10 Dividend Growth Stocks For July 2017

David Fish maintains a list of stocks trading on U.S. exchanges with at least five consecutive years of paying higher dividends. Colloquially called the CCC list and presented in a spreadsheet, the list is a wonderful source for dividend growth investors.

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

The latest CCC list (dated 6/30/17) contains 824 stocks. This month, I trimmed the CCC list using screens based on the Value Line Ranking System:

  1. Financial Strength Rating of B++ or better
  2. Safety Rank of 1 or 2 
  3. Timeliness Rank of 1, 2, or 3
Using these screens trims the CCC list to 194 candidates.

After performing a preliminary ranking of the 194 candidates, I selected the top 100 candidates and ranked them using data from the CCC spreadsheet and additional sources like MorningstarS&P Capital IQ, and F.A.S.T. Graphs.

My ranking system favors established dividend paying stocks with strong fundamentals and stocks potentially trading at or below fair value. Dividend safety is another important factor.
