9 Potential Dividend Aristocrats You Need To Know

Long term dividend growth investing is a popular investing strategy. Investors are looking for stocks with a long dividend history and keep an eye on those companies with raising dividends.

There’s an elite sub-group of S&P 1500 stocks known as “Dividend Aristocrats” which have a distinguishing factor that income growth investors find very attractive: a history of consistently increasing dividends every year for at least 20 consecutive years.

And interestingly enough, for the last 10 years, this elite group has out-performed both the S&P 1500 and the benchmark S&P 500.

The lag of current Dividend Aristocrats is that they have shown a good past performance but this does not mean that they will perform in the future well.

In addition Dividend Aristocrats are very expensive due to the high quality they offer. That's in my view a good reason for looking into the second level.

Attached you will find 10 companies identified as “future dividend aristocrats contenders,” these being members of the S&P 1500 and not that many years away from showing the required two decades of dividend growth.

These are the results...
