  1. Hey DivGeek, I just read a post from JC about ROST and its dividend raise - sounds like it's had a fantastic history of dividend raises, and this one is a real whopper!

    Can't believe Colgate Palmolive has had 54 years of dividend increases - that is just Phenomenal!

    1. GD is a good company. In uncertain times weapon stocks are surely a good buy. I hope they never get used.

  4. Always happy to see a holding of mine announce a dividend increase. I'll take that CL raise. It's been such a quiet long time hold for me that is slowly but surely performing w/o any drama. Just doing its thing. Boring and steady. Like CLX.

    1. Hola Keith. 54 years of dividend increase is amazing. That's the power of consumer products.
