Below is a screen I ran this morning on dividend stocks. This screen seeks to identify quality companies that have a history of good dividend growth and that also have an additional kicker: their shares are sporting above-average yields. All four are ranked A or better by Standard & Poor's Investor service. All four have grown their dividends at double digits over the last 5 years.
