The Dividend Family Guy stock screen top 10 identifies dividend growth companies that have a yield of 3% or higher and have been increasing dividends for 10 or more years.  The information is gathered from David Fish's US Dividend Champions spreadsheet

Newcomers to the list include Principal Financial Group (PFG), Edison International (EIX), OGE Energy (OGE), Verizon (VZ)

I am pleased to see some utilities finally appear in the top 10.  I do not own any utilties and they would nicely balance a portfolio as the majority of companies growing and paying dividends for long periods of time are utilities.

 

Verizon is already in my portfolio and I am unlikely to add any more.  The company that really catches my eye is PFG.  That will be one for future research.  The Graham rule shows it trading at a discount and the Chowder rule tells me the 3.02% yield and 19.68% CAGR might be worth it.

Happy dividend hunting,
Dividend Family Guy

  1. PFG is one of my favourites too - although it's a slightly different company for me - Prime Financial Group on the Australian stock exchange. Also looks like it's trading at a discount to me - here's hoping for good things from PFG for both of us!

    Cheers,

    Frankie

    1. Hi FFF,
      Hopefully I will get some time this week to take a closer look at PFG. I have some dividend cash waiting to be reinserted into our lovely market.
      Peace,
      DFG
