20 Dividend Champs With Highest 10-Year Dividend Growth

If you are a real dividend growth investor, you look more at the pace of the dividend growth than on the yield of the stock.

A stock that is raising dividends very fast will hit the yield of a slow growing high yielder very soon.

I've also predicted in the past that it makes more sense to bet on fast growing stocks that are reasonable priced than on stocks with high yields and decreasing earnings growth.

Today I like to show you some of the 20 stocks from the Dividend Champions list with the fastest dividend growth over the recent decade.

These are the 5 Dividend Champions with fastest 10-Year dividend growth...

  1. Great list. This just goes to show it's not only about finding current high yield rather finding high growth stocks for a portfolio especially if investing for decades out. Thanks for sharing.

    Some of the data are , while true, misleading. For example, NUE has raised it's div by .7% for the last two years (yes, that is point 7). Hard to get excited about that. Of course, it is in a commodity type business (iron).
