Last week, three of our top 20 best dividend stocks saw their ranks move up as Dividend.com Premium members added these stocks to their watchlist. Strong dividend performance and stock price gains since being recommended to investors are the primary reasons these stocks have been attracting interest, but the exciting part is that the best days for these stocks could still be ahead.
3 critical reasons why these stocks are moving up in the most watched stocks list:
- All three stocks are at a perfect crossroad with economic conditions and policy decisions that President Trump is expected to make.
- All three stocks have significantly increased their dividends this year compared to last year.
- All three stocks are trading at their 52-week highs, but at the same time are relatively cheap with their valuations trading marginally above market average.
Rank improvements were also seen for financials and REITs, which we discuss below. Last week didn’t show us major deltas in ranks but the underlying theme from the last few weeks remains constant. Oil & gas, financials, REITs and those stocks that are rated highly in our DARS model irrespective of a particular sector have either maintained their ranks or have been steadily moving up.
