dividend-stocksDon’t be fooled into thinking you should buy a stock just because it’s a dividend stock. There are plenty of dividend stocks out there, but only a few are worth owning.

If you’re going to hold dividend stocks in a long term diversified portfolio, then you’ll want to hold dividend stocks that have not only paid dividends, but paid them for a long time and have been consistently increasing them.

These four dividend stocks are solid stocks with a long history of increasing their dividends. That makes them prime candidates for your portfolio.
