Using Average Dividend Yield For Dividend Growth Stock Valuation

Recently, I started writing for TalkMarkets, an exciting new financial media site with content customized to users’ interests, preferences and level of investment sophistication.

In this article, I discuss how to use historical average dividend yield to do a quick valuation of stable, high-quality dividend growth stocks. I'll be using this method to help guide buy and sell decisions for dividend growth stocks in my portfolio.

Dividend growth investing focuses on investing in businesses with a strong track record of rewarding shareholders through ever-increasing dividend payments. I consider dividend growth stocks to be stocks that have paid higher dividends for at least 5 consecutive years.

10 Dividend Growth Stocks For February 2019

The CCC list is a great resource for dividend growth investors. The list contains 861 stocks trading on U.S. exchanges with the distinction of having paid higher dividends for at least 5 consecutive years. The list is maintained by Justin Law.

In this article, I rank a subset of CCC stocks and present the 10 top-ranked stocks for further research. My ranking system assigns letter grades to stocks relative to their performance among sector peers.

Given increased market volatility, I'm focusing on defensive sectors. This month I decided to rank CCC stocks in the Health Care sector. Defensive stocks tend to outperform the broader market during market downturns.

Monthly Review of DivGro: January 2019

After a miserable fourth quarter in 2018, the stock market rebounded with a vengeance! The 7.9% return of the S&P 500 in January was the best January performance since 1987!

Of course, the S&P 500 was down more than 9% in December, and the index still is 8% below the all-time record it set on 20 September 2018.

December was a busy trading month for DivGro, as I looked to take advantage of discounted prices on high-quality dividend growth stocks. January certainly was quieter, though I opened two new positions and also closed a long-held position.

Options Update: January 2019

As I enter the fourth year of options trading at DivGro, let me remind readers that DivGro's focus continues to be dividend growth investing. Options trading is a fun (and profitable) sideline activity; one that allows me to buy more dividend growth stocks and so to boost DivGro's projected annual dividend income.

I write monthly options update articles to summarize options trades and to keep track of my options income. Each update also serves as a status report on open options and the obligations I potentially have.

I mostly sell puts on stocks I would like to own and covered calls on stocks I already own. Occasionally, I execute more speculative options trades, too, such as bull put spreads and other combo trades.
