4 Dividend Achievers With The Strongest Recommendation At The Market

Dividend Achievers With Strong Buy Rating Researched By “long-term-investments.blogspot.com. Dividend Achievers stocks are very interesting in terms of wealth construction due to a continuous dividend growth. Such stocks raised dividends over a period of more than 10 consecutive years. At the markets are 187 companies available for trade that fulfilled these dividend growth criteria but not all have a good rating.

I screened the investment category by the highest recommendation rating, a strong buy. Only four companies have such a great recommendation of which one has a yield over three percent. But growth is more important than yield.


Here are my favorite stocks:
