Dividend aristocrats are the model of consistency. To be a part of the club, a company must be a member of the S&P 500 index and have increased its annual dividend payment for the last 25 years. Many associate the group with income investing and dividend growth, but dividend aristocrats have beaten the broader market in total returns, notching better results over one, three, five and 10-year periods.
