Dividend Aristocrats and The Money Madam's Dividend Strategy

January 20, 2014

I just read a Seeking Alpha Article about nine dividend companies for yield and growth. (click to read article)
I applied my four Dividend Machine Criteria and here is what I found.

On a pass/fail basis we have seven that fail the Dividend Machine criteria and two that are close.

Take a look at the data.

If I were going to buy something that is not quite a Dividend Machine due to a yield that is too low, I would go with the stock that the greatest dividend increase over the past five years.

And those companies are: MCD, CVX, KMB, PG, and KO
