10 Dividend Growth Stocks For January 2021

Welcome to another edition of my monthly series of 10 Dividend Growth Stocks. In this series, I rank a selection of dividend growth stocks in Dividend Radar and present the 10 top-ranked stocks for consideration. 

To rank stocks, I use DVK Quality Snapshots to get quality scores and sort them in descending order, breaking ties with additional metrics.

This month, I screened for discounted stocks yielding at least 3%. I also required stocks to have a Chowder Number (CDN) that indicates some likelihood of annualized returns of 8% or higher. 

The latest Dividend Radar (dated January 15, 2021) contains 737 stocks. Of these, 18 have yields of at least 3%, trade at discounted valuations (based on my own fair value estimates), and have favorable or somewhat favorable CDNs. I ranked these stocks and present the 10 top-ranked stocks for consideration. 

To see December's top-ranked dividend growth stocks, please read this article at Seeking Alpha. As usual, I provide fair value estimates and key metrics for each of the top-ranked stocks.

  1. Too bad can't read article as it is behind seekingalpha paywall. Don't know why I bother trying to read blog entries anymore as I just get linked to pay sites.

    1. I'm sorry you can't access the article for free.

      Understand my perspective, too, though. Researching and writing these articles take time, and I won't continue to do it without some form of compensation. Seeking Alpha is attempting to build a sustainable business model to compensate authors for quality content.

  2. I care about your analysis way more than paying to Seeking Alpha.. If you make this site paid, I will pay for it.. SeekingAlpha is discouraging young investors who are just starting to learn discipline IMO.. If I have choice, I will move to Yahoo Finance which is still free.

    1. Thanks for sharing your opinion and endorsing the value you get from my articles. That is great to hear. I'm sorry that the change in Seeking Alpha's model is chasing you, and other readers, away. I hope Seeking Alpha will tweak their model to allow for some free access reading.

    1. Thanks, DAVE -- I appreciate your endorsement. If I can find a good model to provide free access to some articles and pages, and a subscription-based way to others, I would certainly consider it.

  4. I think the problem for someone like me is that I put in less than 10,000 a year to a retirement account annually. If I pay SA's subscription fee, that means I automatically lose 4% of my contribution to pay for their subscription fee, which is stupid if I'm only following one or two contributors. There are plenty of other data sources I can mine for stock analysis. This author's contributions are definitely worth *something* but it's hard to justify anything like that at my investment level. Unfortunately I'm pretty sure SA's subscription model is likely to drive their entire site into the ground. They aren't going to get any new users and a majority of the existing ones are going to bail for some other variation of a semi-public moderated forum where they can comment on articles.

    1. I can certainly appreciate your predicament. I'm hoping Seeking Alpha would tweak its model and still allow readers to access at least some number of articles for free every month. Otherwise, they will quickly reach a growth ceiling. Communication to contributors suggest that there has been a tremendous uptick in subscribers following the change, so I don't think the site will be driven "into the ground". In the end, the question to answer will be, does Seeking Alpha provide sufficient value to warrant a subscription. In your view, it does not and you feel you can get what you need elsewhere. Many others seem to think otherwise, and have subscribed. The ad-based model is broken and does not provide a consistent income stream to make a serious business model work. Many readers have moved to using smartphones to access Seeking Alpha, and clicking on ads there is even less of a viable business model. Perhaps a less expensive subscription model would do the trick, in which a specific number of articles is unlocked every month?
