10 Dividend Growth Stocks For June 2019

Many dividend growth investors rely on the CCC list for their research. Focusing on stocks trading on U.S. exchanges, the list contains nearly 900 stocks that have consistently increased their calendar year payouts for at least the past 5 years. This list and an accompanying spreadsheet providing key data are maintained by Justin Law.

With my monthly 10 Dividend Growth Stocks series, I rank a subset of CCC stocks and present the 10 top-ranked stocks for further research. My ranking system assigns letter grades to stocks relative to their performance among sector peers. Having a sector-oriented ranking system avoids the problems associated with ranking dissimilar stocks.

This month I decided to rank CCC stocks in the Communication Services sector.

Options Update: May 2019

Welcome to another options update article!

I write monthly options update articles to summarize options trades and to keep track of my options income. Each update also serves as a status report on open options and the obligations I potentially have.

The stock market took a bit of a nosedive in May on trade war concerns and volatility is up, so selling options is a little more lucrative (albeit riskier).

After April's poor performance, I'm happy to report that May's trades have regained some ground with regards to my 2019 options income goal. While I'm not back on pace yet, things certainly look better!

Monthly Review Of DivGro: May 2019

Welcome to another monthly review of DivGro, my portfolio of dividend growth stocks. I present details of any buys or sells, and provide a summary of dividends collected. Additionally, I look at how the month's activities have impacted DivGro's projected annual dividend income (PADI).

In May, I opened four new positions and added shares to four existing positions. Additionally, I closed one position due to an options assignment and three DivGro stocks announced dividend increases.

The net result is that PADI increased by about 2.0% in May. Year over year, PADI increased by 25.9%.

As for dividend income, in May I received dividends totaling $1,656 from 19 stocks in my portfolio, a year over year increase of 32%. So far in 2019, I've collected $9,541 in dividends or about 38% of my 2019 goal of $25,200.

Top Holdings Of Dividend ETFs (Part 2: The Top 7 By Sector In May 2019)

In Part 1 of this article, I presented the top 50 holdings of dividend ETFs, ranked by using a proportional scoring system that favors larger investments and larger ETFs. The top-ranked stock in May 2019 is Verizon Communications (VZ), followed AT&T (T), and Exxon Mobil (XOM).

Because there are no Materials and Real Estate sector stocks in the top 50, it would be useful to consider the top-ranked stocks in those sectors regardless of their overall ranking. Therefore, I'm showcasing the top 7 stocks in each GICS sector in Part 2 of the article.
