I have been producing my Top 40 Dividend Growth Stocks since 2008. The 2014 edition is the seventh. Each year, I go through all dividend-raising stocks in the domestic universe and cull them down through screens and grading scales to identify the best ones. Of course, "best" is defined by the choices I have made to apply tests like minimum acceptable yield; minimum years of dividend growth; financial strength; and even subjective judgments about their business models. Other people with exactly the same investment goals as mine might choose different metrics or weight them differently.

The following six stocks have risen to the top every year. I thought it would be educational to examine them. Let's see whether a portrait emerges of what makes a really good dividend growth stock. The 7-time champions are: Chevron (CVX), Coca-Cola (KO), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), McDonald's (MCD), PepsiCo (PEP) and Procter & Gamble (PG).

    Hi D4L,

    I agree completely!
    This companies are very usefull to build a core-portfolio.
    At the moment I have: PG and MCD.
    I´ll purchase the other four companies in the next 6-12 months!

    If you don´t know, what you can buy - think of your core-portfolio!

    Best regards
