Dividends4Life: Most Common Dividend Growth Stocks

Most Common Dividend Growth Stocks

Posted by D4L | Monday, April 16, 2012 | | 0 comments »

The list below contains 39 names. Of my original 35 suggestions, 22 made it to the final list, 13 were dropped, and 17 new ones were added. Of Steve Zoller's 35 names, 25 made it to this list. A couple that did not were MLPs and REITs, which I have excluded from this list, but which of course are in lots of dividend growth portfolios.

Bottom line, I believe that this is a very representative list, given the inherent vagueness of what fits the definition of "most widely held." A few of the names are totally surprising to me. Excelon (EXC) got major support and is included here, even though its last dividend increase was in 2009. Pfizer is on the list, even though it cut its dividend in 2009 and 2010. Many stocks have lower yields than I would accept in my own dividend growth investing. So with no further ado, here is the list.
