8 of the Most Dependable Dividends

The World Cup format brings in 32 teams from around the globe who square off until only one remains. After the first round, 16 teams are eliminated, then 8 more bite the dust. We figured that would be a good place to start. With that in mind, here is a look at the the World Cup of dividend stocks. It’s the eight toughest, strongest dividend titans out there, and they’re all vying for a piece of investors’ funds. These companies have not only paid out a dividend for many consecutive years, they’ve also raised that dividend for many consecutive years...

With its increase in January, 3M (NYSE:MMM) has not only paid a dividend for 60 years, but it’s consistently raised its payout for six decades. Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR) is next, as it has paid out and raised its dividend for 61 straight years. Dover (NYSE:DOV) is up next, with its 62 consecutive years of a pay-and-raise dividend. I hate to spoil the fun, but the next several names are also tied at 62 consecutive years. In February, Genuine Parts (NYSE:GPC) gave a 6.7% hike to its quarterly dividend, making it to 62 consecutive years. Northwest Natural Gas (NYSE:NWN) has raised its dividend for 62 consecutive years and will likely do so later this year, in October. Like 3M, Industrial equipment maker Parker-Hannifin (NYSE:PH) has been beaten down so far this year. A name like Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) is usually first in investors’ mind. American States Water (NYSE:AWR). What it lacks in market cap though it makes up for in consistency, leading all U.S. stocks with 63 consecutive years of dividend increases.
