This will not even be an issue. Our 3Mers have left all new MMMers in good shape unless a young one comes in and destroys something good. We have seen it done to other. To make money you spend it unlike other Da Mining does this

More than just “Post it”. The company is very well diversified with multiple channels which provide it with a very well “diversified portfolio” of services which help it maintain competitive advantage within its industry. Company segments include: Industrial, Safety & Graphics, Electronics & energy, Health care, and customer.

As a whole, the company serves a plethora of industries ranging from automobile, electronics, appliance, paper and printing, packaging, food and beverage, construction, clinics and hospitals, pharmaceuticals, among others.

3Ms stock price has appreciated nearly 30% over the last year. I believe their continuous innovation strategy will keep them competitive and ahead of the curve.

There is an ROE of 26.7% with Debt/Equity of .37 and Interest Coverage of 46.25x. Core Growth Rate is 4.6% with room for payout ratio to increase from 49.57% to 82.77%. Based off historical analysis and current DGR, the 30 year CAGR should exceed 10%. My only issue with this stock is in the short term performance as I think it's overpriced with a P/E of 20.50 and a DCF valuation of $91.55 or about 34% more than current price. The DDM valuation though is $163.43 which has a 17.50% margin of safety for dividend growth. I think over time it will outperform the S&P 500 but again in the short term I think it's due a correction and would wait to buy until it comes down to a reasonable P/E of 16-17.

This solid low volatility stock can balance your portfolio. Invest in DDD, WPRT, WFM and other long term volatile yet high gainers, then balance your portfolio with a long term steady growth stock like 3M.

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 year

Because 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).

3M trades at more than 20 times expected 2013 earnings estimates and more than 18 times expected 2014 earnings estimates. That's very high compared to similar companies. So you won't be getting much of a deal at current prices. But MMM is up about 20% above the S&P 500 year to date and it could easily continue its outperformance with possibly less downside risk than investing in similar 'boring' stocks. Outperform.

Recent run up is less about fundamentals than performance-chasing.

This is an outstanding Blue Chip for science and the nations that have a little more going for them than religions and closed-minded politicians.

Reasonable valuation, should benefit as the economy improves, and impressive track record raising the dividend every year.

S&P 4 STAR

We continue to see improving organic sales growth in three of 3M's four major geographies (U.S., Asia-Pacific, and Latin America/Canada).
We view positively 3M's ability to generate strong returns on capital and free cash flows.
In addition, we like the company's innovative, consumable-product business mix, and believe its strategy of marketing new and innovative products to capture global market share and increase operating margins will continue to drive results.
We see improving economic growth in the U.S. and China as potential catalysts for the shares.
We also view the company's dividend, which is currently yielding 2.4%, as highly secure and likely to continue to be raised over time.
