I like that 'Corporate Eldorado' thing you got going.
But why a 1% dividend yield? Why not 2% or more?
It seems to me that the companies that pass the other metrics with a higher dividend yield may just be suffering from market sentiment dropping their share price.
Wouldn't that possibly signal a good time to get in on that particular stock?

Also when looking at SCCO they have a positive 5yr avg div, but a negative 5yr growth rate. Shouldn't that knock them off your list?

Now I didn' go through the entire list. I just went through the ones in the article. The ones that intrigued me the most were PG and JCI, each with more than a 10% 5yr div growth rate.
And this is just my gut talking, but PG with the better current yield than JCI might be the better buy at this particular time in the market.

Anyway, I just now have caught up with your board and look forward to the developement of your portfolio. I've seen you here and there on the Fool but I was recently surfing through different message boards and came across 'The Short Bus'! Ha, ha! I still have more than 2000 posts to read through before I'm ever caught up with that board.
When I looked you up, I said "Geez! TMFOrangeblood has a Rising Star port!" and I thought I should check it out more closely.
