Dividend Aristocrats In The Sensitive Sectors

There are currently 65 dividend growth stocks in the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index, a list of S&P 500 companies that have increased their dividends for at least 25 consecutive years. 

Recently, I used DVK Quality Snapshots and tie-breaking metrics to rank all 65 Dividend Aristocrats and presented 21 categorized as defensive stocks. 

This article presents 20 additional Dividend Aristocrats, this time from the sensitive sectors: Communication Services, Energy, Industrials, and Information Technology.

An upcoming article will present the remaining 24 Dividend Aristocrats, considered to be cyclical stocks. 

This article is the second in a series that covers the Dividend Aristocrats, a list of S&P 500 companies that have increased their dividends for at least 25 consecutive years. Currently, there are 65 Dividend Aristocrats. 

The first article covered 21 Dividend Aristocrats in the Defensive Sectors (Consumer Staples, Health Care, and Utilities). 

Another class of sectors that are not severely impacted by economic downturns is the sensitive sectors: Communication Services, Energy, Industrials, and Information Technology. Companies in these sectors are not immune to poor economic conditions, but they are not as severely impacted by economic downturns as stocks in the cyclical sectors, which I'll cover in a future article.
