6 Dividend Growth Stocks With A Big Footprint And Inimitable Business

Dividend investing is a large field for investors who seek for a return. People with focus on passive and regular income are the main target group for this topic.

In my view there are too many speculators on the market who don't understand the philosophy of dividend growth investing.

They like to make money fast with high momentum stocks or they like to make a capital gain by trading shares within a day or a week.

Those strategies could work but it’s in my view like a lottery because no one has a crystal ball to see how the stock prices develop in the next days. It's like gambling of which I have no plan how it works.

These are 3 big myths of dividend investing who let investors stay away from the dividend investing space:

1. Only high dividends are good dividends

2. Dividends don't matter because of their low yields

3. Dividends are not stable

Those thoughts could sometimes be right but often it is not true.

I'm a long-term investor and hope you are too. I do look at fundamentals and at the business strength and brand awareness of the company as well.

I like to invest in long-term growing stocks with a big and strong footprint in several industries. That's one of my key philosophies which helped me to avoid big risks. Below are six big names with such a big footprint.

All of the stocks have a long-term growth track record and they are classified as Dividend Aristocrats or Champions.

I Hope you could get some inspirations by reading my articles and subscribe to my blog. I try to help normal investors like you, everything for free.
