Low Risk Stocks for Dividend Growth Investors

We began our search for stocks with dividends that have advanced at a compounded annual rate of at least 7% over the last five years. Similarly, we narrowed the list to equities with projected annual dividend growth rates of at least 7% over the next three to five years. We also set a minimum estimated yield for the year ahead of 3.0%, which is 100 basis points (100 basis points equals one percentage point) higher than the current median for all dividend-paying stocks under our review.
