10 Dividend Growth Stocks for January 2017

Every month, I rank a selection of David Fish's CCC dividend growth stocks and present the top 10 ranked stocks as candidates for further research.

This article reveals the top 10 ranked stocks for January.

A year after resuming the monthly 10 Dividend Growth Stock series, I look back to see how the year-ago selection performed.

David Fish maintains a list of stocks with at least five consecutive years of dividend increases. Colloquially called the CCC list, it contains more than 750 dividend growth stocks trading on U.S. exchanges. While the CCC list and the accompanying spreadsheet is a wonderful source for dividend growth investors, analyzing more than 750 stocks is near impossible. 

My monthly 10 Dividend Growth Stocks series attempts to identify 10 stocks worthy of further research. To create the list, I trim the CCC list to a manageable number of stocks, rank the trimmed list, and assign a 7-star rating to each stock. In my view, stocks rated 5 stars or better are worthy of further analysis.

To see the top 10 ranked stocks for January, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.

  1. Some really nice companies on that top ten list. Number one seems to be popping up lately even though they have a large battle ahead of them. A lot of confidence in the market right now that they will beat the lawsuit and come out OK on the other end. All the best for 2017.

    1. Thanks for reading and commenting! QCOM certainly has some challenges ahead, but, as I pointed out in a comment, I can't believe that the company all of a sudden is worth less than $16B, just because of a lawsuit. We'll see how it goes, but I think QCOM will be fine.
