Markets also responded to a second day of congressional testimony from U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, whose upbeat remarks about the economy on Tuesday bolstered the dollar. Powell repeated on Wednesday that rising world protectionism would over time pose a risk to a U.S. and global expansion that currently appears largely on track to continue.

    39 European Dividend Aristocrats for International Income Growth

    Most income investors are already familiar with the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats, a group of 53 American companies that have increased dividends at least 25 years in a row. As a group, these have been solid holdings for long-term investors, outperforming both the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average over the past decade. But they're not the only dividend royalty on the planet. Far from it. There's also a collection of 39 stocks across the pond that have earned the title of European Dividend Aristocrats. These don't have quite the same dividend longevity of their American counterparts, with the index requiring a minimum of just 10 consecutive increases to their annual payouts. But they do have a leg up on the U.S. Aristocrats - they tend to yield more, offering 3% as a group versus just 2.5% for the American Aristocrats. Here's a look at each of these lesser-known (but still very dependable) European Dividend Aristocrats: SEE ALSO: 53 Best Dividend Stocks for 2018 and Beyond
