A List of Dividend Growers In The S&P 1500 Index

Standard & Poor's recently assembled a list of dividend growth stocks screened from the S&P 1500 Index (SPSUPX). S&P based the below list on those companies that have paid increasing annual cash dividends for the past ten years and have an actual 2008 and estimated 2009 and 2010 dividend coverage ratio of at least 2.0 (based on street estimates divided by the current 12 month indicated dividend rate).

This list includes large, mid and small capitalization dividend growers. S&P appropriately notes that the below list of stocks are not necessarily buy candidates, but a starting point for additional research.
