My wife and I hold Genuine Parts, MMM, and Pfizer. We also have some of the "twinkling 20s" - REITS such as United Dominion (23 years) and Washinton Real Estate Investment Trust (28) plus First Virginia Bank (22), and RPM (26). RPM is also distinctive from going 52 years with consecutive earnings increases, a record that apparently is going to end because of restructuring costs. They produce things like Rust Oleum, DAP products, and Testers hobby products among many others. I do think they need to consolidate things.

Some of these don't go back before 1973-1974, but the recessions of Reagan and Bush were no picnic, and the inflation years of Ford and Carter were sweaty also.
