Dividends4Life: The Most Powerful Dividend Stocks

The Most Powerful Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Saturday, June 02, 2012 | | 0 comments »

Dividend investors are looking for stocks with great dividend payments. One criterion is the history of consecutive rising dividends. Others are fundamentals like margins, debt ratios or even growth rates. I like to discover those dividend stocks with the highest fire power in terms of dividend payments. First, the stock should have a consecutive dividend growth of at least 25 years (Dividend Champions).

Second, the payout ratio should below 30 percent and the debt to equity ratio under 0.3. Stocks with such ratios have enough space to raise dividends when earnings are getting weak. Twelve companies fulfilled these criteria of which nine have a current buy or better rating. Here are three of them: AFLAC Incorporated (NYSE:AFL), Walgreen Company (NYSE:WAG) and Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM).
