My Highest Quality Dividend Challengers

This article presents the highest-quality Dividend Challengers, which are companies listed on U.S. exchanges that have consistently higher annual dividend payouts for at least 5-9 years. 

Companion articles presented the highest-quality Dividend Champions (25+ years) and Dividend Contenders (10-24 years).

I use a quality scoring system that employs six quality indicators from trusted and independent sources. Each quality indicator contributes up to 5 points to a stock's quality score, for a maximum of 30 points.

To screen for the highest quality Dividend Challengers, I screened for stocks with quality scores in the range of 21-30.

August Newsletter

I just published the July edition of my DivGro 2.0 newsletter.

Welcome to the August edition of my monthly newsletter. Following a quick market recap, I review my DivGro portfolio (as of 31 July 2023) and conclude with four top-10 lists!

In July, I opened one new position and added shares to three existing positions. Additionally, I closed one position. Seven DivGro stocks announced or paid higher dividends in July. 

The net result of these changes is that DivGro's projected annual dividend income (PADI) increased by about 1.0% in July. Year over year, PADI increased by 5.4%.
