10 Dividend Growth Stocks For July 2018

The CCC list is a valuable source for dividend growth investors.

Previously compiled by the late David Fish and now maintained by Justin Law, the CCC list contains U.S. companies with streaks of at least 5 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's top 10 list contains two 7-star and eight 6-star stocks.

This month, I trimmed the CCC list using screens based on the Value Line Ranking System:
  1. Financial Strength Rating of A or better
  2. Safety Rank of 1 or 2
These screens trim the latest CCC list (dated 6/29/18) from 891 stocks to 155 candidates. I ranked these candidates using data available in the CCC spreadsheet. From the preliminary ranking, I selected the top 50 candidates and ranked them using data from the CCC spreadsheet and additional sources like finbox.ioSimply Safe DividendsMorningstar, and F.A.S.T. Graphs.

To see the top 10 ranked stocks for July 2018, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.
