There are many lists you can use to filter out dividend stocks. Some are stringent and others combine multiple metrics. A list is technically what you want it to be according to the filters you want.
There are existing lists managed by some organizations such as the Standard&Poor which manages the Dividend Aristocrats but there are also many lists created by investors.
When you think about it, the TSX60, the S&P500, and the Nasdaq100 are all stock lists matching a specific criteria. When it’s possible, ETFs will track those lists to make it easy for investors.
