There are 51 companies which have increased their dividends for 25 or more consecutive years.
As you know, I love these companies because I find it valuable to measure the “paycheck” they deliver (through dividends) and the “raise” they deliver through dividend increases (helping to beat inflation AND helping investing be fun).
Ben Reynolds over at Sure Dividend (to which I am a subscriber) has just finished his annual (and free) analysis of each dividend aristocrat. You can find the list of all his reviews here. I suggest that if you’re considering adding to your portfolio with any new year’s resolutions that you read Sure Dividend’s free analysis before you do.
