One of the most awesomest things about investing is not only watching your money grow but also receiving cash dividends for being an investor. You’re investing, it’s only right that you get a piece of the pie!

Almost 80% of the S&P 500 companies pay out some form of dividend, usually on a quarterly basis. That means near 380 companies will pay oyu a dividend just for being a shareholder. You deserver it but which ones do you choose? There are literally so many.

One of the easiest places to start in your research is to look at the Dividend Aristocrats! They are an awesome group of stocks, generally seen as blue chip stocks, that have been consistently profitable and stable for long periods of time. The best part? They’ve been paying annual dividends consistently for 25 years or more and if that wasn’t awesome enough, they’ve also been increasing their dividends consecutively!

And some of these companies have been doing this for far more than 25 years! So not only do you get paid, you get paid more and more as the year go by. If that’s not amazing, I don’t know what is!

Here are the groups where I start my research:

Dividend Achievers: 10+ years of more of consistent and increasing dividends

Dividend Aristocrats: 25+ years or more of consistent and increasing dividends.

Dividend Kings: 50+ years or more of consistent and increasing dividends.

Below is a current list Updated December 2020 of the Dividend Aristocrats!
