CHICAGO, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Zacks Investment Ideas feature highlights Features: The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), The Sherwin Williams Company (NYSE:SHW) and Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE:ADM).
Standard & Poor's runs an index called the "Dividend Aristocrats." These are companies in the S&P 500 that have not only paid a dividend every year for the past 25 years but have also increased that dividend every year during that time.
Yes, that includes the Great Recession years.
In 2009 and 2010, many companies couldn't handle the pressures of the economic downturn. They might have kept their dividends, but they were slashing them or keeping them where they were at. Fewer were raising them for obvious reasons.
The number of companies in the Aristocrats fell to 42 in 2010 from 52 in 2008. That was the lowest number in the last 5 years.
But by 2012, the number had moved higher and was again at 52 companies.
3 Companies That Raised Their Dividends Again In 2013
Just because a company has raised its dividend 25 years in a row, doesn't mean it will keep doing so. But these 3 companies have already announced their 2013 increases, extending their recent streaks.
Archer Daniels Midland was founded in its current incarnation in 1923. The "supermarket to the world" has paid a dividend every quarter since 1932. Even the struggles of the 1930s and World War II didn't stop it from rewarding shareholders.
It has raised it every year over the last 25 years. On Feb 6, ADM announced a 8.6% increase to 19 cents per share. This is a yield of 2.4%.
Archer Daniels Midland is yet another Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) stock. But it also is expected to see double digit earnings growth of 15% in 2013. Not too shabby for a century old company.
