The Top-Ranked Dividend Growth Stocks In The Consumer Staples Sector

While the stock market has recovered much of the losses suffered in late February and March, the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic remains significant. Nearly 40 million Americans have filed unemployment claims in April and May, and GDP numbers will soon show the largest contraction since the Great Depression. In my view, it is crucial for dividend growth investors to focus on quality even more than before!

In April, I presented the three top-ranked dividend growth stocks in each of the GICS sectors. Following a reader's suggestion, I decided to start a new series of articles ranking dividend growth stocks in each GICS sector by quality score. The first article presented the top-ranked Industrials.

This article presents the ten top-ranked dividend growth stocks in the Consumer Staples sector.

For each stock, I provide quality indicators, key metrics, and fair value estimates. To rank dividend growth stocks, I sort them by decreasing quality scores as determined by DVK Quality Snapshots and I use three additional metrics to break ties.

I hope this article will give dividend growth investors looking to expand their Consumer Staples sector holdings a good starting point for stock selection and further research.

To see the top-ranked dividend growth stocks in the Consumer Staples sector, please read this article at Seeking Alpha. As a bonus, I include tickers of lower-ranked dividend growth stocks in the Consumer Staples sector (stocks ranked 11-30). 

Thanks for reading! If you liked this article and would like to read similar articles in the future, please subscribe to receive an e-mail message whenever I post a new article.
