5 High-Yield Dividend Champs For Yield Hungry Income Investors

For sure, all investors want good returns in order to compensate inflation risks and to cover money for the retirement age. 

Dividend income is a first step to get cash money into your trading accounts but it doesn't help if you get only a one percent yield or so.

Buying High-Yields is also no solution if the stock doesn’t grow and hike future dividends.

Today I would like to introduce some High-Yield stocks that have risen dividends over more than 25 consecutive years.

The only 5 High-Yield Dividend Champions on the market are...

  1. I thought these 5 stocks each had shown 25 years of rising dividends. Yet, the Dividend Payment chart for AT&T shows a reduction in the dividend during 2003.

    As always, I appreciate your blog!

    1. The Altria chart also shows a drop in dividends twice in the past 10 years. So, I guess I don't understand "Today I would like to introduce some High-Yield stocks that have risen dividends over more than 25 consecutive years."

  2. The AT&T data from Yahoo finance shows the dividend dropping after the Oct 8, 2003 dividend payment. AT&T didn't achieve that 2003 level again until 2008.

    1. Well, you are right but take a look at the dividend history of AT&T's investor site: In 2003 they had a different payment rhythm. It's only important that they pay a higher dividend each year.
      Look here:

      2004 11-01-04 10-08-04 $0.3125
      08-02-04 07-10-04 $0.3125
      05-03-04 04-10-04 $0.3125
      02-02-04 01-10-04 $0.3125
      2003 11-03-03 10-10-03 $0.2825
      11-03-03 10-10-03 $0.10
      08-01-03 07-10-03 $0.2825
      08-01-03 07-10-03 $0.10
      05-01-03 04-10-03 $0.2825
      05-01-03 04-10-03 $0.05
      02-03-03 01-10-03 $0.27
      2002 11-01-02 10-10-02 $0.27
      08-01-02 07-10-02 $0.27
      05-01-02 04-10-02 $0.27
