I like your list of stocks; even if they are not all today's darlings, they clearly have staying power. Are you a buy and hold investor?
Rising dividends are a strong indicator of good cash flow. IMHO cash flow is a crucial factor in stock selection. Earnings are much easier to manipulate than cash flow. Sure, both are important, but cash is king.
I've never approached stock selection for a rising dividends screen, but it sure makes sense to me. Do you look at anything else, if so what?
PS: Knowing yourself is the most important thing of all. Having the confidence to hold on in bad times makes all the difference.
