Dividend Kings: 15 Stocks With The Longest Dividend Growth History

Dividend stocks with more than 50 years of consecutive dividend growth originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". As many of you have seen, dividend growth is wonderful tool. A steadily growing passive income from stock market or trading activities is the dream of most of us but nearly all fail.

90% of the investors don’t put their money into long-term growth stocks.

Sure, everybody talks about solid dividend stocks and dividend growth as well as value, but in the end, they became influenced by hotter themes and buy Apple or Research in Motion.

Dividend growth is not a solution trigger for wealth but dividend growth includes some values that help you to avoid the real big mistakes. At least you should realize a long-term return of 8 percent or more.

Today, I like to show you all stocks with the longest history of consecutive dividend growth, also named as Dividend Kings. Those are stocks with more than 50 years of consecutive hikes. Only a small group of 15 companies joined this exclusive class.

I personally own nearly ¼ of the results. Most of the Dividend Kings come from the Dow Jones and they are core investments. Nine of the dividend kings are currently recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:
