In fact, income return has always been positive, despite periods such as the 1930s and 2000s when the S&P 500 Indexreturns were negative.S&P 500 INDEX RETURNS BY DIVIDEND AND CAPITAL APPRECIATIONS&P 500 dividendsAverage annualized return (%)2013.612.61515.311.2103.055.66.00-5-10INSIGHT INTO OUTCOMESS&P 500 capital 1980s1990s2000sSource: Ned Davis Research as of 12/31/20. Data is updated annually.* Free cash flow is the amount of cash generated after capital expenditures, which can be used to reinvest in the business, reduce debt,acquire other businesses or pay and increase dividends. The Standard and Poor’s (S&P) 500 Index is an unmanaged index that tracks the performance of 500 widely held, large-capitalizationU.S. stocks.Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.Just because a companyhas paid dividends in thepast doesn’t mean it will beable to increase — or evenmaintain — the dividendin the future.Our approach to dividendinvesting focuses oncompanies that cangenerate consistent freecash flow* and may help todeliver consistent income.

1IDENTIFIES FREE CASH FLOWAS A SOURCE OF DIVIDENDSThe Columbia Dividend Income team analyzes a company’s free cash flow to findattractively valued securities and forecast a company’s potential dividend actions.The team believes cash flow analysis is a more reliable indicator of a company’strue profitability from business activities.Investor benefitConcentrating ona company’s free cashflow improves theinvestment team’s abilityto identify and forecasta company’s futurepotential dividend actions— whether the dividendwill be cut, maintainedor increased.SUSTAINABLE DIVIDEND GROWERS LEAD IN PERFORMANCEStocks of companies with growing free cash flow and rising dividends have historically provided solidreturns with lower volatility.Monthly data 01/31/72–12/31/2015,3607,6803,8401,920960( EARn Dividend growers and initiators Gain per year 10.4% 100 grows to 11,346Annualized standarddeviation 16.09%n S &P 500 Geometric Equal-WeightedTotal Return Index Gain per year 7.9% 100 grows to 3,764Annualized standarddeviation 17.75%n N on-dividend-paying stocksGain per year 4.6% 100 grows to 844Annualized standarddeviation 22.20%Source: Ned Davis Research for the period 01/31/72–12/31/20. Data is updated annually.The Dividend growers and initiators and Non-dividend-paying stocks categories are subsets of U.S. stocks within the S&P 500 Index, as defined by Ned Davis Research. The S&P 500Geometric Equal Weight Index (S&P 500 EWI): The index is the equal-weight version of the widely regarded S&P 500. It has the same constituents as the capitalization weighted S&P500 Index, but each company in the S&P 500 EWI is allocated a fixed weight. Geometric average: Also called the time-weighted rate of return, it is a measure of the compounded rate ofgrowth of the initial market value during the evaluation period, assuming that all cash distributions are reinvested in the portfolio. Standard deviation (R squared): A statistical measureof volatility. It indicates the “risk” associated with a return series. Standard deviation also measures a fund’s performance correlated to a standard index. By definition, the market betaand R squared are 1.00. A beta above 1 is more volatile than the overall market, while a beta below 1 is less volatile.Past performance does not guarantee future results. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
