A comprehensive view of forecasts and historical dividends.

How it Works

The best dividend projections in the industry.

ORATS provides a daily FTP download service with all expected ex-div dates and forecasted dividend amounts for the next 2.67 years for all stocks with US exchange listed options. Here’s how we do it:

Historical Dividends

We offer 14 years of historical forecasts and actual dividends and incorporate dividend trend models to project future dividend streams. (You can download this data for a one-time cost - see pricing).

Seasonal Effects

The projected dividend dates and amounts also take into account seasonal irregularities observed in the past. Our dividend consultant analyzes this data and adjusts our calculations to account for any abnormalities.

Implied Dividends

Using our proprietary IV indicators, we compute “implied dividends” – a calculated estimate of how much a company will pay as a dividend along the entire option expiration calendar.

Intraday Updates

We’ve partnered with top corporate actions provider Wall Street Horizon, whose algorithms are continuously scanning the news wires and providing ORATS with updated data and fundamental analysis.

Our Approach

We take the complexity out of dividend forecasting by combining historical patterns, implied dividends, and streaming news to make simple, accurate projections.

Stock Div Forecasts

Furthermore, the forecasts are split-adjusted and are converted to USD in the case when the dividend is expected in a foreign currency.
