Dividends4Life: Limited Supply Of Above Average Dividend Stocks

Limited Supply Of Above Average Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, April 17, 2013 | 1 comments »

We did a simple screen today for dividends stocks that are simply above average on several key parameters, and only found two. We never cease to be surprised at how difficult it is to quantitatively find stocks that pass seemingly quite reasonable requirements. The two we found, in fact may not be the best choices, but they are the only ones that met these simple criteria used after the close today (2012-04-15):

Yield equal to or greater than median, 5-yr dividend growth equal to or greater than median, current YOY dividend growth equal to or greater than median, S&P year ahead performance expectations above average, S&P current fair value rating above average, S&P earnings and dividend quality above average and Thomson/Reuters StarMine year ahead rating above average. The two stocks are Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) and AFLAC (AFL).

    Wow, only two made the cut. That is pretty amazing. So with low interest rates and lousy dividends what are the more conservative or older investors to do? Your thoughts?
