Top 100 Dividend Growth Companies

Here is my initial list of the top 100 dividend growth companies.  All the companies meet my favored criteria, including;

  1. A company that pays a stable, growing dividend
  2. A company that maintains a high historical dividend yield
  3. A company that is undervalued based upon historical price/sales analysis
  4. A company with a solid balance sheet and moderate payout ratio

The list if diversified by sector and industry.  It is a good place for any astute dividend investor to start to examine good stock candidates for inclusion in your dividend stock portfolio.
