8 Impressive Dividend Aristocrats With Good Yields For 2014

The year 2014 recently started and all investors must place their bets for the full year. Of course, stock investing is no game and each investor can buy and sell stocks each day but long-term orientated investors have a longer orientated view. They like to invest money into growing stocks with solid fundamentals. 

Due to corporate growth, higher sales and earnings will hike the company at a new level and investors should benefit from these effects by receiving higher dividends.
One index that covers stocks with the longest history in rising dividends is the Dividend Aristocrats Index. Members of the index have achieved to hike its payments to shareholders over more than 25 consecutive years. That's a great number in my view.
