VF Corp (NYSE:VFC) finally pulled the trigger earlier this month when it announced it was buying Williamson-Dickie — the maker of the Dickies brand of workwear — for $820 million. A. O.

S&P Global Inc (NYSE:SPGI) is the index provider behind the S&P 500. AbbVie Inc (NYSE:ABBV) is in a weird situation in that while it’s considered a Dividend Aristocrat, it has only been a publicly traded company for four years.
