The Top 10 Dividend Growth Opportunities

This article wraps up my article series on high-quality stocks in each of the GICS sectors. The series of 11 articles presented the 7 highest-ranked dividend growth stocks [DG] in each GICS sector, for a total of 77 stocks. Today, I’m presenting the top opportunities out of these 77 stocks.

I use DVK Quality Snapshots to assess the quality of dividend growth stocks, assigning 0-5 points to each stock based on how they rate on five widely-used quality indicators. The total of these points is a stock’s quality score out of a maximum of 25 points. I rank stocks by sorting them in descending order of quality score. When stocks have the same quality score, I use tie-breaking metrics to rank them. 

This article presents the ten top-ranked stocks out of the 77 DG stocks covered in this series.

I generally use five stock selection criteria when selecting DG stocks for my DivGro portfolio. The criteria relate to stock quality, dividend safety, growth outlook, income outlook, and stock valuation. For this article, I used the following screens to select the top ten DG opportunities:

  1. Stock Quality: High-quality stocks with quality scores of 19-25.

  2. Dividend Safety: Stocks with Very Safe and Safe Dividend Safety Scores, according to Simply Safe Dividends.

  3. Growth Outlook: Stocks likely or somewhat likely to deliver annualized total returns of at least 8%, according to the Chowder Rule.

  4. Income Outlook: Stocks with a 5-year yield on cost of 3.5% or higher.

  5. Stock Valuation: Stocks trading no more than 3% above my risk-adjusted Buy Below prices.
