The Top Yielder From The S&P MidCap 400 Dividend Aristocrats Index

Dividends are a good income source for passive investors who like to retire earlier. A great source of stocks with a long history of sustainable and growing dividends can be found within the Dividend Aristocrats family.

I've written many articles about those stocks, which are very popular. Today I like to show the highest yielding stocks from the S&P MidCap 400 Dividend Aristocrats Index. Each stock has increased its annual dividend 15 or more consecutive years.
