My guess is not many of the level-headed, perceptive, beautiful readers of this website are frothing to jump on LinkedIn (LNKD) after today’s IPO. The “social network for professionals” closed its first day as a public company with an $8.91 billion valuation — or nearly 600 times its 2010 earnings.

Listed below are 19 logical, exceptionally stable alternatives for income investors. Each of these companies has a smaller market cap than LinkedIn despite paying an improved dividend total for at least 40 consecutive years.
