Companies that not only tend to beat the market, but pay you as they do.

Curated by The Motley Fool


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. Within this group of quality companies, our analysts like 10 in particular for investors looking for steady stable income (and some growth too!).
