When those screeners won't let me sort on the exact parameters that I care about, I simply develop my own databases and spreadsheets and then screen for the information I want. One of my favorite sorting parameters is the estimated one year stock gain for companies I'm interested in. I then add in the projected yield over the upcoming year and get the total expected one year return on investment. It's really eye opening to see the returns that the analysts are estimating.
I often run this particular sort on the list of Dividend Aristocrats so that I'll know which companies have the best expected total return and to invest in as funds become available in my accounts. I intend to put any new money toward companies with the highest expected total one year return and avoid those companies with the lowest expected total one year return.
An increasing dividend, as wonderful as that is, that's offset by a decreasing stock price just doesn't make a lot of sense to me. It's just not how I like to invest. If that's how you like to invest, you might want to take up a different hobby.
