11 Dividend Aristocrats With Yields Over 4 Percent

When it comes to high-yield stocks, many big payouts are too good to be true.

Many battered companies feature sky-high yields, but that’s simply a product of math — if dividend yield is the payout divided by the stock price, and that stock price gets smaller, the yield will naturally get bigger.

The same can’t be said about dividend aristocrats — stocks with enough financial stability that they’ve been able to raise dividends for at least 25 consecutive years.

That’s as much proof as you can get that a company knows how to handle its cash, and how to spend it on investors, without putting its business in danger.

Of course, many dividend aristocrats still feature piddling yields — some lower than 1%. What’s more enticing to income investors is a dividend aristocrat that not only grows its payouts, but also offers a substantially high yield. 

So, today we’ll be looking at such dividend aristocrats that are recording decades of dividend growth while also yielding at least 4%.

These are the results:
