Every month I rank a selection of David Fish's CCC list to identify suitable dividend growth stocks for further analysis. The list contains all U.S.-listed stocks that have raised their dividends for at least 5 consecutive years. It is a wonderful resource worth checking out! The latest list (dated 6/30/15) contains 726 stocks.
Ranking so many stocks would be a daunting task. To simplify things, I apply a series of filters to reduce the list to a more manageable number of stocks. I assign a star-rating to each stock out of a maximum 7 stars. The rating is based on the dividend discount model and fundamental analysis.
I have an ongoing goal of balancing my DivGro portfolio across all 10 GICS (Global Industry Classification Standard) sectors, so I'm careful to retain a minimum number of stocks per sector. Later I present the 10 sector winners.
