Dividend Aristocrats With Expected Dividend Hikes

Rely on These Stocks for Higher Dividends By Fool. Many Dividend Aristocrats make sure to raise dividends early each year in order to get it out of the way and leave no doubt about the continuation of their streaks. But you'll find plenty of stocks that tend to wait until later in the year to make their increases.

In order to try to find some likely candidates for dividend increases before they announce higher payouts, I took a look at Dividend Aristocrats that haven't yet made dividend hikes in 2011. Here are the stocks I found:

Aflac (NYSE: AFL  )
