Dividends4Life: The Dividend Aristocrats: Should They Be A Part Of Your Investing Decision?

Stocks that make up a list known as The Dividend Aristocrats have been profiled in quite a few articles on Seeking Alpha lately. These are companies that, first, need to be members of the S&P 500 Index and secondly, they need to have increased dividends for at least 25 years in a row. Now, while there are stocks that have accomplished this milestone of increasing dividends 25 years in a row, if they are not part of the S&P 500, they are not included in The Dividend Aristocrats.

For those who choose not to purchase individual stocks, there is an ETF that you might want to take a look at. It is called ProShares S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats (NYSEARCA:NOBL). While the ETF was started on 10/9/2013 and does not have a long history, the actual Dividend Aristocrats have been in existence since 1989. Now, that list of stocks that qualify as Dividend Aristocrats has changed over the years. Companies have been added to the list and companies have been deleted.
