Dividends4Life: Stocks with 10 Years of Profitability and Increased Dividends

Investors usually look for two things when they invest. First, they want the company to earn money. Second, they want the earnings to be distributed to them. A stock which has positive net income and pays dividends, is not difficult to find. However, 10 years of profitability and increased dividends are a rarity in any markets. For stocks with long terms track records like this, a decent business outlook and reasonable valuations will be sufficient reasons to take a position.

I screened for stocks using the following criteria: 1. Ten years of positive net income, 2. Ten years of increasing dividends, 3. Dividend yield greater than 3% and 4. Net cash financial position with gross debt-to-equity ratios less than 30%. The following stocks passed the test: Arrow Financial Corporation (AROW), Paychex, Inc. (PAYX), Washington Trust Bancorp (WASH), NTT DOCOMO Inc. (DCM), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Met-Pro Corp.(MPR).
