You have a choice of what securities you put into your retirement or pre-retirement investment account.
Companies that have paid rising dividends over long periods of time have demonstrated the ability to grow over a wide variety of economic environments. And, they pass that growth on to investors through growing dividend payments.
We believe dividend growth stocks match what many investors need in retirement – growing income to supplement or no longer rely on social security.
Which specific dividend growth stocks you invest in matters.
Each month we release our top 10 dividend growth stock buys in The Sure Dividend Newsletter.
The Top 10 list in The Sure Dividend Newsletter is made primarily with data from our Sure Analysis Research Database where we analyze more than 650 dividend stocks, REITs, MLPs, and BDCs quarterly.
The Top 10 rankings are based on expected total returns – which are a combination of growth, valuation, and dividend yield – and our Dividend Risk scores. We look to find high quality dividend growth stocks with strong expected total returns ahead trading at fair or better prices.
The September 2021 Sure Dividend Newsletter Top 10 High Quality Dividend Growth Stocks
Sure Dividend Recommendation #10
This health care company generates more than $25 billion in annual revenue. We expect high growth of ~9% annually on a per share basis over the next five years. And, the company’s stock is trading for a dividend yield of ~3%. With a high expected growth rate and 10 years of consecutive dividend increases, we expect further dividend growth for this business.
Sure Dividend Recommendation #9
This company is in the same industry as our #8 recommendation ahead. This industry has consolidated to only a few large players with strong market positions. This recommendation has a solid 4.5% dividend yield. Including the dividend, we expect annualized total returns over the next five years of ~12% from this blue chip stock.
Sure Dividend Recommendation #8
This stock is one of the leaders in its highly consolidated industry (along with our #9 ranked recommendation). It is also a Dividend Aristocrat with an impressive 30+ year streak of consecutive dividend increases. And it offers an exceptionally high dividend yield of more than 7%.
In addition, we believe the stock to be undervalued which adds to expected total returns. Including modest expected growth of 3.0% per year, we project strong total returns of over 13% annually over the next five years.
Sure Dividend Recommendation #7
This large aerospace and defense company is one of the leaders in its industry. It has a long history of rising its dividend – now at 19 consecutive years.
We are expecting reasonably high growth of 8.0% a year for this company. This growth goes well with a stock price that is trading at under 90% of our fair value estimate. Additionally, this defense industry company has a solid dividend yield of nearly 3%.
Sure Dividend Recommendation #6
This company is the second largest in its industry. This ‘big box retailer’ has put together a surprisingly strong growth history. The company is a Dividend King with more than 50 years of consecutive dividend increases.
And we believe this company’s growth days are far from over… We expect growth on a per share basis of ~7% a year annually over the next five years. While the company’s 1./6% dividend yield isn’t as high as we’d prefer, it is above the S&P 500’s 1.3% dividend yield. And, this company’s stock appears to be trading a bit under fair value.
Sure Dividend Recommendations #5
This bank is smaller than most of the other companies in our Top 10 list this month. It has a market cap of ~$400 million. But despite its smaller size, this company has increased its dividend for more than 25 consecutive years.
And, it offers investors an above market average dividend yield of 2.2%. We expect solid 5.0% growth ahead for this bank on a per share basis. On the valuation side, it is trading for under 85% of our expected fair value, so investors who buy in now can expect a valuation multiple expansion tailwind in the years ahead.
Sure Dividend Recommendations #4
This Dividend Aristocrat operates in a ‘boring’ industry within the consumer staples sector. While the business may not light many people’s imaginations on fire, the company has put together an impressive streak of 46 consecutive years of dividend increases.
We believe the market isn’t fully appreciating this stable dividend grower. Shares are trading at under 85% of our estimate of fair value. Overall, we expect annualized total returns over the next five years of more than 11%, including the stock’s ~2.5% dividend yield.
Sure Dividend Recommendations #3
This consumer discretionary sector company was founded back in 1954. It operates within an industry that you wouldn’t expect would have the stability to generate a long streak of rising dividends… And yet, this company has increased its dividend payments to shareholders for 26 consecutive years.
What’s more, this company’s stock appears significantly undervalued at current prices. We believe it is trading at under 80% of its fair value. We expect ~5% growth on a per share basis over the next five years. This stock currently offers investors a dividend yield of ~2%.
Sure Dividend Recommendations #2
This bank industry stock has a market cap under $2 billion, was founded in the 1980’s, and generates over $400 million in annual revenue. It has an impressive streak of 28 consecutive years of dividend increases.
We expect this bank’s dividend growth streak to continue as we are projecting earnings-per-share growth of around 6% a year over the next five years. This growth goes with a 2.5% dividend yield and an undervalued stock price relative to fair value. We believe this bank is trading at under 85% of its fair value.
Sure Dividend Recommendations #1
Our top ranked stock this month is an established health care business that can trace its roots all the way back to 1887. And, it has a 14 year streak of consecutive dividend increases.
The stock’s 3% dividend yield offers income investors more than twice the yield of the broader S&P 500. And, this health care company’s stock looks significantly undervalued. It is trading at under 70% of our estimate of fair value. This low valuation level gives this health care business’ stock high expected annualized total returns of ~14% over the next 5 years.
