  1. Hi Tom,

    That is one nice list!
    Fortunately for me, it feels like you're summing up my entire portfolio..

    I'm long T, CVX, MCD & PG. A few of the others, like ED & XOM are still on my watchlist.

    Don't you think you should add growth to your list of Dividend Aristocrats?
    For example, T has a high yield, but a very poor growth history.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Best wishes, DfS
