Dividends4Life: Is "Dividend Growth Stocks" a Separate Asset Class?

Dividend Growth Stocks News

I am working on questions of portfolio construction in light of what I have come to accept as the attributes of dividend-growth stocks. The basic issue becomes, how does one meld dividend-growth stocks with the asset allocation principles that have been derived from the teachings of Modern Portfolio Theory? Hypothesis #1: Dividend-Growth Stocks Are a Separate Asset Class:

I might as well start with a proposition that will make traditionalists cringe. I believe that dividend-growth stocks comprise a separate asset class. Traditionally, stocks are sliced and diced in many different ways. The Morningstar Style Box (MSB) has become an industry standard, so common that a category like “large cap value stocks” goes unquestioned as an asset class, and investors are advised to have a certain portion of their assets in that class. So my hypothesis is that, if a single cell of the MSB qualifies as an asset class, then an oval shaped area that cuts across several traditional cells—but which contains stocks that share important behavioral characteristics—also qualifies.
