Dividend investors LOVE dividend growth.  Key metrics that dividend investors look for are the annual dividend growth rate as well as how often a company raises its dividend.

We went on the hunt for extreme dividend stocks.  We looked for stocks that raised their dividends every year for the past 20 years.  This is no small accomplishment.  Several recessions, including the latest Great Recession, took many companies out of contention since they had to keep their dividends steady, reduce them or even eliminate them altogether.  It's probably not surprising that our list is without, save one stock, any financial firms.

Check out our four part series on Cool Stock Data to see which 16 stocks made the cut and see each stock's amazing dividend growth:
