How about Proctor and Gamble? They have paid a dividend since the 1870's

You could have also got a 500% rate of return over the last 50 years just by buying E series savings bonds and reinvesting them every 20 years.  I know, there is a limit to how much money you can put in a savings bond every year, but still, compared to the stock market, I know which one I would choose for asset protection and a steady 3.5% annual yield.

Just one question - How much do you guys charge for this type of hype ?

If the author meant stocks 5 centuries old, he would have written five-century-old stocks.

The way the article is sub-titled, is meant five stocks that are a century old, or five century-old stocks.

So can the illiterates here please move on and go back to watching TV?

What a wonderful story ( NOT!)  about 5 companies that were great last year; but stink this next year-- and that probably was the case for the past 100 years or so with them, except for about a 1/5 of the time.  Sound familiar??-- Yeah, ALL companies do fluctuations like that.  But like they say-- past performance is no guarantee of continued gains-- but yet these BOZOs who report this stuff continually talk about past performances!!  If I got 50% of my revenue from a monopoly like the Kansas City Southern does, then I would expect a 12000%, or so gain, over 20 years as well-- but give them a little competition and they shiver in their boots-- get real and report on worthwhile companies, not aberrations that no body would normally hold on to for a 20 year stretch out of a 100 or so years!  Are these anomalies in the investment world, yes-- but who really cares about them!!!

Every week this worthless, Libtard "news" media give stock "advice."
The stock market is rigged. If it weren't, this administration wouldn't print $85 billion a month. Remember, professional wrestling is clean and everything else in the world is fixed.

Actuant, these are the guys that built the new Oakland San Francisco bay bridge that was supposed to be earthquake proof. Ha ha, now they find out shoddy workmanship like welding, and rusted bolts, so be careful about this one, if there is an earthquake tomorrow, and the bridge falls, they will surely be worthless overnight.

After the work is started then they tell you the real cost to finish, and hold the taxpayers and such hostage. This bridge cost 10 times what the original quote was for.

Stock market is just a over hyped scam to steal your money. I can trade real tangible assets and make a better rate of return then the markets worthless paper.

Well, manipulators in complete control, thus this aberration down here today...Nothing justifies this but, that is not important, remember, scumbags make their money by bringing markets down and they are in heaven today....Do not be surprised if you see the Dow drop 200+, that is their goal and of course the S&P...Remain on the sidelines, these crooks are not done cheating.....Today once again we are mirroring the economy sadly. More after the close.

Too bad the author does not know how to write.  I should have been Five, century old stocks...
May 26, 2014 3:24PM
5 century old stocks....... I had to read that one twice because at first I thought, how did they find stocks 5 centuries old in a country that isn't 3 centuries old yet, lmao
May 26, 2014 6:01PM
There are no companies still around from 1514. Much less with dividened paying stocks. This is really dumb.
May 20, 2014 9:57AM
After Friday, and especially yesterday, do not be surprised we opened up way down...Manipulators came out with swords drawn doing their thing early and often; they were not happy campers after the close yesterday so nobody is shocked down here.....Of course it is very early but sadly these scumbags are establishing themselves....Oh well, never give up, we will see what happens.

I'm pretty sure no one is left in America believing ANY bank is a good investment. Constantly bailed, corrupt, underhanded and for the past 7 years-- Federal Reserve funded through QE and don;'t ask don't tell asset alleviation sales. Apple was exploited. The i-Phone turned thinking people into peck zombies. It's ridiculously arrogant to write articles about non-enterprise no-hire false entities that do America no good. This is a junk journalism article. 
May 20, 2014 12:11PM
Like we said after the opening, be very careful today, manipulators took over from the get go...At 1155 hrs they called to accelerate the selling and now we are approaching triple digits on the down side....Why? Basically because of Friday and yesterday...We didn't have too many happy campers after yesterday's close...Remain cautious.
