Why Not Invest In A High-Yield Dividend Achievers Portfolio?

Do you want to put your money to work? Then it needs to do more than just sit in a bank account or get traded in and out of stocks. 

Your money needs to get you paid, and the way to do that is through high-dividend stocks. Now, doing that isn't as easy as going out and buying the first high payer you can get your hands on. There are some characteristics to look for that will ensure you'll continue to get paid for years to come. 

Let's look at why an individual investor should be buying high-dividend stocks, and what you need to seek out and what to avoid when picking these stocks for your portfolio.

In order to avoid big investing mistakes, investors should focus on stocks with a higher market capitalization, a broader diversified business model which is also less volatile and finally a constantly growing business. The latest point makes it easier for the company to hike dividends in the future. For income investors like me and you, it is a very essential point.

However, today I like to introduce those dividend growth stocks that offer most of the above mentioned criteria. I like to show you only Dividend Achievers, stocks that have grown dividends over 10+ years without a break.

Attached is a list of the best yielding Dividend Achievers. Which do you like?
