Investing Dividends for over 100 yearsWhich company has paid uninterrupted dividends for more than 110 years? Actually there's more than one company! Dividends Growth Stocks recently published a list of 15 companies that have paid uninterrupted dividends for more than 110 years.

Dividend Growth Stocks writes:

"The key to successfully selecting dividend growth stocks is the ability to identify companies that will not only maintain but grow their dividend. Often it can be boiled down to a simple question: "How committed is the company to paying its dividend?"

Sure most CEOs give lip-service to their commitment to shareholders, but what happens when times are hard. When the economy turns down and the future looks bleak, will the company hoard cash and stop its dividend or put action behind its words?"

Here is a short list of companies that have paid uninterrupted dividends for more than 110 years:

General Mills, Inc.
Dividend Paid Since: 1898

Colgate-Palmolive
Dividend Paid Since: 1895

Coca-Cola Company
Dividend Paid Since: 1893

Procter & Gamble
Dividend Paid Since: 1891

Exxon Mobil Corporation
Dividend Paid Since: 1882
