You should consider WMT, if you are interested in dividend growth, not just initial dividend yield which is around 2.5%. Over the last 5 yrs dividend growth is 16%. At this rate of growth dividend will double in 5 years. And the pay out ratio is a very manageable 32%.

And they just announced an 18% dividend hike to $1.88/yr. EPS forecast is $5.20 - $5.40, so payout ratio at midpoint of $5.30 will be 35%.
