Dividends and Stock Splits

You can look up stock splits and dividends in our databases. I recommend Standard and Poor's and Valueline (which only has dividends).

Below is the screen from Standard and Poor's. After you enter the stock, look at the left side of the screen.

Valueline has information on dividends. Their screen is a little busy, but dividend information appears in two places on the stock record. Here's the view from the lower left hand side of the record.

Older stock dividends can be found in print for the NYSE and ASE.

There are digitized versions of decades of Mergent Manuals as well. These entries contain dividend records.

Company History

The Alkek Library has purchased online access to multidecade runs of Mergent Manuals. This includes Industrial, Unlisted, Public Utility, International, Transportation, Over the Counter and Bank and Finance.

Mergent Industrial manuals cover most of the 20th century through today and list a corporation's financials, stock splits and dividends. Also included is a corporation's subsidiaries, acquistions and a brief corporate history.
