10 Dividend Growth Stocks For August 2017

As a dividend growth investor, I love David Fish's CCC list of dividend growth stocks trading on U.S exchanges. Updated every month, the CCC list contains more than 800 stocks trading with at least five consecutive years of higher dividend payments. The accompanying spreadsheet provides key statistics of the CCC stocks.

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 7/31/17) contains 829 stocks. This month I used the dividend stock screener provided by Simply Safe Dividends to select "Very Safe" stocks.

The screener produced 109 stocks, but three of those stocks do not appear in the CCC list. This month, I ranked the 106 remaining candidates using data from the CCC spreadsheet and additional sources like MorningstarS&P Capital IQ, and F.A.S.T. Graphs.

To see the top 10 ranked stocks for August 2017, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.

  1. I'm surprised to see HRL consistently on the top of the list for the past few months. Or at least in the top 10. Haven't seen many people take advantage of that recently. Great stock though. I have it in my portfolio currently. I like seeing CAH move up the list as well. After the last dip, it has pretty good value right now. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi, Dividend Daze -- somehow, I missed your comment -- sorry for not replying earlier.

      HRL seems to be a great stock with good financials. It currently is under some pressure with the turkey issues, but I think it will be fine in the long run! I'm looking to increase my position in time, so we'll see how it goes. I have sold a few puts on HRL.

      Take care and happy investing!
