10 Dividend Growth Stocks For January 2018

The CCC list is a wonderful source for dividend growth investors. Compiled and updated every month by David Fish, the CCC list contains U.S. companies with at least 5 consecutive years of higher dividend payments. The accompanying spreadsheet provides key statistics of the CCC stocks.

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

This month, I decided to select CCC stocks by compiling popular dividend growth stocks and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) from recent Seeking Alpha articles, and stocks in my DivGro portfolio.
The first selection of stocks is from my November update of the Top Holdings of Dividend ETFs. Of the top 50 holdings, five stocks are not in the CCC list and therefore are discarded: Intel (INTC), General Electric (GE), DowDuPont (DWDP), Ford (F), and Entergy (ETR).

Next, I added CCC stocks matching the 50 top-ranked REITs and stocks from my recent analysis of Top Holdings of Real Estate ETFs. In this case, only half of these candidates made the cut.

Finally, I added the top 10 ranked stocks from last month's article, 10 Dividend Growth Stocks for December 2018 as well as all the stocks in my DivGro portfolio that happen to be in the latest CCC list.

In all, this compilation produced a list of 95 candidates, which I ranked using data available in the CCC spreadsheet and additional sources like MorningstarS&P Capital IQF.A.S.T. Graphs, finbox.io, and Simply Safe Dividends.

The top 10 ranked stocks for January 2018 is presented in this article at Seeking Alpha.
