Dividends4Life: Forget Procter & Gamble: Here Are 3 Better Dividend Stocks to Buy

Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) is a dividend champ, having boosted its payout for an incredible 59 consecutive years. However, the consumer-goods giant hasn't impressed income investors lately. Its 3% hike this year was the smallest in recent memory, and its payout ratio is now well above two-thirds of earnings. With those stumbles in mind, we asked a few dividend-loving Motley Fool contributors for a stock that they prefer over P&G right now.

Home Depot (NYSE:HD)has P&G beat on two important income metrics: dividend growth, and payout coverage. As for growth, the retailer's quarterly checks are up by 150% during the past five years thanks to a long-running housing market rebound and efficient business operations. I think Church & Dwight (NYSE:CHD) is a better stock to buy than P&G because it operates in the same industry, but is performing much better this year. PepsiCo (NYSE:PEP) and Procter & Gamble are both dividend aristocrats, which means they have continually increased their dividend payouts every year for at least 25 years.
