10 Dividend Growth Stocks For March 2018

David Fish maintains a list of dividend growth stocks with at least five consecutive years of paying higher dividends. Colloquially called the CCC list, it contains more than 800 dividend growth stocks trading on U.S. exchanges. The CCC list and the accompanying spreadsheet is a wonderful source for dividend growth investors and I've been using it for years.

In my monthly 10 Dividend Growth Stocks 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 remaining stocks and assign a 7-star rating to each stock. Stocks rated 5 stars or better are worthy of further analysis.

This month I added the top “wealth creators” of all time (at least those still on the CCC list) to my DivGro DG stocks, forming a combined list of 63 candidate stocks.

The top "wealth creators" is identified in a paper by Hendrik Bessembinder from Arizona State University: Do Stocks Outperform Treasury Bills?

The paper shows that most individual U.S. common stocks provide buy-and-hold returns that fall short of the returns earned on one-month U.S. Treasury bills over the same time frame. In fact, only 50 stocks are responsible for nearly 40% of the net wealth created since 1926!

Adding these top "wealth creators" to the DivGro's DG stocks formed a list of 63 candidate stocks, which I ranked using data available in the CCC spreadsheet and additional sources like finbox.ioMorningstarF.A.S.T. Graphs, and Simply Wall St.

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