The Highest Quality Dividend Growth Stocks

David Van Knapp used a simple yet elegant system to identify the highest quality dividend growth [DG] stocks in this June 2020 article. The system employs five widely used quality indicators from independent sources and assigns 0-5 points to each quality indicator, for a maximum of 25 points. I call this system DVK Quality Snapshots

This article updates David Van Knapp's June 2020 article. I applied the same stringent screens to the DG stocks in  Dividend Radar and found 60 stocks that passed. All these stocks scored at least 20 points according to DVK Quality Snapshots. They truly are the highest quality DG stocks around! 

I provide two bonus lists, one containing stocks that failed the S&P Credit Rating screen and another containing stocks that scored at least 20 total points but otherwise failed the stringent quality screens.

After learning about David Van Knapp's Quality Snapshots scoring system, I abandoned my complex and somewhat esoteric quality assessment system and started using his system. I love the simplicity of DVK Quality Snapshots, and it does a remarkable job identifying high-quality stocks!

In the last few years, David and I have corresponded about DVK Quality Snapshots. We discussed adding additional quality indicators, and we made minor adjustments based on feedback from readers of my articles. We hope to continue using the same system, even if there are incidental differences in our approaches.
