Dividends4Life: 5 Dividend Stocks With 50-Plus Years of Annual Dividend Hikes

Many investors have heard of dividend aristocrats, stocks which have increased dividends for at least 25 straight years. However, once these stocks have hiked their payouts for at least 50 years, dividend stocks attain the title of “dividend king.” Dividend kings tend not to generate the publicity of more popular stocks. However, when dividend reinvestment is added, they outperform the S&P 500 as a group. Many of these stocks also maintain a dividend yield above the S&P average of 1.9%. Such dividend stocks will likely not appeal to growth-oriented investors. However, if one wants a stock that will generate both profits and income growth, these dividend kings should serve investors well for many years to come.

Cincinnati Financial (NASDAQ:CINF) stands as one of the dividend stocks that rarely earns a place in the headlines. Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) has struggled in recent years. Its product reaches almost every corner of the world, leaving little room for growth. Although one can consider Emerson (NYSE:EMR) a tech company, its segment of tech does not enjoy the higher profile of its peers in Silicon Valley or other tech hubs. Genuine Parts Company (NYSE:GPC) provides parts for automotive, industrial and other applications. Perhaps no company in corporate America commands more consumer respect and investor confidence than Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ).
