Friday, saying the new government was expected to focus on reforms to revive the economy.

The answer is a firm "no." Companies can qualify for the Dividend Kings provided they have 50 years plus of quarterly dividend increases each year, or the Dividend Aristocrats should they increase the quarterly dividends paid to shareholders for at least 25 years. Should a company fail to boost its quarterly dividend one year, it's off the list, but in examining these year-over-year increases they don't need to be big ones to qualify and continue to earn a passing grade. The number of changes to the Dividend Kings list is rather few and far between compared to the Aristocrats, which can see some changes year to year.
