5 Buy Rated Dividend Stocks With Fast Rising Payment Outputs

The U.S. interest rates are at historic lows and, at best, only modest interest rate increases can be expected next year. As such, there is hardly any option for income investors. 

With Bonds and Treasury bills yielding less than 2% over a 1-5 year time horizon, stocks with assured dividend growth are perhaps one of the few bright spots for investors. 

As even the most imprudent investor knows, dividend stocks are historically less volatile than non-dividend stocks and are proven outperformers over the long term. 

These stocks are a safe bet to create wealth as dividends generally act as a hedge against economic uncertainty. Moreover, these stocks provide downside protection by offering sizable yields on a regular basis. 

A lot of investors consider dividend-paying companies as "boring." Weighed against the high-flying small cap companies, whose volatility seems to excite them, dividend-paying stocks are typically more mature and conventional. Although this may be uninteresting for some, the combination of a consistent dividend payout and dividend growth can be something to get excited about.

Below I've attached some good looking stocks that have grown dividends in the recent 5 years by more than 35 percent and having a current strong buy or buy rating.
