The companies with the best dividend growth prospects based on current share price, current franked yield and five year earnings growth forecast. Click on the company name or code to view more detailed information and dividend history.
This is a list of dividend growth share investment prospects based on publically available fundamental data.
The dividend growth stocks are selected based on the current franked dividend – projected forward 5 years based on a current 5 year growth forecast.
The companies must have a history of positive dividend growth and positive growth prospects for the next 5 year period. This is to exclude stocks that may be high yielding but have poor prospects going forward (aka ‘a dividend trap’).
Finally, for the dividend to be sustainable, an arbitrary dividend cover of at least 1.67 is required.
Note that any special dividends are included in annual dividend and as these are unlikely to be recurring, care should be taken to discount their impact. For example, Wesfarmers declared a $2 dividend in February 2019 included a $1 special dividend.
