Dividends4Life: Four Dividend Stocks Meet Tough Earnings Test

Four Dividend Stocks Meet Tough Earnings Test

Posted by D4L | Friday, January 08, 2016 | 0 comments »

A faster growth rate is usually good news for a stock, even a dividend stock where steadiness is the usual focus. A screen of IBD's Dividend Leaders found only four stocks that met a stringent three-pronged test for such stocks: Earnings per share estimates for 2015-16 are above the company's three- and five-year growth rates; recent revisions have risen recently for this year and next year; and the EPS growth rate is expected to accelerate from 2015 through 2016.

McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) shows three- and five-year earnings growth rates of minus 6% and 0%, respectively. Kimberly-Clark (NYSE:KMB), a household products provider, sports three- and five-year EPS growth rates of 3% and 4%. Maxim Integrated Products (NASDAQ:MXIM), a semiconductor maker, carries three- and five-year earnings growth rates of minus 3% and 1% respectively. Reynolds American (NYSE:RAI), a cigarette maker, shows three- and five-year EPS growth rates of 8% each.
