Dividend Champions Analysis: Matthews International Is The Newest Champion

In this article, I present an analysis of a modified list of the Dividend Champions. I analyze all stocks in the list except the Dividend Kings. I track the Kings separately due to their long-term success in growing dividends. You can read my recent analysis update on the Dividend Kings. The top five stocks in my ranking model in order are A.O. Smith (AOS), T. Rowe Price Group (TROW), Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA), BancFirst Corp. OK (BANF), and Ross Stores, Inc. (ROST). This is unchanged except for the order. Out of these five stocks, only Walgreens Boots really interests me at the moment. The stock price has been trending down a bit since my last article on the Dividend Champions and the yield has been trending up. Sysco Corporation (SYY) is now a Dividend King since the company has raised the dividend for 50 consecutive years. There is one addition to the Dividend Champions List: Matthews International Corporation (MATW). I provide a summary analysis of Matthews International, which ranks highly in my model.
