    Wall Street was in a great mood on Thursday, as favorable news on multiple fronts sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average to its first record close in eight months. Major benchmarks were generally up 1% after market participants responded to strong economic data on jobless claims, and rising optimism about the potential for a peaceful solution to the tariff-laden trade environment helped many Dow components disproportionately. However, some companies still had to deal with individual challenges that kept them from joining the rally. Stitch Fix (NASDAQ:SFIX), Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN), and Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Dividend growth investing can be a great way to boost your passive income over time. To do it right, though, you have to find stocks that can both grow their dividends faster than inflation and have sustainable free cash flows for the long haul.

Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD), a blue chip biotech stock, meets both of these critical criteria. Even so, this top biotech is rarely considered purely for its prospects as a dividend growth stock. The reason? Gilead only started doling out a dividend approximately three years ago this month. As a result, the company has yet to shed its well-earned image as a top growth stock within the broader investing community.

Image Source: Getty Images.

However, I think this underappreciated dividend growth play is worth adding to your portfolio right now. Here’s why.

Gilead’s risks are overstated

There are two big knocks against Gilead as a dividend growth stock. First off, the company’s hepatitis C franchise has literally imploded since hitting a high watermark in late 2015. Gilead has thus had to rely on its core HIV franchise to pick up the slack, and that strategy has so far failed to keep the company’s top line moving in the right direction. Despite several new product launches in HIV, the biotech’s top line remains on track to drop by a disastrous 20.3% this year.
