    The Best Yielding Dividend Aristocrats List Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Dividend Aristocrats are stocks that have raised dividends over a period of more than 25 consecutive years and being part of the S&P500 Dividend Aristocrats Index. The index summarizes 51 companies large cap, blue chip companies within the S&P 500 that have followed a policy of increasing dividends every year for at least 25 consecutive years.

    I screened all Dividend Aristocrats by the best yields. 47 stocks yielding over one percent, 39 exceeding the 2 percent mark and 17 stocks have a yield over three percent. The index has only three high yields and six companies with a yield over four percent. The low yields are compensated by a higher growth in dividend payments and lower stock volatility. Below are the stocks with a yield over three percent.
