Over the past 6 years, I have developed my K.I.S.S. system for investing in dividend growth stocks. The KISS system is a screen that I use each month to identify undervalued dividend growth stocks that I might consider adding to my portfolio. I post my portfolio update each quarter to show all the transactions I make and how the portfolio is doing. My next update will be out in a few days, but the one from the third quarter of 2018 can be found here.
Up until now, I have only shown the stocks I decided to purchase. But I have decided that I'm going to start sending out the list of all the stocks that passed the KISS screen, so that people can see how the screen works, all the stocks that passed the screen and have a good list of some potentially undervalued stocks for them to research.
Having said that, let me stress that nothing I present here is, or should be considered to be, a recommendation to buy any of these stocks. Every investor should do their own research before buying any stock, including the ones presented here.
Before I present the list of passing stocks, let me present the actual screening system I use.
