    Some investors believe that, in exchange for such downside protection, dividend growers are left far behind when the market rebounds.

    In the eight major upturns since 1995, the S&P/TSX composite averaged a gain of 56 per cent. The financial dividend growers did better, however, rising an average of 66.5 per cent, while the two other dividend growth groups lagged, with non-financials gaining 41.2 per cent and high yield 31.3 per cent.
