20 Best Yielding Defensive Consumer Dividend Stocks For Long-Term Investors

Consumer Staples are widely appealed to by income investors because they are represented by some of the great blue chip stocks in the market. Companies like Altria, Coca-Cola, Colgate-Palmolive and Procter & Gamble have been paying reliable and growing dividends for the last 40+ years.

These types of companies tend to have high-quality balance sheets and are more resistant to downturns as they produce everyday products that are needed by people regardless of economic conditions. The perception of staples being a safe haven leads to many companies in the sector trading at rich valuations, which can make it difficult to find attractive entry points for new investors. In comparison with the previous sectors that have been highlighted, the consumer staples still have relatively few companies trading below fair value.

Today I would like to introduce some of the best dividend growth stocks from the defensive consumer goods sector.

Attached is a list of the 20 best yielding stocks from the consumer goods sector with a market cap over 2 billion and a dividend growth history of more than 10 consecutive years.

Check out these 10 names...
