10 Dividend Growth Stocks For December 2018

With my monthly 10 Dividend Growth Stocks series, I rank a subset of CCC stocks and present the 10 top-ranked stocks for further research.

In the October edition, I debuted a new ranking system. The ranking system assigns letter grades to stocks relative to their performance among sector peers. Having a sector-oriented ranking system avoids the problems associated with ranking unlike stocks.

This month I decided to rank CCC stocks in one of the defensive sectors, Consumer Staples. Given the increase in market volatility since October, perhaps it is prudent to start considering defensive stocks. Defensive stocks tend to outperform the broader market during market downturns.

The latest CCC list contains 865 stocks. Of these, 47 are Consumer Staples sector stocks. I ranked 40 of these stocks after excluding stocks with yields below 1%, stocks with market capitalization below $1 billion, and stocks trading over the counter.


To see the top 10 ranked stocks for December 2018, please read this article at Seeking Alpha. As usual, I provide fair value estimates and key metrics, as well as F.A.S.T. Graphs charts for three of the top 10 ranked stocks.
