The Case For Dividend Growth Stocks

Posted by D4L | Friday, March 16, 2012 | | 2 comments »

dividend growth investing is a new strategy. Stock dividends have attracted a lot of attention in the past few months, because in the current low interest rate environment, it appears that some investors have turned to dividend stocks for higher yields. But stock investing based upon receiving and reinvesting dividends is an approach that has been around forever. In many families it is multi-generational.

The dividend growth strategy is about a lot more than high yields. It involves careful stock picking based on a variety of criteria. Some of the qualities of the best dividend growth stocks are great companies with superior business models and moats; managed dividend policies that lead to higher dividend payouts annually; yields that are “high enough”; and good valuations. It is hard to overstate the importance of reliable dividend growth as a component in the strategy.
