a good place to start screening is the S&P Midcap 400
another place is the Mergent's Dividend Achievers, whose membership is made up of companies who have raised their div every year for 10 years to reach the list, and who must continue to raise the div to stay on...
these list are made up of a variety of industries, though there are a lot of banks, reits, retailers among the group...(certainly some have been dropped for dropping or freezing dividends this year)
of the REITs i would look at the Blue (BOB) list at the REIT board, many who, having overachieved, have sunk back into value territory with comparatively substantial discounts/yields
Here's the current "Blue List" (as of March 2008), including the 19 "Bluest of the Blue" REITs:
in other industries, you might consider Accenture, Donaldson, Mocon, Sysco, midcap oil and gas companies, midcap medical device cos, etc.
in this economy there is much volatility, but many opportunities to those patient few who can afford to wait out the mood swings...
best of luck
