The Dividend Kings are the highest tier of dividend longevity. Each Dividend King has paid increasing dividends for 50 or more consecutive years. A company must have an extremely durable competitive advantage to pay increasing dividends for 5 consecutive decades. There are currently 17 Dividend Kings. Each Dividend King satisfies the primary requirement to be a Dividend Aristocrat (25 years of consecutive dividend increases) twice over.

From 1991 through 2014, the S&P 500 Index has returned 7.9% a year. For every $1 invested in the S&P 500 at the start of 1991, an investor would have $6.23 (all returns in this article include dividends unless stated otherwise). The worst performing of the current dividend kings returned 9.4% a year over the same time period – turning every $1 into $8.68. Out of the 17 current Dividend Kings, all but 1 (Northwest Natural Gas) compounded investor money at 10% or more a year.
