U.S. stocks with dividend history are focus for Credit Suisse

Buying shares of U.S. companies with a history of raising dividends may help investors limit the risk of higher interest rates next year, according to Andrew Garthwaite, a global strategist at Credit Suisse Group AG. He cited the S&P 500 Index’s “dividend aristocrats,” which have increased payouts for 25 years in a row or longer, in a report Wednesday. S&P’s index of the aristocrats is valued as if the 10-year Treasury note yielded 2.5%, Garthwaite wrote. The 10-year yield has been below 2.5% since May and stood at 1.77% yesterday.
