10 Dividend Growth Stocks For December 2017

David Fish's CCC list contains dividend growth stocks that have paid higher dividends for five consecutive years. This list is updated every month and contains more than 800 stocks. An accompanying spreadsheet provides key statistics of the CCC stocks.

Ranking so many stocks would be a daunting task. To simplify things and to introduce some variation from month to month, I use different screens to trim the CCC list to a smaller selection of candidate stocks. I rank these candidates and present the top 10 ranked stocks in my monthly 10 Dividend Growth Stocks series.

This month screen favors a selection of CCC stocks with high Safety and Growth scores according to Simply Safe Dividends.



I used the Advanced Stock Screener available at Simply Safe Dividends to select candidate stocks. I screened for stocks with Safety and Growth scores above 80, stocks with a market cap of at least $1 billion, and stocks yielding at least 1.4%. Additionally, I required an FCF Payout Ratio of no more than 60% and a positive 5-year EPS growth rate.

The abovementioned screens produced 48 candidates, but 2 of these are not CCC stocks.

To find the top 10 stocks, I ranked the 46 CCC candidates using data from the CCC spreadsheet and additional sources like MorningstarS&P Capital IQ, and F.A.S.T. Graphs.

The top 10 ranked stocks for December 2017 is presented in this article at Seeking Alpha.
