Dividend Stock Filter Criteria

In our routine dividend stock filtering for www.RationalRisk.com, we typically begin with these minimum quantitative criteria, to which we subsequently add other subjective independent analyst research opinions, and performance criteria based on historical total return, volatility and maximum draw-downs.  This is our initial quantitative screen:
