15 Blue-Chip Dividend Growth Stocks: Love The Businesses Hate The Stocks

Blue-Chip Dividend Growth Stocks

I love blue-chip dividend growth stocks that consistently grow their businesses and their dividends year after year. However, as much as I love blue-chip dividend growth stocks, I simultaneously hate their stocks when they become overvalued. With this video, I am going to cover what I consider to be some of the best businesses and my favorite dividend growth stocks that have become very risky investments.

The risk of course comes from the excessive valuations that the market has currently placed on them. I would invest in every one of these companies if I could purchase them at a reasonable valuation. However, you can overpay for even the best businesses, and by doing so, turn them into lousy investments.

Additionally, I am going to cover what I consider to be some very important nuances about valuation that are often misunderstood. Overvaluation does not simultaneously mean lose money.  In fact, when a stock has momentum, owning it when its overvalued can be extremely profitable. However, I would argue it is also extremely risky when that happens, and point out that the future outcome inevitably will be bad. The exact timing cannot be known, but the ultimate result is. The point being that when you invest in overvalued stocks, you leave the realm of prudent investing and entered the realm of speculation. But the most important point is to be cognizant that you are speculating when you are, and not deluding yourself into believing that you are investing prudently when you are not.
