3 Different Yield Tables Of The Highest Yielding Dividend Aristocrats

The S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index has greatly outperformed the broader S&P 500 Index over the past 10 years, and includes many quality companies that raise their payouts year after year. 

But S&P Dow Jones Indices has a High-Yield Dividend Aristocrats Index that can help you find even higher-yielding stocks. 

Most financial-media news is geared toward current events that can affect stock prices over the short term. But many investors are much more concerned with longer-term strategies for growth or income.

I'm a strong believer in long-term value creation though growth and job creation. Only a growing company with a healthy business that works over decades and has also a strategic plan has potential to create a solid return for us.

These are the 10 highest yielding Dividend Aristocrats...

These Stocks Are The Favorite Picks From The Best Asset Managers

Below is a list of stock picks from the best equity managers of the recent quarter. The list summarizes a few dividend growers like Oracle, Walgreen or Johnson & Johnson.

34 Dividend Growth Stocks To Consider When Everthing Is Expensive On The Market

With the S&P 500 once again in negative territory for the year, companies of all sizes have seen their share prices decline.

When a stock that pays a strong dividend goes down, it has the happy effect of pushing its dividend yield even higher, which can create a nice buying opportunity for long-term investors who want to add income to their portfolio.

Attached I've compiled a list of great dividend growth stocks that might look attractive despite the market has reached a hot valuation level.

Each of the results have predicted earnings multiples of less than 15 on double-digit earnings growth rates, a debt-to-equity ratio under 1, and a Beta less than the overall market as well.

Exactly 34 companies match my criteria. Attached you can find the full results. The first table shows all Dividend Champs and Contenders. Those stocks have raised dividends over a period of more than 10 consecutive years. 

The second table shows the results from the Dividend Challengers List. Each of the results matched the above mentioned criteria and has grown dividends over 5 to 10 years.

Here are the tables:

13 High-Yield Large Caps From The S&P 500 Stock Index

Despite all the hand-wringing over the beginning of the Federal Reserve interest rate increases, the fact of the matter is they will start small, stay small and happen at a very slow pace. 

In fact, most Wall Street strategists predict that by the end of 2017, the fed funds rate will only be 2% at the very most. It could be even lower if economic growth slows down between now and then. 

With that scenario very likely, solid stocks with a big yield will remain in demand. I screened the S&P 500 index for large cap, blue chip stocks that paid a 5% dividend. 

As of now, 13 stocks pay such a high yield of which 5 have also a low forward P/E and 8 a buy or better rating.

A major worry for many yield-hungry investors is that when the Federal Reserve begins raising the federal funds rate, market prices for any yield-producing investment can come under pressure. 

When interest rates rise, the value of an existing bond or preferred stock must adjust itself lower so it has the same yield as a similarly rated new security.

A good advice from me is to avoid stocks with high debt leverage like REITs. Those stocks are living from an interest margin that could be destroyed.

These 14 Promising Income Stocks Should Grow Earnings Over 10% Yearly

Investors often pick between growth and income. Why limit yourself? I sit here and watch my market screener, trying to find the next stock that could deliver me a good return. 

I'm a strong believer in growth and hope that dividends could bring me some risk compensation. Today I've created a forward orientated screen for U.S. domiciled stocks.
