Dividends4Life: The Top 10 Dividend Aristocrat Stocks for High Yields

“Dividend aristocrat” stocks are companies that have consistently increased their dividends for at least 25 years. Over the long term, dividend investing is a great method of receiving a regular income, earning money back from the initial investment that was made. The biggest benefit of aristocrat stocks is that the dividend is growing on a consistent basis, which means that the capital is returned to shareholders quicker when compared to a steady dividend-paying stock over the same period. Below is a list I have compiled of the top 10 aristocrat stocks that should be considered for an investment for 2017 and into the future...

These are quality Fortune 500 companies that have long track records of consistent dividend growth: PepsiCo Inc. (NYSE:PEP), AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T), Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT), Procter & Gamble Co (NYSE:PG), Kimberly Clark Corp (NYSE:KMB), Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT), 3M Co. (NYSE:MMM), Emerson Electric Co. (NYSE:EMR), Abbott Laboratories (NYSE:ABT) and Lowe’s Companies Inc. (NYSE:LOW). These 10 aristocrat stocks should be considered as an investment for a few reasons. The first is their long histories of paying a growing dividend. This also provides evidence that the company is shareholder-friendly.
