A fine list of stocks.

Personally I would substitute PM for MO. Yes one loses 1.3% in dividend. But its Phillip Morris international presence which is unlikely to be affected by government actions against it, unlike in the US. The Asia & Africa market are likely to continue to boom. And while the EU has US like smoking bans; Europeans continue to light up.

PM:
2nd quarter 2008 dividend was .46/share increased in 3rd quarter 2008 to .54/share=17.3% increase.
3rd quarter 2009 dividend increased to .58/share=7.4% increase.
3rd quarter 2010 dividend increased to .64/share=10.3% increase.
3rd quarter 2011 dividend increased to .77/share=20.3% increase.
3rd quarter 2012 dividend increased to .85/share-9.7% increase

MO:
3rd quarter 2009 dividend increased to .34/share=5.9% increase.
1rd quarter 2010 dividend increased to .35/share=2.9% increase.
3rd quarter 2010 dividend increased to .38/share=8.6% increase.
3rd quarter 2011 dividend increased to .41/share=7.9% increase.
3rd quarter 2012 dividend increased to .44/share=7.3% increase.

So pick yer poison.<g>
