Dividend Stocks for the Next 100 Years
Solid, consistent dividends, on the other hand, force management to operate with discipline, because they know a portion of their income is going to be paid out each year.

If you want a dividend portfolio that won't require so much as a look for decades, or even a century, you've come to the right place. Below I have five dividend stocks that have a long history of paying dividends, and I think they'll continue to do so for another 100 years or more...

Dividend Stocks: A key building block for a retirement portfolio

Here are four companies that look enticing right now...
