- I start by looking at my holdings and those stocks that are signalling "Buy" and that are in an uptrend on multiple periods are added first.
- I look at the most recent (internally generated) scan for new "Buy" candidates that pay dividends. These must meet my "Greenfield" criteria, which I've described numerous times elsewhere in this blog and my newsletters.
- I look at the "Dividend Champions" list from David Fish (Google it). These stocks meet a unique set of criteria, and they only fail one step of my Greenfield criteria (specifically that they have not moved more than 50% in the past year). David's list of dividend stocks is a stellar list and if you invest in dividend-paying stocks you have to use his list as a starting point.
