Dividends4Life: Small-Caps That Steadily Increase Dividends

Small-Caps That Steadily Increase Dividends

Posted by D4L | Thursday, January 24, 2013 | | 0 comments »

The combination of small-cap stocks with historically increasing dividends is a very powerful investment strategy. So much so, that this pairing spawned its very own index, the Russell 2000 Dividend Achievers Index. To be included in the index, stocks must have at least 10 years of consistent dividend increases, be part of the Russell 2000 Index and have a minimum daily trading volume of 500,000 shares.

Of the 2,000 companies in the Russell 2000, only 63 qualify to be in the Dividend Achiever Index. You can see from the illustration below how the Dividend Achievers Index has outperformed the Russell 2000 Index since 2001. Here are two stocks featured in the small-cap Dividend Achievers Index that I particularly like right now: Watsco Inc. (NYSE: WSO) and Owens & Minor (NYSE: OMI).
