I'm Adding CVS Health To My DivGro Portfolio

CVS Health Corporation (CVS) ranked third in the March edition of my 10 Dividend Growth Stocks series of articles on Seeking Alpha.

The stock is trading down more than 30% from an all-time high price of $113.45, recorded in July 2015. As a result, CVS is trading at a 5-year high yield.

In this article, I explain why I'm adding CVS to DivGro. The article provides a full stock analysis and includes some risk factors, too.

  1. Hi Ferdi , retail is tough business , CVS 's net profit margin at 3% is even lower then WMT's . What is your point ?

    1. I guess I'm not quite sure how to respond to your question. Did you read the article at Seeking Alpha? If it doesn't provide the case for a long-term investment in CVS for the DGI, I guess I can't convince you. Take care.
