April 2018 Dividend Growth Undervalued Watch List

Every month I apply certain screening metrics, defined below, to sift through those companies that have increased their dividend for at least 20 years.  The screening metrics will change every 6 months, since I am not convinced that I have a fool proof way to determine when a company’s stock price is undervalued. Thoughts before the screen:  With volatility creeping back in vogue, I am not entirely sure what to expect in terms of an outcome.  My hope is that some of that volatility has spilled into some of these long term dividend paying companies.  Maybe, an unloved sector provides me with [...]
