Quarterly Review of DivGro: Q4-2022

Welcome to the 40th quarterly review of DivGro, my portfolio of dividend growth stocks. 

Quarterly reviews provide a summary of dividend income, dividend changes, and transactions executed in the past quarter. I also provide some charts showing various portfolio statistics. These reviews are mostly informational and help me to track progress over time.

My portfolio generated more than $11,580 of dividend income this quarter, and I'm projecting dividend income of at least $11,970 per quarter going forward.

10 Dividend Growth Stocks For January 2023

Welcome to another edition of my monthly series of 10 Dividend Growth Stocks. In this series, I rank a selection of Dividend Radar stocks and present the ten top-ranked stocks for further research and possible investment. 

This month, I screened for high-quality stocks with great growth and income prospects and very safe dividends. Additionally, I screened for stocks trading at discounted valuations, so this month's stocks offer great value as well! 

I ranked the stocks using a new version of Quality Snapshots in which I added another quality indicator, 
Portfolio Insight's Dividend Quality Grade.

The Dividend Kings Ranked By Quality Score

Dividend Kings are great companies that have increased their annual dividend payouts for 50 or more consecutive years! This achievement is remarkable because these companies have delivered ever-increasing dividends to investors through economic recessions, market crashes, technological revolutions, and changes in consumer tastes!

In this article, I rank the Dividend Kings using quality scores obtained from a variation of DVK Quality Snapshots in which I replaced one quality indicator and added another. With a total of six quality indicators, each scored out of 5 points, the version of Quality Snapshots I'm using in this article has a maximum quality score of 30 points. 

Based on their quality scores, I rate stocks as Exceptional (29-30), Excellent (26-28), Fine (21-25), Decent (16-20), Poor (11-15), and Inferior (0-10). Investment Grade ratings have quality scores in the range of 16-30, while Speculative Grade ratings have quality scores below 16 points. 

This article updates one I wrote in April 2022

7 Dividend Growth Stocks For January 2023

Happy New Year!

I’m excited to present the January edition of my monthly series of dividend growth [DG] stocks picked from Dividend Radar.

Dividend Radar is a weekly automatically generated spreadsheet of DG stocks with dividend increase streaks of five or more years. It is compiled by Portfolio Insight and provided as a free resource for individual and commercial use, with no registration required.

To find candidates for further research and possible investment, I use different screens from month to month. This month, I’m deploying another variation of DVK Quality Snapshots to identify the highest-quality Dividend Radar stocks.

Monthly Review Of DivGro: December 2022

Welcome to the December review of DivGro, my portfolio of dividend growth stocks. This is the 120th monthly review since founding DivGro in January 2013, completing ten years of dividend growth investing and blogging!

In monthly reviews, I summarize transactions, dividends received, and dividend changes and how those events impact DivGro's projected annual dividend income (PADI).

In December, I opened one new position and added shares to three existing positions. Additionally, I closed one position. I also replace two positions called away by options assignments. Twelve DivGro stocks announced dividend increases in December, while one announced a dividend cut, and another will pay smaller dividends in USD due to exchange-rate fluctuations. The net result of these changes is that PADI decreased by about 0.2% in December. Year over year, PADI increased by 16.7%.

As for dividend income, in December, I received dividends totaling $5,927 from 50 stocks in my portfolio, a year-over-year increase of 25%. In 2022, I collected $47,646 in dividends, or about 110% of my 2022 goal of $43,200.

10 Years

Today I'm celebrating a decade since founding DivGro!

I posted my first DivGro article on 10 January 2013. After blogging for 3,652 days and writing 1,351 articles (including this one), DivGro has seen more than 3,468,000 million page views! 

I've averaged an article every 2.7 days or about 11.3 articles every month and about 950 page views per day. 

The number of articles and page views are nice numbers to track, and I'm happy to celebrate these milestones. But DivGro is all about generating a reliable and growing dividend income stream, and tracking DivGro's projected annual dividend income (PADI) is much more relevant!
