Excerpt from an unedited CAPSCall article anticipated for publication on 18-DEC-2012The next selection for the newly launched Inflation-Protected Income Growth Portfolio is safety equipment manufacturer Mine Safety Appliances (NYSE: MSA). While it may not exactly be a household name as a company, it is the go-to supplier of choice for those whose lives depend on their equipment.With a history of rising dividends that stretches back for 41 years, the company’s shareholder friendly behavior predates the Bush dividend tax cuts by a few decades. That makes it highly unlikely the pattern will be derailed just because those cuts are slated to expire. And with a respectable payout ratio of 46%, it has considerable coverage even if things do go bad.
