Someone recently asked me to "let them know what my next investment was going to be, so they could get in at the price I pay." I usually keep a running list of dividend stocks that I want to buy, along with target prices, but I hadn't updated the list in a while. So I decided to do a little research and see what sort of compelling buys I could find in today's environment.
I used the following screening filters to give me a starting list of dividend growth stocks that I might want to consider:
Yield between 4% and 8%
1-year dividend growth rate at least 10%
Recent average dividend growth rate at least 8%
Exclude All MLPs
These were the results...
