10 Best Dividend Growth Stocks For 2017

It's no secret that a high-quality portfolio of dividend growth stocks is one of the most powerful long-term wealth compounding tools.

Of course, the hardest part of investing is identifying high-quality companies and separating them from lesser-quality ones.

One great way to do this is find companies with high returns on invested capital, or ROIC. ROIC tells us how good management is at converting capital into profits that can go toward paying secure and growing dividends over time.

Better yet, studies show that over the long term a company's total returns generally track its ROIC, which means that dividend growth companies with high ROICs are good choices for your diversified dividend portfolio.

Let's take a look at 10 high-quality, high-ROIC dividend growth names, all of which have bright futures and can be great allies in reaching your own financial goals, such as living off dividends in retirement.

These are the results...
