Dividends & Income Yields that increase 4% every year

I search, I look, I listen. 

Stocks with dividend yields that beat the 10 year U.S. Treasury are not hard to find.  Even stocks with a minimal 3.5% yield are not hard to find.    Finding a stock, in today’s market that has both a 3.5% yield and a five year history of dividend increases that are greater than 4% per year is the trouble.

I thought I should lower my dividend increase hurdle and then I went grocery shopping and I realized that I will need that 4% increase in a few years.

Stay in touch and as soon as I buy another Dividend Machine in 2014, I will write it up.
