European Dividend Aristocrats: 41 Top-Flight International Dividend Stocks
America's stock market ran wild in 2019, putting up a far-above-average year despite trade skirmishes, global economic sluggishness and political tumult. That's great for those already invested in stocks, but anyone with new money to spend is left looking at a lot of overvalued equities with severely depressed yields.

One solution? Peer over the Atlantic and seek out European Dividend Aristocrats.

You're certainly familiar with the S&P Dividend Aristocrats - 57 dividend stocks that have raised their payouts for 25 or more years. Well, the European Dividend Aristocrats are of a similar vein. To qualify as European payout royalty, a company needs to show only 10 or more years of stable or increasing dividends. But these companies also provide investors with diversification and much more reasonable valuation than many of their American brethren.

Another perk: European Dividend Aristocrats yield more - substantially more. As of this writing, they collectively yield 3.2%, versus 1.9% for the S&P Dividend Aristocrats.

Read on to explore all 41 European Dividend Aristocrats.

U.S. oil futures settle above $60 for first time since mid-September
Oil futures settled higher on Friday, with U.S. prices above $60 a barrel for the first time since mid-September. Traders digested news of a preliminary phase one U.S.-China trade deal that helped ease worries about the outlook for energy demand. The question of whether U.S. benchmark crude-oil futures can "break above multi-month resistance in the low $60s will depend on U.S.-China trade relations; a favorable deal with material tariff reductions will be supportive of a move higher in oil, while continued confusion on the status of the deal will keep energy markets capped," said Tyler Richey, co-editor at Sevens Report Research. January West Texas Intermediate oil rose 89 cents, or 1.5%, to settle at $60.07 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. For the week, prices rose 1.5%, according to FactSet data.
