10 Dividend Aristocrats With The Highest Possibility To Grow Dividends At The Fastest Pace

I've discovered many investing strategies and found out that low dividend paying stocks with little debt and high EPS growth have outperformed the market over years.

Dividend growth is an important issue within the investing space. Investors need to look at several fundamental like debt, payout and growth ratios in order to get a feeling of how fast the company can increase its dividends in the future.

Today I've compiled 10 Dividend Aristocrats with a debt-to-equity under 1 as well as 5-year expected earnings per share growth of more than 10 percent. In addition the dividend payout ratio is under 40 percent.

Dividend Aristocrats managed to increase dividends over more than 25 consecutive years. You can finde a full list here: Dividend Aristocrats.

Those criteria are a first sign for investors to expect a growing future dividend. Below are 10 stocks that fulfilled my criteria. Which stocks do you like? Please leave a comment. Thank you!

  1. All great names with several in my own portfolio like GWW, VFC, ITW, BCR. I would love to add more to those positions but current valuation still seems steep for my taste and the yield leaves something to be desired when many other great names are yielding 3%+. Thanks for sharing this list.
