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.

SuperStockScreener Strong Buy
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.
I believe this will rise to 150.00 soon

S&P 4 STARWe 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.
