September 2017 Dividend Growth Watchlist

Pexels.com
Here are my top 10 companies that I am watching in September.  These companies all pass the Dividend Family Guy stock screen and are worthy of further research.

ADM is back on the list and GAP (GPS) has fallen off.  Some recent positive analysis and news has caused GAP to surge.  Its PE is still low at 13.33 and the dividend yield is still above 3 so I will still keep them in my digital watchlist.

Around September 5 ADM would have been a good by but that ship has sailed and the price has climbed the rest of this month.  PE is at 18.59 and the dividend has dropped to 2.92%.

For some additional food for though I added an additional 10 stocks that were next in line.  Below is how the top 10 have performed since I setup the list in the beginning of the month.  The markets continue to skyrocket to value is hard to find.  I already own most of my top 10 so maybe cash is king for now.

 

Happy dividend hunting,
Dividend Family Guy

  1. ADM has caught my attention as well and will be featured as one of the companies on my watch list. Thanks for putting this listing together!

    1. When things do go down Agriculture is a standby to have in your portfolio. ADM is looking better each day.
