- Increased their dividend for at least the last 20 years

  1. It is intresting to see some of these names. I was aware that Exxon has a dividend record that goes back to 1882. But I wasn't aware of some of the named companies like Stanley Black & Decker.

    I need to do some research on those companies.

    Cheers,
    Geblin
