2012 Dividend Aristocrats

Dividend aristocrats are S&P 500 companies that have increased dividends for 25 years in a row.  There are 50 companies on the list.  A listing, including number of years dividends have increased for each company, has been produced by Dividend Growth Investor.  Note that near the bottom of the post is a listing for so-called "Dividend Champions."  This is a broader listing with less stringent capitalization requirements.

These lists are excellent starting points for those building a portfolio to create a specific income stream as well as those just looking to pick up a little yield.
