The S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index is an index created by the well-known credit rating agency Standard & Poor’s. The index measures the performance of large cap, blue chip companies within the S&P 500 that have followed a policy of increasing dividends every year for at least 25 consecutive years. In total, 51 companies are subject of the index and can be covered by several exchange traded funds (ETFs). If you have bit cash on your trading account, you don’t need to look for a cheap index copy via ETF.

You can buy directly some of these wonderful dividend growth stocks for a $1 trading fee. Below is a nice overview of the 20 best-yielding Dividend Aristocrats of which 10 are currently recommended to buy. Here are my favorite stocks: McDonald's (MCD), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Air Products & Chemicals (APD).
