SHW News and Headlines - Sherwin-Williams Co
The two leading home improvement retailers both released earnings results this week. The Home Depot Inc. (HD) reported Tuesday and produced what I felt was a monster quarter. The company's year-over-year growth rates surpassed what analysts had expected on nearly every metric.
It was rival Lowe's Companies Inc. (LOW) turn to go on Wednesday. As much as I liked Home Depot's quarter, I thought Lowe's was even better. This was the second quarter in a row that I believe Lowe's outdid its main competitor. By almost every measurement, Lowe's was superior to Home Depot.

According to GuruFocus, these stocks have reached their 52-week highs.
Roper reached the 52-week high of $440.90
Roper Technologies Inc. (ROP) is a diversified technology company that operates out of four segments: Application Software, Network Software & Systems, Measurement & Analytical Solutions and Process Technologies. The firm emphasizes acquiring asset-light, cash-generative businesses. Roper then reinvests this excess cash in businesses that yield incrementally higher rates of return. Roper has now rotated a majority of its business from legacy industrial products into technology software in mature, niche markets with large quantities of deferred revenue.

Yesterda, I published an article on GuruFocus reviewing Home Depot’s (HD) first quarter results, which I thought were strong. Today, competitor Lowe’s Companies (LOW) released first quarter results that I feel were even more impressive.
Shares of Lowe’s have underperformed Home Depot for a long time. Home Depot has been the better stock to own over the last year, five years and even 40 years. Due to its leadership position in the home improvement group, Home Depot often trades with a premium price-earnings multiple that the market often doesn’t award to Lowe’s.
While one strong quarter doesn’t reverse this
The following companies have posted positive performances so far this year, as well as over the past several years.
GuruFocus’ positive rating for profitability suggests these companies will continue to report lavish gains in the coming years, eventually beating the overall market. Wall Street supports this expectation, as its sell-side analysts have issued overweight recommendation ratings for each of them.
High profitability means that these companies will very likely continue to pay dividends in the future as well, pushing share prices higher.
Shares of Diageo PLC (DEO) have gained 13% so far this year, 17.2%
In light of China’s announcement on Friday it will postpone tariffs on U.S. agricultural products, five basic materials companies on Joel Greenblatt (Trades, Portfolio)’s Magic Formula Screen with a GuruFocus business predictability rank of at least four stars are Jewett-Cameron Trading Co.

U.S. and Europe stocks advanced Tuesday, after Boris Johnson beat Jeremy Hunt to become Britain’s next prime minister.

As part of my monitoring process, I review a list of dividend increases every week. I usually focus on companies that have managed to boost dividends to shareholders for at least a decade. It looks like this year may be classified as the year of higher dividend growth.
This is because of the new tax law, which went into effect this year. As a result of the lowering of corporate tax rates, companies are increasing the amounts of their regular dividends to shareholders and are initiating new share buyback programs. Some companies are accelerating their dividend increase
U.S. stock market indexes opened in the green on Tuesday. The Standard & Poor's 500 and Dow Jones hit new intraday highs in early trading while the Nasdaq rose 0.05% to reach a record high on the back of economic data, including the 60.8% reached by the ISM manufacturing survey for September which inched up from the August figure.

Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio) has said “good ideas are rare.”Â Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) often talks about the idea of a punch card with just 20 punches on it. Each time you buy a stock – you use up one punch. Buffett believes anyone who invests that way will become a better investor. Is that true, though? Just how many ideas does an investor need, and how much juice can you really squeeze out of just one idea?
The value of a stock idea can come from a combination of four sources:

Dividend history is one of the most straightforward and accurate measures of business quality.
Intuitively, this makes sense – a company must have a significant and durable competitive advantage in order to raise its dividend every year for decades.
Sherwin-Williams Co. (SHW) is one of the most high-quality, well-managed businesses in our stock universe.
The company has increased its annual dividend since 1979, which qualifies it to be a member of the Dividend Aristocrats – elite dividend stocks with at least 25 years of consecutive dividend increases.
The company shows no sign

The Dividend Aristocrats are among the best dividend growth stocks investors can buy. The Dividend Aristocrats is a group ofÂ 51 stocks with at least 25 consecutive years of dividend increases.
Companies with more than two decades of dividend growth must have a strong brand, dominant industry position and durable competitive advantages.
Just because a stock is on the list of Dividend Aristocrats, however, does not automatically make it a buy.
For example, PPG Industries Inc. (PPG) is a Dividend Aristocrat. It has increased its dividend for 44 years in a row,

The Dividend Aristocrats list is a great place to begin looking for high-quality dividend growth stocks.
These stocks represent some of the "best of the best" when it comes to dividend longevity.
The requirements to be a Dividend Aristocrat are:
- Be in the Standard & Poor's 500.
- Have 25-plus consecutive years of dividend increases.
- Meet certain minimum size and liquidity requirements.
Telephone & Data Systems Inc. (TDS) is an interesting omission from the Dividend Aristocrats index.
Prem Watsa (Trades, Portfolio) added more action to his statements that he felt buoyant about markets with the election of Donald Trump, buying his biggest holding in five years during the first quarter, after announcing earlier in the year that he had removed the full hedges on his portfolio that had limited his annual returns.
Fairfax Financial Holdings (TSX:FFH), the Canadian insurance and investment management company Watsa founded in 1985, lost $1.2 billion in 2016, including $1.19 billion on equity hedges and short positions of the S&P 500 and several indexes. Watsa began the hedges in 2010

Dividend investing is one of the most repeatable, surefire methods to build wealth over the long run.
Investing in subsets of the overall stock market with strong dividend histories and promising growth prospects has been proven to boost the return of investment portfolios.
One example is the Dividend Aristocrats – stocks with 25-plus years of consecutive dividend increases. The Standard & Poor's 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index has handily outperformed the S&P 500.
Over the past 10 years, the Dividend

As dividend growth investors, it is often easy to get caught up in the trap of "chasing yield" – investing in the highest-yielding stocks without regard to any other financial metrics.
However, this is not always the best approach.
Chasing yield can result in investing in companies that are paying unsustainable dividends, which can often lead to one or more dividend cuts.
Dividend cuts are one of the worst things that can happen to a dividend growth investor.
They are poorly received by the market in general and seen as a sign of
