My 3 Favorite Stocks with Over 100 Years of Dividend Payments

Everybody loves a long history. The longer the history of a company the bigger the database for investors and the more information is available for your desk research.

It also builds deep trust when a company has paid dividends over more than a decade. A great list of the best dividend-paying stocks with more than 25 years of consecutive dividend growth can be found on my blog. You can find there also stocks with 5 to 10 years and 10 to 25 years of consecutive growth.

The longest investment categories I cover are Dividend Kings. Those stocks have increased their payments over a period of more than 50 years without an interruption.

Today I top all these lists with a compilation of stocks that have paid dividends over more than 100 years. I discovered U.S. stocks as well as Canadian companies.

[/b][b]These U.S. companies have been paying dividends for well over 100 years:

Stanley Works (SWK) – paid dividends since 1877.

Exxon Mobil (XOM) – paid dividends since 1882.

Consolidated Edison (ED) – paid dividends since 1885, increased for 38 years.

Proctor & Gamble (PG) – paid dividends since 1890.

Coca-Cola (KO) – paid dividends since 1893 and a quarterly dividend since 1920.

Colgate-Palmolive (CL) – paid dividends since 1895.

Dupont (DD) – paid dividends since 1904.

These Canadian companies have been paying dividends for well over 100 years:

Bank of Montreal (BMO) – paid dividends since 1829.

Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) – paid dividends since 1832.

TD (TD) – paid dividends since 1857.

CIBC (CM) – paid dividends since 1868.

Royal Bank (RY) – paid dividends since 1870.
