Dividend Kings are S&P 500 companies who have increased their dividend for 50+ consecutive years. That is an amazing record of consistency. That is why there are only 20 companies that qualify for the 2017 Dividend Kings List.

Think about it; 50 years is a long time. Booms and busts, inflation and deflation, high interest rates and low interest rates; these companies have survived and prospered through it all. In other words, you have at least found a company that has been able to move forward over many different environments and cycles.

There are 20 Companies on the 2017 Dividend Kings List:

A Word of Caution About the Dividend Kings

Humans, and investors in particular, tend to think in a linear fashion. In other words, we view the past and assume it will continue without sufficient analysis of what could change.

Just because a company has increased its dividend for 50 years does not mean it will continue forever. Companies frequently stumble and drop off dividend lists. In addition these stocks carry higher than average valuations most of the time. After all, they are Dividend Kings!

My point is you shouldn’t just take a list and stop there. We need to dig in and analyze the companies. Using a quantitative investment tool such as the Arbor Dividend Analyzer allows investors to compare stocks without letting emotions or behavioral biases influence their choices in picking stocks. We want to find the stocks that offer a bargain (or at least a fair) price for the value of the company.

I like to segment analysis into 3 parts: Profitability & Growth, Safety, and Valuation. The Dividend Value Builder Newsletter & Blog uses 30+ quantitative and qualitative metrics that are important for determining the value of companies. Then we segment analysis into three scores; Profitability & Growth, Safety, and Valuation. This provides an efficient approach to evaluating and comparing stocks.
