I hold every single stock you mentioned in my DRIP portfolio (very small amounts at present) -- all have done just fine. The only complaint I have is with GE and it's a small one -- they don't offer safekeeping (this is not an issue if you buy your first shares directly from the company, which I think you can now -- I bought the shares from a broker so now I'm stuck caring for the certificate on my own). Also, the statement breaks out dividend payments between 'plan' shares and shares you hold, so it's just more complex dealing with them. Again, you won't have this problem if you just buy directly from them.
