I feel like there has been too much focus in this thread on past growth and not enough on future. I'm less interested to know which stocks have boosted their dividend each of the last 2,000 years than I am which ones might for the next 2,000. I own JNJ, PFE, XOM, PG; but I'm also heavy into DRL, KSWS, KMP, LOW, and MSFT hoping that they will be on the 20 year list in about 15 years. I think the screen that Yielder just ran is equally as useful as a list of stocks who have hiked their dividends for 30 or pick-your-number-but-a-really-long-time years. When you get down to it, one of the core principles of my investment strategy is finding dividend growers; only earlier in the curve than Dow 30 types.

Even though I don't post often here, I dig the thoughts and dialogue on this board.
