Finding Value: CFRA’s Picks for High-Quality Dividend Aristocrat Stocks in 2024.

Finding Value

The CFRA’s Dividend Aristocrats is an annual list of S&P 500 (SP500) firms that have increased their dividends for at least 25 years in a row. CFRA experts rate these equities four and five stars, respectively.

According to analyst Raymond Jarvis, from January 1926 to December 2023, the S&P 500’s annualized total return was 10.37% each year, with a dividend component accounting for approximately 38.08% of the return.

Howard Silverblatt, senior index analyst for S&P Dow Jones Indices, stated that “for 2024 dividends, the initial projection is positive, but minimal, due to the economy’s uncertainty, the timing of interest rate cuts, and the changing patterns of dividends.”

He also mentioned that the US common dividend increases for 2023 were $65.1 billion, a 21.1% decrease from 2022.
