  • The 15 years of consecutive dividend increases is more lenient, but my research shows that too strict criteria can hurt one's portfolio rather than help it.
  • This review highlights metrics such as years of consecutive dividend growth, forward yields, dividend growth rates, payout ratios, cash flow, total debt, and more.
