    The best growing Dividend Aristocrats originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Dividend Aristocrats are stocks with a very long dividend growth history. They raised cash distributions to shareholders over a period over more than 25 years in a row and being selected by the well-known credit rating agency Standard & Poor's. Out there are 105 stocks with such a long-term dividend growth buy only 54 are named by S&P.

    As you might know, past performance does not mean a great future performance. You shouldn't think that if your company had a 20 percent growth in the past, your future growth will be in the same range.

    It's more important that you make your own research. Sure it's very hard to discover future growth rates especially if you are not familiar with the company and industry - You only make a desk research.

    But there are also some useful tools like analysts' predictions. I personally look at the demand and supply developments: If there are big entry barriers for new competitors in a market with steady growing consumer demand, there will be a slowing supply growth which will result in rising prices. That's a great perspective for an investor like me.

    However, today I like to highlight all Dividend Aristocrats with a double-digit earnings forecast for the next five years. Nineteen stocks fulfilled these criteria of which two are yielding over the three percent mark; fifteen are currently recommended to buy.

    Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
