Stocks with over 100 years of dividend payment history originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Everybody loves a long history. The longer the history of a company the bigger the database for investors and the more information's are available for your desk research.
It's also a deeply trust building when a company has paid dividends over more than a decade. A great list of the best dividend paying stocks with more than 25 years of consecutive dividend growth can be found on my blog. You can find there also stocks with 5 to 10 years and 10 to 25 years of consecutive growth.
The longest investment categories I cover are Dividend Kings. Those stocks have increased their payments over a period of more than 50 years without an interruption.
