10 Dividend Growers Institutional Investors Like

Goldman Sachs is projecting that nearly half of stock returns over the next decade will be from dividends. That's a huge number and based on historically data.

This is certainly good news for dividend investors. Unfortunately the stock market is trading at an elevated price-to-earnings ratio. As a result, total stock market returns are expected to average just 5% a year over the next decade.

If you are looking for more return, you must select the good stocks and eliminate the bad ones. By following the dividend growth rule, dividend growth stocks should perform better than the overall market.

Below are 10 that could fit the dividend growth rule. Which do you like?
