8 Dividend Picks With A Predictable Growing Business

I like growing stocks which give returns back to shareholders via dividends and buybacks.
Both are very popular and shareholder-friendly activities.

Attached is a fresh list from today's screen I've created. I was looking for solid yielding stocks with good fundamentals and modest growing sales and income.



8 U.S. based stocks appeared on my screen. Also on the list were two German Car makers, Daimler and BMW. Those are too cyclic for me and they cause much CAPEX.

The screening criteria looks a little bit like a safe haven screen but stocks are risky in general. I've written in the past about stocks with a low beta ratio. That's a great measure to evalueate stocks by their risk in relation to the overall market.

These are my highlights from the dividend screen:

Walgreens Boots Alliance (NYSE:WBA) has a market capitalization of $72.87 billion. The company employs 175,000 people, generates revenue of $76,392.00 million and has a net income of $2,031.00 million.
