Anyone have any doubts about McDonald's continuing ability to sustain and continue to raise its dividend for many years to come? If you believe in long-term dividend growth investing, why would you not have what is surely one of the safest dividends to be found as one of your CAPS picks. This one's a no-brainer. I would buy it in real life but its direct stock purchase plan requires all dividends be reinvested in order to stay enrolled in the plan. I use direct stock purchase plans through either Computershare, BNY Mellon, or the companies themselves (SCG, AEE). I take my dividends as income and it helps me to save more money faster so I can buy more dividends. But I want to be able to redirect my dividend income as I please, rather than mindlessly reinvest it.
