34 Best Dividend Stocks With A 100 Year Long History

Blue chip stocks are established large-cap businesses that pay reliable dividends. 

They have long corporate histories and provide well-known products and/or services. 


This article examines every business in the S&P 500 with a 3% yield and a 100+ year corporate history. These are my criteria:

- Stocks with yields at or above 3%

  1. I still worry about GM cutting dividends some day again. Maybe after it hits the 15 year mark I may buy back in. Nordstrom is not one I have looked at though and it's dividend growth history seems solid. I will have to add them to the list.
    Thanks for the info.
    Cheers,
    DFG
