Dividend Challenger Stocks With Accelerated Growth Researched By Dividend Yield – Stock, Capital, Investment. Dividend Challengers are companies with rising dividends of at least five consecutive years but less than ten years in a row. 190 dividend stocks achieved this goal. Not all of them can follow its dividend growth policy due to a negative business performance. Let’s figure out the good once.

I screened all Challengers with the highest increase in sales and earnings over the recent quarter compared to the same quarter last year. I observed only those stocks with a quarter over quarter sales and earnings per share growth of more than twenty-five percent. Twelve stocks fulfilled these criteria of which four are high yields; eight stocks are recommended to buy. 83 percent of the results are from the basic material and services sector. Especially stocks from the oil and gas pipeline industry are dominant.
