Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks for the Next 100 Years

Dividend Stocks for the Next 100 Years

Posted by D4L | Saturday, October 26, 2013 | | 0 comments »

here are two main ways companies can pay investors for owning their stock. They can buy back shares -- reducing the numbers of shares outstanding and theoretically raising the stock price -- or they can pay dividends. Buybacks are common in corporate America, but there's a lot of debate about how effective they are. Companies are notoriously bad at timing purchases, often buying high and then offering shares when the stock is low, so there's an element of risk and luck to buybacks. Solid, consistent dividends, on the other hand, force management to operate with discipline, because they know a portion of their income is going to be paid out each year. In the long term, dividends often result in market-beating returns for patient investors.

If you want a dividend portfolio that won't require so much as a look for decades, or even a century, you've come to the right place. Below I have five dividend stocks that have a long history of paying dividends, and I think they'll continue to do so for another 100 years or more: 3M (NYSE: MMM), Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE: CL), The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE: PG), DuPont (NYSE: DD) and Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK).
