NOTE: Bloomberg analysts use seven factors in determining each
dividend forecast:
1) Company guidance; 2) Dividend Health Score; 3) Industry analysis;
4) Historical trend analysis; 5) Market analyst consensus estimates;
6) Options market implied dividends; 7) Historical regression
analysis of fundamentals compared to dividends.

The dividend Health Score is on a scale of -100 to 100. A score
between -100 and -50 indicates a potential inability to maintain
the current dividend level, whereas 50 to 100 indicates a potential
ability to raise its current dividend rate. A score between -50 to
50 indicates that fundamental data is inconclusive on the direction
 of the dividend.
