Summary and Conclusions

Stryker is my dividend growth stock value idea of the week. At its current quotation, Stryker is trading at what currently appears to be a compelling valuation.

Additionally, the opportunity for long-term dividend growth appears well-defined. Consequently, I believe this is an attractive candidate worthy of further due diligence.
