All Dividend Growers From The Past Week And My Favorites

Have you ever noticed those that most vehemently attack a buy-and-hold strategy really don't understand how the strategy works? 

They confuse a buy-and-hold strategy with day trading with a longer duration. A true implementation of buy-and-hold includes a focus on blue-chip stocks with a sustainable advantage, along with a reasonable asset allocation framework. 

One sign of a blue-chip stock is a long string of dividend increases. Below all companies that have recently raised the bar by increasing their cash dividends

In total, 71 stocks announced a higher dividend of which 14 have a high yield (over 5%) and 40 a cheap forward P/E (less than 15).

Attached you will also find my 19 favorite stocks from the list. Each stock has solid fundamentals and earnings growth potenital while the debt situation is acceptable.

  1. Hi,

    maybe I am biased as I bought Apple few days ago (after weak 2Q results, but timing still not the best), but in case of Apple you should consider taking excess cash out of market cap while calculating P/E ratio - then company is even cheaper... with an indefinite (?) potential to increase dividends or increasing EPS while buying back shares.

    best regards,
    DividendTIME
