Dividends4Life: The 4 Best Dividend Aristocrats to Buy Now

The 4 Best Dividend Aristocrats to Buy Now

Posted by D4L | Thursday, September 24, 2020 | 0 comments »

There are 65 so-called “dividend aristocrats,” which is the name given to companies that have managed to increase their dividends for 25 consecutive years. But how would an investor choose the best dividend aristocrats for their portfolio? And because qualifying as an aristocrat means increasing the company’s dividend for at least 25 consecutive years, the group is limited to those with minimal cyclical exposure. These stocks have enough strength to manage through the dot-com bust and the financial crisis, let alone the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The combination of index inclusion and dividend increases makes dividend aristocrats attractive names. But in looking at the 65 companies, there’s a fairly obvious split. The dividend aristocrats whose shares are cheap seem cheap for good reason. So as far as dividend aristocrats go, it’s worth trying to split the difference to find the best dividend aristocrats to buy. This list has two cheap names and two expensive ones that look particularly attractive at the moment. They are: Abbott Laboratories (NYSE:ABT), Ross Stores (NASDAQ:ROST), PepsiCo (NASDAQ:PEP) and V.F. Corporation (NYSE:VFC).
