The rising stock market has created fewer opportunities to find high yielding dividend stocks that are likely to continue increasing dividend payments. There are only 4 businesses that have dividend yields greater than 5% combined with 25+ years of consecutive dividend increases.

AT&T (T) - 5.11% Yield, 30 consecutive years of dividend increases. Universal Health Trust (UHT) - 5.86% Yield, 27 consecutive years of dividend increases. HCP, Inc. (HCP) - 5.32% Yield, 29 consecutive years of dividend increases. Mercury General (MCY) - 5.26% Yield, 28 consecutive years of dividend increases. These businesses have managed to grow their dividend payments without interruption for at least 2.5 decades. A long track record of success shows evidence of a competitive advantage. Demanding a successful history from your high yielding stocks helps insulate your investments from falling dividends, which defeat the purpose of high yield investing.
