These 15 Stocks Could Double Their Dividends

Dividend growth is more important than yield, that's a major issue from the dividend growth investing space.

The reason is simple, a fast growing stock that reinvest all of their generated money, could overtake every higher yielding and slow growing stock in a few years.


Today I like to show you 15 Dividend Achievers, stocks with a history of growing dividends of more than 10 years without a break, that have potential to double their dividends.

My criteria:
- Debt-to-equity of less than 0.2
- Low payout ratio under 30%
- positive earnings growth over 5% yearly

Here are my favorites...
