NEW YORK (RealMoney) -- Although I focus mainly on small and micro-cap companies, they certainly aren't the only game in town. In fact, when it comes to dividend growth, the majority of candidates are the larger names.
Here, yield also plays a role. In my small search for small-cap dividend growers, I ignore the level of yield because some of the companies don't have a long operating history and still may be in a growth phase. As such, they don't tend to be high yielders. With the larger names, you can find the best of both worlds in growing dividends and decent yields.
With that in mind, I utilized the following criteria in my search:
