The Highest Yielding Dividend Champions, Challengers and Contenders – Seeking Alpha

The Highest Yielding Dividend Champions, Challengers and Contenders – Seeking Alpha: “Sometimes I wonder whether the common practice of dividing dividend stocks into two groups – high yield and dividend-growth – doesn’t set up a false dichotomy. The implications are that high-yield stocks do not grow their dividends, and stocks that grow their dividends have low yields. Neither generalization is true.
The purpose of this article is to identify those stocks that offer both high yield and dividend growth. The qualification for “high yield” is a projected yield of 5% or more. The qualification for “dividend growth” is residence on David Fish’s most recent Dividend Champions document. The document – affectionately known as CCC – includes Champions (25 straight years of dividend growth or more), Challengers (10 years) and Contenders (5 years).”
