Types of Dividend Stocks

Champions Vs. Achievers Vs. Aristocrats Vs. Kings

Dividend Aristocrats

Dividend Aristocrats are stocks that have raised their dividends for the past 25+ consecutive years and are also part of the S&P 500 index. That means these types of companies tend to be large in size but no longer experience massive amounts of growth like they used to. However, they are very much recession-proof (great for hedging your risky plays) and as an investor, you can enjoy growing dividends during the good and bad times.

Dividend Champions

Dividend champions are stocks that have raised their dividend for the past 25+ consecutive years. Unlike dividend aristocrats, dividend champions do not need to be part of the S&P 500, increasing the number of stocks that can be apart of this list.

Dividend Achievers
