Dividend Aristocrats are wonderful income growth stocks. They have raised their dividend payments over a period of more than 25 consecutive years and they are selected by the credit rating agency to be a constituent of the popular S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats index. Exactly 54 companies are part of the index but some of them are very volatile. They have a bigger risk and you can discover this by the beta ratio. Just in times of a weak and down going market, it’s good to have stocks with a very low beta ratio.

Below is a list of the Dividend Aristocrats with the lowest beta ratio of the index. The ratios are between 0.16 and 0.64. Every stock on the list has a performance which represents roughly 20 to 60 percent of the overall market. In a falling market you will have a performance advantage. Here are safest Dividend Aristocrats: Family Dollar Stores (FDO), Consolidated Edison (ED) and Kimberly Clark (KMB).
