No Dividend Growth: Keep Or Sell?

Can a dividend growth investor keep non-growing dividend stocks? We always insist on dividend growth, but what happens if your holding shows no more: should you keep or sell? I have built a 5-rule decision process to help investors who find themselves in such a case. Today, we put these rules to the test with concrete examples: GNTX, BPF.UN.TO, DIS, CAE, RCI.A.TO, D, SYZ.TO.

This safe list includes a positive dividend triangle, PRO rating and Dividend Safety scores, payout and PE ratios, dividend yield, the chowder rule, and more!

You’ll Learn

  • Since I founded Dividend Stocks Rock in 2013, I have stressed to investors about dividend growth. It’s even part of my Dividend Triangle. I explain why dividend growth is so important to me.
  • I used to sell any stocks that cut or suspended its dividend. I have slightly changed my mind since then. What circumstances made me review my strategy?
  • We go through the 5-step decision-making process I built to determine if I should keep or sell a stock.
  • We put the rules to the test with Boston Pizza Royalties (BPF.UN.TO), Gentex (GNTX), Disney (DIS), Rogers Communications (RCI.A.TO), CAE (CAE), Dominion Energy (D), Sylogist (SYZ.TO).
  • Despite rules or steps to follow, the interpretation remains subjective to a certain extent. How can investors avoid letting emotions in?
