The Fabulous Forties (number of years of rising dividends in parentheses): Proctor and Gamble (44), Genuine Parts (44), MMM (41), Old Kent Financial (41), Johnson and Johnson (40)The Thrilling Thirties: Cinncinati Financial (39), Coca Cola (37), Tootsie Roll (34)(also give annual 3% stock dividends), J.P. Morgan (33), Pfizer (32), Philip Morris (32)Really interesting info. It would be interesting to find out the total gains of each of these stocks over the same time period (ie, div + appreciation).I know of one retired couple who have been living on the dividends from solid companies like these, and over 30 years of retirement, their income has increased almost every year, and the value of the underlying stocks have risen much faster than inflation. This is a very simple retirement scheme. No yearly rebalancing required.-rkm
