Dividend Achievers With A Strong Buy Rating

Analysts often have a good sense about the development of stocks due to their intensive research related to the company.

Not all analysts predict the correct economic development but they do a very good basic desk research and they have conversations with the management teams of the company, so not many people a as good informed as analysts.


Today I've listed all stocks with more than 10 years of consecutive dividend growth (Dividend Achievers) and a strong buy rating. Only nine companies have received the highest buy rating by analysts. Six of them are listed on the technology stock exchange NASDAQ.

Only four firms have a market capitalization over one billion US-Dollar. Keep in mind that those stocks also contain a higher risk for invvestors.

The only 9 Dividend Achievers with a strong buy rating are....
