In my first exclusive article for Seeking Alpha, I presented the Blogger's Portfolio, an imaginary portfolio compiled by aggregating the public portfolios of dividend growth investment (DGI) bloggers. At the time, McDonald's Corporation (MCD), The Coca-Cola Company (KO) and AT&T Inc (T) topped the list of most popular dividend growth stocks held by DGI bloggers with public portfolios.
I repeated the exercise last year, creating the 2015 edition of the Blogger's Portfolio with data from 43 public portfolios listed on my blogroll. The most popular stock, held by no fewer than 36 out of 43 portfolios, was Johnson & Johnson (JNJ). AT&T and Coca-Cola swapped places, while McDonald's dropped to seventh place.
Soon I'll present the 2016 edition of the Blogger's Portfolio.
With this article, I'm presenting a similar analysis using a different data source – the top 25 holdings of dividend ETFs (exchange-traded funds). The analysis produced a ranked list of the 45 top dividend growth stocks held in dividend ETFs.
To see the Top Holdings of Dividend ETFs, please read this article at Seeking Alpha. I'm happy to say this is my first Editor's Pick article!
How does your portfolio compare? How many of the top 10 stocks do you own? How about the top 25 stocks? Are there any surprises?
Please share your answers here (or at Seeking Alpha) and I'll try my best to reply as soon as possible.
