Dividends4Life: Periodic Table of Dividend Contenders

Periodic Table of Dividend Contenders

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, August 03, 2011 | | 0 comments »

One usually associates “dividend-growth” stocks with lower yields. But 23 stocks in the table have yields of 5% or more and dividend-growth streaks of 10 years or more. For four of these stocks, the lowest annual growth rate has been 5% or more. It is often misleading to characterize stocks as either dividend growth or high yield. Some stocks offer both. One stock stands out for its combination of current yield and DGR. Novartis (NVS) has a current yield of 3.85% and its worst DGR has been 6.3% over 10 years. Its most recent increase (in February) was 18%.

A compilation such as this should only be used as a starting point for investing ideas. Complete due diligence would take many more factors into account. Considerations such as Dividends in Danger or scary valuation metrics need to be considered. Many dividend investors look hard at the payout ratio, and most seek diversification across sectors or industries.
