That is a great list of America's best companies that pay dividends... Companies such as McDonalds, Intel, AT&T, P&G, Dupont, Caterpillar, Exxon Mobil... They make investing in America great. You should also consider investing in companies that are consistently growing their dividends.

Investing in the best dividend paying companies creates huge wealth over the long term thanks to compounding dividend returns. Some investors like to top it up a notch by investing in good companies with huge dividend growth rates, this is like turbo charging your Porsche Cayyene. Inflation in America runs at 2% - 3% annual clip so you want to find good dividend paying stocks with dividend growth above those rates.
