5 Dividend Aristocrats To Buy Now

Julie C - Monday, March 12, 2012

. . . .

Standard & Poor's offers an index titled the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index. Currently the index comprises 51 large cap, blue chip companies within the S&P 500 that have increased their dividend every year for at least 25 consecutive years. One of differentiating factors between the Dividend Aristocrats versus David Fish's Dividend Champions is that all Aristocrats are part of the S&P 500, therefore, there are only 51 Aristocrats versus 103 Champions.

The five companies reviewed in this article all represent high-quality companies that appear to be very attractively valued at today's levels. In addition to having a long record of increasing their dividend every year for at least 25 consecutive years, each of these selections offers the opportunity for double-digit growth earnings growth, and therefore, growth of both capital and dividend income based on consensus analyst expectations.
