3 Different Yield Tables Of The Highest Yielding Dividend Aristocrats

The S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index has greatly outperformed the broader S&P 500 Index over the past 10 years, and includes many quality companies that raise their payouts year after year. 

But S&P Dow Jones Indices has a High-Yield Dividend Aristocrats Index that can help you find even higher-yielding stocks. 

Most financial-media news is geared toward current events that can affect stock prices over the short term. But many investors are much more concerned with longer-term strategies for growth or income.





I'm a strong believer in long-term value creation though growth and job creation. Only a growing company with a healthy business that works over decades and has also a strategic plan has potential to create a solid return for us.

These are the 10 highest yielding Dividend Aristocrats...
