Dividend Kings: July Dividend Growth Analysis

Last month I presented a graphical analysis of the Dividend Kings based on a subset of my usual criteria to identify larger sets of stocks for further research. From this perspective I have further expanded and modified my quantitative criteria to permit more rapid screening based on dividend, earnings and dividend growth, dividend safety, and valuation. I have also extended my analysis by developing a scaled ranking model to screen sets of stocks for further evaluation.

I now use the following nine criteria for quantitative screening:

  • History of increasing dividends
  • Dividend yield
  • 5 Years EPS growth rate
  • 5 years dividend growth rate
  • 10 years dividend growth rate
  • Payout ratio
  • Long-term debt-to-equity ratio (D/E)
  • 5-year beta
  • P/E Ratio (TTM)
