Dividend Achievers are dividend growth stocks with at least 10 years of dividend growth behind them. It’s the first step in building your master stock list and finding a solid dividend growth stocks.

On the US stock market, there are 3 groups distinctly tracked:

The primary criteria to be on any of those lists is increasing dividend annually. The amount of growth is not important with the filter to be included. One cent will keep you going and that’s why you want to look into the companies further after they make it onto these lists.

Note that you can’t access such dividend data point without a specialized stock screener such as Dividend Snaspshot Screeners.
