Dividends4Life: 3 Dividend Stocks That Prove Boring Is Beautiful

Too often investors are looking for investments that wow. However, some of the best stocks for the long haul are pretty bland. What makes these stocks such solid investments is that in between the yawns investors can collect a pretty eye-popping stream of dividend income.

Sherwin-Williams (NYSE:SHW) sounds boring, after all. However, boring can sometimes generate great returns. Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ) may not be the most exciting stock you'll ever own. But with plenty of growth drivers in place and healthy cash flows (at 8% free cash flow margin) to give it room to increase its stable 4% dividend (with a roughly 50% payout ratio) down the road. Over the past year, Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD) pulled in $5.3 billion in profits by operating pipelines, processing plants, and related energy infrastructure assets. These assets might not be all that exciting to talk about, but they are very effective at generating steady cash flow.
