Dedicated to the success of the individual investor
Dear Fellow Investor,

All investing starts with goals. Whether your goal is long-term wealth accumulation, income
to re-invest, or income to use right now,
dividend growth stocks can help you achieve
your goal.

With quality dividend growth stocks, you become part-owner of successful businesses that
share their profits through dividends. Their payments come directly to you and are paid
in cash. These stocks pay you to invest.

It is surprising how little attention many investors give to dividend growth stocks. Yet quietly,
whether the market goes up, down, or sideways,
dividends growth stocks continue to

These stocks provide cash returns on your investments without having to sell them. Despite
the media's intense focus on markets and prices,
stocks are not only worth what you
could sell them for. Quality dividend growth companies pay attractive yields and raise their
dividends every year. Much of their value comes from those dividend programs,  because
they provide
real cash that rises each year.

These enterprises are consistently profitable, growing their earnings through thick and thin,
and operating with the best business models. And best of all, they share their profits with
their shareholders on a regular basis:
They not only pay but also raise their dividends
every year.
Depending on where you are in life, you can reinvest those dividends to speed
your accumulation of wealth, ramp up your income stream, or take them as current income
that stays ahead of inflation.

There are only a few hundred consistent dividend growth companies in the world. My
TOP 40 DIVIDEND GROWTH STOCKS FOR 2014: A Sensible Guide to
Dividend Growth Investing,
shows you how to find them, evaluate them, and build your
perpetual cash machine of increasing dividends. It presents an exclusive list and
exhaustive analysis of 40 great dividend growth stocks for 2014, plus a
complete guide on
how to construct and maintain your dividend stock portfolio.

The dividend growth strategy allows you to partner with your companies. You share in their
successes rather than trade them like baseball cards.
is the premier how-to-do-it guide for dividend growth investing. It
presents a straightforward sensible method for picking great dividend companies,
identifying fair prices for their stocks, and building your cash-generating portfolio.

Whether your objective is to accumulate wealth over time or to create a reliable
inflation-beating income stream, the dividend growth strategy can work for you.

Following my logical process, you can start to build a new dividend growth portfolio
immediately or re-tool a portfolio you already have.

This message is meant to be quiet, sensible, and informative. It is for adults who are
serious about stock investing. It is for self-directed individuals who want to be intelligent

in superior businesses and collect a fair share of their profits rather than try to
out-gun Wall Street in endless trading games.

The dividend growth strategy is not about trying to double your money every 180 days with
high-risk picks and frequent trading. Rather, it is about staying out of traffic, earning
attractive income, and building long-term wealth along with rights to future income.

1. Why Dividend Growth Stocks are Good for Long-Term Wealth Building

From a long-term perspective, the most profitable stocks have been dividend growth stocks.

Surprised? The stocks with the best total returns are not the headline-grabbing high-growth,
“latest great thing” issues. They are not hot technology stocks. The champions for best total
returns have been dividend-raising stocks.

Look at this fascinating chart from Ned Davis Research, which has been studying dividend-
paying companies since 1972:

Average Annual Total Returns of S&P 500 Stocks
                                    by Dividend Policy, 1972 to 2013

Notice that the annual return from dividend-raising stocks (the bar at the top) far exceeds
the return from non-dividend-paying stocks (the second bar from the bottom). Many studies
have come to similar conclusions. A sample of them are discussed in the eBook.

Even during the high-flying bull market of 1982-2000, when so much total return came from
price increases, dividend stocks outperformed non-dividend stocks. The same thing
happened in the market recovery from 2003-2007.

Studies show that dividends have accounted for around 40% of the total return of
the stock market, year in and year out.
That may surprise you, considering how little
publicity dividends get compared to stock prices. There is no widely reported dividend
index that gets the coverage given every day to the Dow, the S&P 500, and the NASDAQ.

But those indexes show price changes only. (The chart above reflects total returns, not just
price changes.) Thus, traditional indexes give a very incomplete picture of "how stocks are
doing." No wonder dividends pass unnoticed.
But the fact is, hundreds of billions of
dollars are distributed every year by dividend-paying companies.
In 2013, more than
$340 Billion was distributed by S&P 500 companies alone. It is almost like a TARP or
stimulus package every year, and anybody can get in on it.

Dividend-paying stocks are attractive as a core investment for anybody, of any age.

Are you in the accumulation stage of your life? That would be basically everybody short of
retirement. You have immediate financial needs, of course, but you are also saving for
retirement at the same time.

Under the dividend growth approach, you reinvest dividends to accelerate your wealth-
building. The following chart shows the impact of reinvesting dividends.

                Impact of Reinvesting Dividends: S&P 500, 2004-2013

[Depicted: SPY (an ETF that tracks the S&P 500). The blue line shows price returns only. The green line above it
shows total returns with dividends reinvested.]

What causes the big difference between the two lines? Re-investing dividends brings a
second layer of compounding into play.
The first layer comes from the annual
increases in the dividends themselves. The second layer--dividend reinvestment--causes
the phenomenon shown in the chart. When you reinvest dividends, you create a virtuous
circle: Re-invested dividends >> More shares owned >> More dividends to re-invest >> etc.
The green line (total returns with dividends reinvested) pulls away inevitably from the blue
price-only line.

During the so-called Lost Decade (2000-2009), reinvested dividends were responsible for
87% of the S&P 500's total return.

The dividend growth strategy cannot guarantee that you will build a fortune, of course. No
one can control the market value of their portfolio. But
the strategy does tilt the odds in
your favor
that your total wealth will rise over time, and it does insure that you are collecting
dividend rights along the way.
It is these dividend rights that will put you in good
stead when you hit retirement age and need inflation-beating income.


2. Why Dividend Growth Stocks Are Good for Immediate Income

Maybe you are already retired. Are you fed up with the meager yield on Treasuries and
CDs, not to mention next-to-nothing earnings of money market funds? Even with a low 2%
rate of inflation, you may actually be losing spending power. The days when you could
simply salt away a good chunk of your money in U.S. Treasuries and long-term CDs, hoping
to live off the interest, are gone.

The benefit of dividend growth stocks here is pretty obvious:
They provide more income
than fixed income sources, and it
rises over time. Your spending power not only keeps
up with inflation, it surpasses it.

Plus remember,
you do not have to sell your stocks to get the dividends. They are
simply sent to you or credited to your account. You don't have to touch your principal.

You can do anything you like with your dividends. Those dollars are not "trapped" inside the
stock's share price. The dividends are distributed directly to you. They provide positive
returns that are paid in cash.

If you are a retiree, you can spend the dollars as month-to-month income. This is where you
reap the benefits of intelligent wealth-building during your accumulation years. Your income
results from having accumulated all of those dividend rights, in addition to the actual dollar
value of your retirement savings.

Many retirees want to have both income
and a growing nest egg. Dividends make this
possible. You can reinvest some and spend the rest. And, of course, because dividend
stocks are stocks, chances are good that they will generate price appreciation over time,
even without reinvesting the dividends.

In the bear market of 2007-2009, many stocks got devastated. Dividend growth stocks lost
market value too; dividends do not guarantee against short-term paper losses.

But the best dividend stocks held up better than most, and
dividend growth investors
were able to hold on
, because of the cash they were receiving. When the market retreats,
dividend-paying stocks tend to keep their value longer, as investors sell off other shares first.

When the bull rally began in March, 2009, dividend growth stocks generally rose right back
up with the market, even outperforming it when you include the dividends.
And here's the
great thing: Most of the best dividend growth stocks never stopped raising their
dividends straight through the financial crisis and market crash.
Did you know that
more than 400 companies
kept raising their dividends right through the Great Recession?
Their owners' income streams did not crash, they went
up. That is because dividends are
independent of the market.

That leads us to probably the best benefit of dividend growth stocks.
Unlike your pension,
fixed annuity, CD, or bond, your dividend income will grow each year.
 Stocks with
rising dividends are the only ones that appear in the Top 40.


3. How Dividend Growth Stocks Help You Psychologically

Many dividend growth investors find that focusing on their rising dividend stream lifts a great
worry off their shoulders:
They stop worrying so much about the market.

The investing industry, including the business channels on cable TV, is fixated on the
market. But the market only determines price changes. All of the common indexes (such as
the Dow and S&P 500) are price-only indexes.

Such intense focus on the market's ups and downs influences investors to think that
investing is all about a series of short term price triumphs or disasters. Falling prices
instigate fear and panic, while rising prices lead to euphoria and greed.

But emotional impulses are not helpful in making sound long-term investing decisions. In
fact, studies have shown that
many investors regularly make blunders that dividend
growth investing can help them to avoid.

Examples of such mistakes include:

  • Buying on hype, not facts. The stocks in TOP 40 DIVIDEND GROWTH STOCKS
    FOR 2014 have been selected through a logical, fact-based process that has been
    validated over the years. It takes into account not only dividend metrics like yield and
    rate of growth, but also company quality and fundamental financial factors. The system
    is completely transparent, and you can apply it to other stocks that you want to analyze.
  • Panic selling of good stocks. Sometimes, investors get shell-shocked by market
    volatility and sell stocks that are actually good long-term investments. The dividend
    growth strategy can help you avoid this by drawing your attention to your ever-rising
    income stream and to the fundamental merits of your investments that have nothing to
    do with the market circus.
  • Falling in love with a stock. This can be as harmful as panic selling. As detailed in
    the how-to-do-it sections of the eBook, a routine practice in dividend growth investing
    is monitoring your portfolio. In an unemotional, fact-based way, you decide if a stock
    is no longer fulfilling the mission you set for it. You won't trade very often, but if it
    becomes necessary, you will know when and how to do it.

After I reorganized my stock investing around dividend growth in 2008,
I found that I was
no longer stressed about stock price fluctuations or the market
. It was a major shift in
my thinking, and once I made it, I became an investor rather than a trader.

If you focus on the notion of directly participating in the success of the businesses you own,
you can take the market’s ups and downs in stride.
Dividends do not depend on the
market's behavior.
To a dividend growth investor, the market is simply a store where you
go to buy, and occasionally sell, stocks. You do not go there to engage in trading battles.  

Here are just a few of the other benefits of dividend growth investing:
  • Dividends provide ongoing verification of results.
  • You can set realistic goals that can be tracked, because dividends do not fluctuate
    like prices.
  • Dividend increases are usually a positive sign about the company, adding to your
  • Rising dividends protect against inflation.

That last point is important. Do you think the prices of gas or groceries are fixed? Of course
not. That's why bonds and other fixed-income sources can't keep pace. But
growth stocks do keep up with inflation.
The dividends from well-chosen dividend
stocks grow faster than inflation. Five percent, eight percent, or 10 percent annual growth in
dividends is not at all unusual. The average dividend increase for the 40 stocks in 2013's
edition was more than 9 percent, well ahead of inflation.


4. Some Features of 2014's Top 40

Let me give you a few insights into this year's Top 40 Dividend Growth Stocks.

  • All companies on the list except one have increased their dividends for at
    least 5 straight years. This year’s Top 40 includes 16 Dividend Champions (25 or
    more years of consecutive dividend increases), 14 Dividend Contenders (10-24
    years), and 9 Dividend Challengers (5-9 years of increases).
  • Twenty-five of the companies have three-year dividend growth rates of 10
    percent or more.
  • The average projected yield of 2014’s Top 40 is 3.9 percent. Ten companies
    have current yields of 5 percent or more. By comparison, the S&P 500’s current yield
    is around 2 percent.
  • The Top 40 contains stocks from 9 of the 10 economic sectors. A dividend
    growth investor can (and should) assemble a diversified portfolio across the broad
    economic spectrum.
  • Many of the companies derive a significant portion of their revenue and
    earnings from overseas, reflecting our modern global economy. They participate in
    foreign and developing markets even though they are headquartered in the U.S.

The Top 40 were selected through a rigorous process that I use every year. I first run an
initial universe of about 500 dividend growth stocks through several threshold screens to
get the candidates down to a manageable number. Then, I use my
Easy-Rate™ scoring
to identify the best ones. The system looks first at the company's quality, with a
focus on its business model, financial strength, and dividend record. We want high-quality
companies, not just companies with high yields.

After identifying the best companies, I assess each stock’s valuation. That means looking
for the best bargains. The entire system is methodical, understandable, and emotionless.

The cream of the dividend growth stocks make it to the Top 40. They are presented
in seven tables so you can find them easily: (1) alphabetically; (2) by sector; (3) by yield; (4)
by dividend growth rate; (5) by Company Quality score; (6) by Stock Valuation Score; and
(7) by Total Score. Many of them are famous companies that you undoubtedly know. A few
others may be firms that you have never heard of. But they are all great at one thing:
Dispensing reliable growing dividends to their shareholders.

Here is a small sample of the companies that made the grade to the Top 40:

  • Several consumer-products companies supply products with well-known brand
    names. Their business models are based on producing things that people need.
    These companies typically have yields in the 3% range, with some yielding 4%-5% or
  • One famous company may have served you a hamburger within the past week. Or
    maybe a coffee or a smoothie. Its yield is usually in the 3% to 4% range.
  • Several companies help supply you and others with the energy you need for your
    home and vehicles. They produce energy, store it, move it to where it is needed, and
    deliver it to customers. Yields can run from around 3% for major oil companies to over
    6% for pipeline companies run as Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs).
  • Are you anxious about the real-estate market? Some Real Estate Investment Trusts
    never stopped increasing their distributions during the financial crisis. Two of them
    are in the Top 40 with yields in the 5% to 6% range.
  • And once again, returning from every prior year: You drink their soda every day. Oh,
    you drink the other soda? That one’s on the list too. Both are great companies that
    have been increasing their dividends for decades. One of them is the worldwide
    leader in snacks even if you ignore its beverage business. In March, 2014, one of
    them increased its dividend by 9%, a growth rate that it has been maintaining for a

The book includes complete Easy-Rate Scoresheets for each of the Top 40, one page per
stock. This compilation of the best dividend growth stocks is available nowhere else.


5. Why Is the Step-by-Step Guide Important?

There is much more to TOP 40 DIVIDEND GROWTH STOCKS FOR 2014: A Sensible
Guide to Dividend Growth Investing
than the Top 40 stocks themselves.

The eBook also contains a complete how-to-do-it guide. The dividend growth strategy
is presented in logical steps that build a stairway to understanding and action.

Dividend growth investing is not about flash and show. It is not about doubling your money
with risky picks. Rather, it is about owning quality companies and participating in their
success over long periods. This requires a sensible, fact-based approach.

You can see the
Table of Contents here. The text demonstrates how to identify the best
dividend growth companies; how to value them; and how to build and manage your
portfolio. Chapters build the case for dividend growth investing, discuss its pros and cons,
and describe the Easy-Rate system.

One chapter discusses the role of dividend growth investing in retirement planning. And
new this year, I have created a separate chapter about my own dividend growth investing,
including setting goals, creating a portfolio, managing it, and reinvesting dividends.

I write for the individual investor.
The levels of comprehensiveness and quality are
high, but everything is in plain English and presented in a pleasing format.
methodology is totally transparent, and there is nothing that is not fact-based or that you
cannot verify yourself.

The text is non-hyperbolic, educational, and accessible. There are no “Secrets of the Wall
Street Gurus” or “Six Things Wall Street Doesn’t Want You to Know.” Those approaches
appeal to some people, but not to me, and I don’t think to you.

I am excited about dividend-growth investing. I have converted a significant portion of my
family's own nest egg over to dividend growth stocks, in addition to the real-money
Dividend Growth Portfolio tracked on this Web site that I use to demonstrate actual
dividend growth investing in action.

As stated earlier, I think that dividend-paying stocks are an ideal investment for most  
individual investors—about the only exception being someone who is looking for fast hyper-
growth. That is unlikely with dividend stocks. Of course, neither is fast hyper-loss.

Owning dividend stocks is exciting, rewarding, and fun.


6. Features, Benefits, and Distinctions from Competitors

Here are the most important features and benefits of TOP 40 DIVIDEND GROWTH
STOCKS FOR 2013: A Sensible Guide to Dividend Growth Investing

  • Top 40 Stocks: An exclusive compilation of fully analyzed dividend growth stocks for
    2014. Use it as your shopping list to create or improve your dividend growth portfolio.
    These stocks were selected as described above, using a unique, proven approach
    for picking winning dividend growth stocks and identifying favorable valuations. They
    include companies of all types and in diverse industries, including REITs and Master
    Limited Partnerships (MLPs).

  • Completed Easy-Rate™ Scoresheets: One concise sheet per stock, 40 in all, filled
    out according to the point system that I have devised and refined over the past several
    years. The completed Scoresheets save you the work of looking up data and
    evaluating stocks yourself. The hard work has been done for you. I do recommend that
    before buying any stock, you update the information, especially the stock's valuation.
    That has been made easier again this year with the inclusion of free links to the
    F.A.S.T. Graphs used in the valuation process.

  • Clickable links: Each Scoresheet has a clickable link to the company’s Web site. No
    cumbersome URLs to enter into your browser. Another link on each Scoresheet takes
    you to a special page to view an updated F.A.S.T. Graph of your stock. Other links
    throughout the eBook take you to data sources, relevant articles, and the like.

  • Candid discussion of the pros and cons of dividend growth investing.
    Dividend stocks will not satisfy someone looking for hyper-growth in a short period of
    time. They are not usually of interest to rapid-fire or very active traders. The text
    contains a lucid and comprehensive discussion of the pros and cons of the dividend
    growth strategy.

  • Explains how to build, manage, and maintain a dividend stock portfolio.
    Thoroughly covers when to buy, hold, and sell. This eBook is a complete textbook and
    step-by-step guide to dividend growth investing.

  • Real-money portfolio. The Dividend Growth Portfolio maintained on this site is
    governed by the principles in the TOP 40 DIVIDEND GROWTH STOCKS series. It
    illustrates how it all works. The Dividend Growth Portfolio is not a hypothetical model.
    It is real, and the money is my own. Therefore, I take it very seriously. I urge you to
    click the link and read the Dividend Growth Portfolio's latest report card. I update it at
    the beginning of each month. This year, I created a new full chapter about it in the

  • Up to date. The eBook (PDF) format bypasses the lengthy delays of regular book
    publishing. By comparison, an often-seen “Best Stocks of 201x” book is  published
    each year with information that is almost a year old by the time the book hits the
    shelves. The information in my eBook is just days old at the time of publication.

  • Clear, succinct text: About 180 pages of text--well over half the book--comprises a
    friendly, comprehensive, and intelligent discussion about all aspects of dividend
    growth investing. Besides the complete step-by-step guide to creating and
    maintaining a portfolio of dividend growth stocks, there are chapters that lay out the
    theoretical foundations for the dividend growth strategy; a review of 2013 and preview
    of 2014; a handy "cheat sheet" that boils the scoring system down to three pages; a
    chapter on retirement planning; and guides to where to find information and my free
    articles on Seeking Alpha. The book is written in an accessible, conversational style.
    The text is augmented with illustrations, tables, summaries, and other aids to

  • No separate pamphlets. The text is fully integrated. It flows logically. It contains
    complete information that is easily comprehensible. There are no cumbersome
    “bonus reports” that are really just come-ons to make it seem like you are getting lots
    of stuff. That’s just a marketing ploy—and it is also lazy, forcing you to weave
    information from each pamphlet into a complete, integrated picture. My eBook
    weaves it together for you.

  • Table of all stocks that have ever made the Top 40. Every year, because of
    changes in company fortunes, dividend policies, and valuations, some stocks are
    dropped from the Top 40 and replaced by others. Just a handful of companies have
    made it to the top every year. This table displays all of the stocks that have ever done
    so and shows the years they made it. Many of these stocks are still viable dividend
    growth stocks, especially if you already own them. (I hold more than one "old" stock in
    my Dividend Growth Portfolio.) In a way, this is "bonus coverage" of ideas that
    supplements this year's Top 40. There are more than 100 stocks in the table. This
    idea was suggested by a reader, and I am glad to provide it.

  • Instant delivery. You receive an email with a link to the eBook as soon as you
    complete payment. No shipping, handling, or postage fees.

  • Digital edition works on Kindle, Nook, and iPad. Your eReader allows you to
    display PDF documents, so you can load your eBook into your Kindle or Nook. (Note
    that linking functionality is not available, this would be read-only.) You can also order
    the eBook from your iPad and download it into your iPad or transfer it to your tablet
    from your PC. Of course, many readers report that they use this eBook the old-
    fashioned way: They read it on their computer, or they print out the pages and put
    them into a binder. That allows them to highlight passages, dog-ear pages, and treat
    it like an old-fashioned book. Some readers just print out a few key pages, such as
    the "cheat sheet" stock scoring system or the table of Top 40 stocks sorted by yield.

PS: I am really excited about dividend growth investing. I started with it in 2007-08, and in
2011, I abandoned other forms of stock investing. I moved the money into the dividend
growth strategy. That means that a large percentage of my wife's and my personal assets
now reside in our dividend growth portfolios. I have come to understand that if I get the
dividend growth part of my investing right, the portfolio's value will take care of itself. I
sincerely believe that for the average individual investor, this is the best form of stock
investing for the long haul.

Dave, I'm sitting in Starbucks,

If you would like a tool that is
thorough, easy to understand, and leads
you through a non-emotional,
consistent business evaluation
process....I would suggest you purchase
David's Top 40 Stocks of 2014 eBook.

It is way more than a list of 40 stocks.
It provides education on dividend
growth investing, a full evaluation of 40
Stocks, and the Tools to use to perform
the evaluations yourself.

Regardless if you are new to dividend
growth investing or a Veteran, I
personally think it is money well spent.

Congratulations and thank you, Dave,
for another top Top 40 eBook!  

For me, the wake-up call on SYY
alone was worth 100 eBooks (in
unrealized gain). In general, the new
cover is great, PayPal was very
convenient, and the text is first class!  

Your eBook is the text I recommend,
before others, to interested dividend
growth investors.

I just wanted to express my gratitude for
this marvelous masterpiece---obviously
informative, educational,  fascinating and
quite frankly, just plain FUN to read. I
just got it and read it cover to cover.
Great stuff, thanks again.

I just bought and finished my first
read-through of your eBook....I have
been evolving for the past four years
into a retired [dividend growth
investor]. My current [portfolio has] 26
stocks with a yield on cost of 4.73%.
Those dividends, plus Social Security,
more than adequately cover our
retirement needs, including a month in
Maui each year in February....

I did not realize that the whole
dividend growth
philosophy was laid out in your eBook
in such detail. It is fantastic!

The main purpose of this email is to
express sincere thanks to you for
writing it and all your other articles. It
is a wonderful service to all of us
