Under the ownership of NASDAQ OMX, the Dividend Achievers Indexes will continue to highlight the commitment of companies that continually increase shareholder growth, while adding the transparency, innovation and rules-based methodologies that NASDAQ OMX's indexes are known for.

Dividend and Income indexes have become increasingly important to investors in our current economy. As capital gains taxes increase, many investors will look to balance out those taxes by gaining income directly from their investments, through dividends, buybacks and other instruments.
