Canadian Dividend Achievers

Dividend AchieversUpdated June 17, 2017

Dividend Achievers are dividend growth stocks with at least 10 years of dividend growth behind them. It’s the first step in building your master stock list and finding a solid dividend growth stocks.

On the US stock market, there are 3 groups distinctly tracked:

  • Dividend Kings with 50+ years of dividend growth
  • Dividend Aristocrats with 25+ years of dividend growth
  • Dividend Achievers with 10+ years of dividend growth

The primary criteria to be on any of those list is increasing dividend annually. The amount of growth is not important with the filter to be included. One cent will keep you going and that’s why you want to look into the companies further after they make it onto these lists.

On the Canadian front, there is only one list officially tracked but I intend to show who is a Canadian Dividend Achiever.

When investing, you have to narrow down your choice to one stock before making a purchase. The best investors such as Warren Buffett have a process to select stocks. These list can be your first step in narrowing down your selection.
