10 Dividend Growth Stocks For February 2015

Includes: ALB • ARLP • BBL • BNS • CNP • GMLP • HP • JNJ • MSFT • PM • TAL • TGH • TUP • TU 

I maintain a watch list of dividend growth stocks organized by GICS sectors. The list contains all the stocks in my DivGro portfolio, as well as a subset of David Fish's CCC stocks. Currently, there are 323 stocks in the watch list.

Every month, I use a proprietary ranking system to rank up to 50 stocks in my watch list. An earlier article in this series explains how I select the stocks to rank. This month's rankings are based on data from the latest CCC list (1/30/15).

During the ranking process, I assign a star-rating to each stock (out of a maximum of 7 stars). This month, no stocks earned 7 stars and only two stocks earned 6 stars.

This article at Seeking Alpha presents my top 10 ranked dividend growth stocks for February. As a bonus, I reveal the GICS sector winners.

  1. Divgro,
    Very nice list for February. I like BNS, MSFT, and BBL the most from your top 10 list. A couple of names I haven't heard of so I might look into those at some point today.

    1. I like those too! I'm going to look into BNS soon 'cause I've seen other dividend growth investors liking it. As I pointed out in the article, I'm already doubled-up on BBL, but I might add to my MSFT holding if I like what I see.

      Thanks for commenting!

  2. DivGro - Thanks for sharing your February list of DG stocks! We like MSFT, JNJ, and HP from the list. We also like BBL but I think we have enough shares for now. :)

    Best Wishes! AFFJ

    1. Hi AFFJ -- yes, I have enough BBL for now, too. I doubled up on HP two weeks ago (I still need to do the write-up). JNJ and MSFT are fair game for adding more shares, though.

      Cheers!

  3. Great list. MSFT, JNJ, BBL are companies that we like a lot and want to buy some shares.

    1. Thanks, Tawcan! As mentioned above, I like all of those companies, too, and I own shares in them already. The question in my mind is weather JNJ is discounted enough. I'd like to see $95 before I'm interested.

  4. Hi DIVGRO,
    I really like the list! I agree with your top 3 especially MSFT I was able to grab some shares at 41.56 after the dip. I also have BBL and JNJ on my watchlist. I am really debating on BBL, JNJ or PM as my next purchase at the end of the week here.

    1. Thanks, FI Investor -- glad you like the list. My method of compiling the list is "algorithmic", so every month I'm curious to see which stocks make the list and how the top 10 and 10 sector winners rank. The past few months I've been buying stocks based on the top 10 and, so far, I've been happy with those buys. Good luck with your buys!
