The Best Of The Best Dividend Aristocrats List - January 2016

The ultimate goal of course is a continually increasing flow of income that might "fill the gap" during retirement.

I order to close that gap, a few investors look for safe stocks. One item to get security is to buy value stocks, receive income or look for growth.

It's a very complex process to find the perfect stock. Some investors make it easier by selecting stocks from popular income and dividend growth indices like the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index. 

Those members changed significantly over the past 100 years. What sense makes it to buy a constituent for after you bought it, the company cut its dividends or run them flat?

Only seven stocks of the 1989 Dividend Aristocrats list are origin.

Here are the true value stocks from the Dividend Aristocrats list...
