The Top-Ranked Dividend Growth Stocks In The Health Care Sector

Continuing with my new series of ranking dividend growth stocks in each of the GICS sectors, this article takes a look at the Health Care Sector. To rank dividend growth stocks, I sort them by decreasing quality scores as determined by DVK Quality Snapshots. Then I provide quality indicators, key metrics, and fair value estimates for the top-10 ranked dividend growth stocks in the Health Care sector.

This article series stems from a suggestion by a reader, who commented on an article I wrote that presented the three top-ranked dividend growth stocks in each of the GICS sectors. I previously covered the Industrials and Consumer Staples sectors.

The changing landscape in dividend growth investing is challenging. From an all-time high in late February, the S&P 500 lost more than 34% of its value due to uncertainties surrounding the impact of the coronavirus disease of 2019 (COVID-19) on the global economy. While the index has gained back most of those losses, volatility and uncertainty remain.

Dividend growth investors will continue to face difficult decisions, especially when stocks they own suffer dividend suspensions or significant cuts. My approach is to favor investing in the highest-quality dividend growth stocks. I identify such stocks using DVK Quality Snapshots and rank them by quality score.

My hope is this article will give readers looking to expand their Health Care sector holdings a good starting point for stock selection and further research.

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