Dividends4Life: Dividend Stocks for the Next 100 Years

Dividend Stocks for the Next 100 Years

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, November 23, 2016 | | 0 comments »

There are a handful of stocks on the market that have been paying a dividend for over 100 years. Procter & Gamble, ExxonMobil, and General Mills are three such names, and one thing they hold in common is that they run very stable and (arguably) boring businesses. They're also not involved in the volatile tech industry, where some of the world's biggest companies are today, but where businesses can also go from household name to obscurity in just a few years (see BlackBerry). Nor do they sell volatile consumer discretionary goods that can swing in and out of favor.

As we look forward to the next century, investors looking for low-risk dividends that can last another 100 years should be on the lookout for businesses that won't be easily disrupted by new technology or changing lifestyles. Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE:CL), PepsiCo (NYSE:PEP), Sherwin-Williams (NYSE:SHW), and American Water (NYSE:AWK) are four stocks that I think will be great dividend investments built for the next century.
