+ Watch ITW
on My Watchlist
The Company is a worldwide manufacturer of highly engineered products and specialty systems.
ITW has an A for financial health and a PEG less than 1 on Morningstar, so it's one of my long picks.
Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:- A payout ratio below 50%- An increasing dividend from the prior yearBecause there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen. Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).http://www.factset.com/websitefiles/PDFs/dividend/dividend_12.16.13If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.
Come on, you can't shrink this much and have an ever higher stock price for too long
This is an operationally efficient company that has some very smart people running it today. They have increased dividends for over 50 straight years and are in the midst of a multi-year plan to use the company's heft to find some meaningful savings through a strategic sourcing project.

Steady growth and growing dividends. Illinois Tool Works has a good track record of consistent and almost boring price growth. I have no reason to believe they will change what works and so I'm getting in at $75 and holding forever.
Efficient, Diverse, profitable......stock buy back, Dividend...nuf said
Steady long-term perform with increasing dividends
The combination dividend yield, expected growth and profitability makes this company a long term buy
Long Term Buy
I picked this near a 52 week high but it don't really matter. This equity will closely track the S&P and should outperform over time. Numbers are good under a 14 PE on this years earning. 9.3% 5yr growth rate projection with a 2.5 % dividend yield. Margins are ok and so are ROE and ROI. This company has a great track record.
sticking with what i know - ITW owns Devcon, and i'm a big fan of epoxy and RTV silicone.
Relatively cheap company that pays a solid dividend and has the potential to break-up to unlock value now that Relational Investors has a seat on the board.Deej
The Berkshire of Industrials
Nice dividend/dividend growth
With more than 800 'pick & shovel' companies around the world, all semi-autonomous, whatever risk exists in their industrial sector is spread as much as is possible. Glamorous? No, but stolid and solid, and should keep on keeping on long after I'm gone.
Company takes advantage of its size and breadth while trying to limit the negative effects of its size and breadth. They have been doing a phenomenal job over long stretches, good value at this price.
Passed a variety of screens.
This is a "Giant Tortoise Stock." Like a giant tortoise, It may be big and slow, but it has a hard shell (economic moat), can swim far (enter into new and emerging markets and industries), and live long.
