5 Top-Ranked Dividend Growth Stocks for Q2

Dividend is a major source of consistent income for investors in any type of market though it does not offer dramatic price appreciation. While there are several dividend stocks that could provide capital appreciation, zeroing in on those with a history of dividend growth should lead to a healthy portfolio, with greater scope for capital appreciation as opposed to simple dividend-paying stocks or those with high yields.

Dividend Growth: A Winning Strategy

Stocks that have a strong history of dividend growth belong to mature companies, which are less susceptible to large swings in the market, and thus act as a hedge against economic or political uncertainty as well as stock market volatility. At the same time, these offer downside protection with their consistent increase in payouts.

Additionally, these stocks have superior fundamentals that make dividend growth a quality and promising investment for the long term. These include a sustainable business model, a long track of profitability, rising cash flows, good liquidity, a strong balance sheet and some value characteristics. Further, a history of strong dividend growth indicates that dividend hike is likely in the future.

Although these stocks do not necessarily have the highest yields, they have outperformed for a longer period than the broader stock market or any other dividend-paying stock.
