10 Dividend Growth Stocks For April 2018

The CCC stocks is a list of dividend growth stocks with at least five consecutive years of higher dividend payments. Updated monthly by David Fish, the list of CCC stocks contains more than 800 dividend growth stocks trading on U.S. exchanges.

In my monthly 10 Dividend Growth Stocks series, I identify 10 CCC stocks worthy of further research. An in-depth analysis of every stock on the CCC list would be a monumental task, so I trim the CCC stocks to a smaller number of candidate stocks.

I use different screens every month for variation. This month, I screened for CCC stocks using a set of filters I call the sevens filters:

Here are the filters:
  • Dividend Streak ≥ 7 years
  • 1.77% ≤ Yield ≤ 7.77%
  • EPS% Payout ≤ 77%
  • 5-year DGR ≥ 7.7%
  • Market Cap ≥ $777 million
The sevens filters find good candidates with reasonable growth, yield, and safety metrics.

I performed a preliminary ranking of the 110 candidates that passed the sevens filters and selected 52 stocks for the final analysis and ranking. I ranked these candidates using data available in the CCC spreadsheet and additional sources like Morningstar,, F.A.S.T. Graphs, and Simply Safe Dividends.

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