The Most Popular Dividend Stock for 2017?
You can’t look at dividend stocks without hearing about the Dividend Aristocrats.
What is this elite group?
It’s a list of Dividend paying stocks that are part of the S&P 500, and have not only paid, but raised, their dividend every year for the last 25 years!
Of course there are a few other things like trading volumes and other market related factors that go into adding stocks to this elite list.
Bottom line, these are the “best of the best” when it comes to dividend stocks.
So, you know they’re good… why not just by these stocks and call it a day?
The answer is simple… while yes, these are some of the strongest companies in the world, they are not necessary the fastest growing, or pay the highest dividends…
For example, I found an very interesting stat: “37 of the 50 (74%) Dividend Aristocrats are one of the top 3 largest companies in their industries.”
Great news when you want stability… but it tends to put a lid on the growth trajectory.
The other issue… there’s no guarantee that every dividend aristocrat stock today will continue to be a dividend aristocrat tomorrow.
Back in 2009 when we went through the great recession, four big banks (including Bank of America) and an insurance company fell from the vaulted ranks of dividend aristocrats.
So, they are safe, but far from guaranteed!
As you might know, Warren Buffett is a big fan of dividend aristocrats.
You see, a big chunk of his portfolio is invested in them… and the big 4 are, The Coca-Cola Company (KO), Procter & Gamble Company (PG), Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT), and AT&T, Inc. (T).
Now that’s just 4 of the 50 Dividend Aristocrats out there. Could one of them be the most popular dividend stock?
Or maybe the best dividend stock of 2017?
Instead of going through each and every one of the 50 aristocrats, I want to pick one that I like and explain why.
And I want to pick a stock many people overlook.
You see, a ton of people know Walmart, and Coke, and AT&T…
But the stock I selected I bet you might not have heard of.
The company is over 100 years old and producing products for the healthcare industry.
While the dividend is low… the stock has more than doubled in the last few years… And I believe the stock will continue rocketing higher… making it one of the most exciting dividend investments in not only 2016, but 2017 too!
