Many investors are familiar with the Dividend Aristocrats Index that consists of companies in the S&P 500 Index that have increased their dividend payouts to shareholders every year for the last 25 years. 

A smaller elite group of these companies have come to be known as “Dividend Kings”, generally used to describe stocks that have had 50 years of consecutive dividend increases. 

A business that can not only adapt to ever-changing business and economic conditions, but also manage to continue to grow its dividend payment for 50 consecutive years may imply a durable competitive advantage and management that is committed to returning capital to shareholders. Today, there are just 16 Dividend Kings. Attached is a nice list of them, check it out.

There are a fair number of studies showing that Dividend Kings have historically held up better during market downturns, riding out bear markets better than other stocks and also have recovered faster. It's important to care for you adequate share of Dividend Kings in your portfolio, especially in volatile times.

My favorite picks are Procter, Genuine Parts, 3M, Dover, Nordson and Lowe's. Those stocks should grow earnings while the forward P/E is not too far away from normal. Do you agree with me? - Check the Dividend Kings here: 17 Dividend Kings And Which To Own Now...  [more]



The Best Technology Dividend Growth Picks Now!

September 11, 2015 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: MSFT , IBM , T

As dividend growth investor, you have a large field to decide where to put your money.
Recently, I’ve introduced a few dividend growth picks from the consumer goods sector with the highest dividend yields. 

Today I would like to continue with stocks from the technology sector.
The tech sector was no good field in the past to search for long-term dividend growers. Only old techs like IBM, Oracle, or Microsoft have paid dividends for a decade and grown them over the same period.
The reason was also simple. Technology offers the opportunity to benefit from game changers, companies that develop a new system that became a new standard.
However, today, there are 17 higher capitalized stocks with a consecutive dividend growth history of more than 10 years. Attached, you can find a full list of the results.

These are the top picks in detail...

AT&T -- Yield: 5.67%  [more]



20 Best Yielding Defensive Consumer Dividend Stocks For Long-Term Investors

September 09, 2015 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: MO , PG , KO

Consumer Staples are widely appealed to by income investors because they are represented by some of the great blue chip stocks in the market. Companies like Altria, Coca-Cola, Colgate-Palmolive and Procter & Gamble have been paying reliable and growing dividends for the last 40+ years.

These types of companies tend to have high-quality balance sheets and are more resistant to downturns as they produce everyday products that are needed by people regardless of economic conditions. The perception of staples being a safe haven leads to many companies in the sector trading at rich valuations, which can make it difficult to find attractive entry points for new investors. In comparison with the previous sectors that have been highlighted, the consumer staples still have relatively few companies trading below fair value.

Today I would like to introduce some of the best dividend growth stocks from the defensive consumer goods sector.
