Dividend Growth Stocks You Need

Academic evidence shows that dividend stocks outperform. But companies that have raised their dividends do especially well -- and companies that are about to raise their dividends do better still.

Find these the hard way, by sweating through financial statements and guessing who'll raise next, or take Motley Fool Income Investor advisor James Early's suggestion: Simply find consistent raisers and latch on. Your options, Fool, are many: Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG  ) , 3M (NYSE: MMM  ) , and Cincinnati Financial (Nasdaq: CINF  ) have raised payouts for 50 years or more. A newer -- but still consistent -- company is Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE: MMP  ) .
