5 Dividend Aristocrats Offering Guaranteed Growth

Dividend kings are the ultimate in the dividend hierarchy. Although dividend aristocrats have 25-plus years of consecutive dividend increases, dividend kings have 50-plus years of consecutive dividend increases.

There are only 17 dividend kings. Let's take a look at four high-quality dividend kings for investors who want both growth and safety. 

 One of the four stocks is a utility, while the other three sell slow-changing consumer goods.

The interesting thing about utilities and some consumer goods products is that they have staying power.

Here are the results...
