A very close competitor to Sherwin Williams; PPG is making its mark as a leader in the coating and painting industry. One of the company's main strategy for competitive advantage is via acquisitions of companies that complement current services and provide more options for their core customers. I am bullish on PPG. Bonus: Company has been paying consistent dividends since the 1800's!

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).

By growing in high margin sectors of the coatings industry, PPG has been able to quietly increase market share and technical dominance of the industrial performance coatings market. The acquisition of Ameron, Sigma Kalon, and Spraylat are positive steps in the positioning of their brand as the leader in high tech coatings. Transversely, they have embraced the architechtural coatings markets with their purchase of AkzoNobels architectural coatings division. With housing on the upswing, PPG is in a great position to grow.

High dividend, high margins. Protective and decorative coatings always needed, chemicals, specialty materials with optical give it a kick. Good book value. Sales going up. Shareholder equity going up.

PPG will recover nicely in 18 months. Dividends will help in the interim.

Pittsburgh Plate Glass, a company recently profiled by Cramer. If you've heard of them, it's probably because of their best-of-breed automotive metalflake paints (they make that 'flip-flop' paint that changes colors in the sun). But that only makes up 4% of their revenue. They also make something like 15% of the world's eyeglass lenses as well as a variety of diversified industrial products.

Mid cap company with a record of steady dividend increases since 1972, just raised the dividend again in October 2008 in the face of the global slowdown. They don't screw around, with net revenues of $9 per share and profits over $5 per share - payout ratio is around 40%. And the yield right now is 4.6%, making the stock look underpriced.

Buy some shares, put 'em on a DRIP and never sell 'em.
