Premium: Could This Be The Perfect Dividend Growth Fund?

For years I have searched for a solid Dividend Growth CEF/ETF that paid a respectable yield, with a history of growing its dividends and most importantly, the ability to continue to do so in the future. Most dividend CEF/ETFs, such as SPDR S&P Dividend ETF (SDY), pay an erratic dividend that doesn't always go up each year. I had pretty much given up on finding this elusive prey.

- Current yield 5.5%
