10 Dividend Growth Stocks: May 2024

In this series, I rank a selection of Dividend Radar stocks and present the 10 top-ranked stocks for further research and possible investment. 

This month, I'm presenting candidates with 5-year earnings growth rates and 5-year trailing total returns above 17%. These screens produce candidates with strong total return prospects.

I own only three of the ten candidates in my DivGro portfolio.

May 2024 Newsletter

Welcome to the MAY edition of my DivGro 2.0 newsletter!

This edition comes in two parts because I have more transactions to cover than I normally do. Part 1 covers the April market recap and an overview of my DivGro portfolio, including April's sell transactions. Part 2 covers my April buy transactions and presents this month's top-10 lists of Dividend Radar stocks.

In February, I decided to increase my investment in stocks with higher dividend growth rates (and lower dividend yields). Such stocks tend to produce superior total returns. 

To support this change, I recently updated my system for determining target weights for DivGro positions. This dynamic and flexible system, which now places more emphasis on a stock's quality score and dividend growth rate, is designed to enhance the performance and balance of my portfolio.
