Dividends: A Sign Of Financial Strength

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, June 16, 2010 | | 0 comments »

When a company pays a dividend, it’s a sign of financial strength. When a company has been paying dividends for decades, and raising its dividend regularly, you’ve got something really special. Today we’re looking for U.S. companies with exceptionally long records of dividend payments and dividend increases. These companies have history on their side.

Bill Bouchard, founder of dividendinvestor.com, calls these consistent dividend growers “dividend all-stars.” “It’s a sign of stability if a company’s been able to increase its dividend for 10, 15 or 30 years in a row,” he said. “A dividend increase shows that the board is confident in the company’s future prospects.”
