In the beginning of the first Quarter of the year, many investors review their portfolios and adjust the basic risks. We all hope for a good year on the market and, most importantly, steady dividend growth increase among our portfolio.
I selected a couple of companies with long-term dividend growth growth of which I think they will perform well in 2017 and will increase their dividend payouts.
My main criteria are the following onces:
- Dividend Champion
- Debt-to-Equity under 1
- 5 Year EPS Growth over 5%
- Forward P/E under 20
- Positive Past Sales growth
18 Stocks from the Dividend Champs List remain. Maybe you agree or not. Please leave a comment about your thoughts related to the list.
