Dividends have generated a meaningful portion of total shareholder return over the last 100 years, for long-term investors there’s not much that’s more appealing than a stock with steady dividend growth.

I can’t make individual recommendations, sorry. The Dividend Aristocrats list (companies that have raised their dividend annually for at least 25 years in a row) is often cited as a good place to start — one version of that list is here.

Personally, the companies that I own in part because of the dividend and/or dividend growth potential are Medical Properties Trust, Innovative Industrial Properties, Crown Castle, Kennedy-Wilson, Tiptree and 3M.

I love finding the best long term stock at a moderate price and it has to be a solid company paying a good/great/fantastic dividend!

I came across Main Street Capital stock – price today, Nov. 3, at $28.67 – with a dividend yield of 8.59 percent paying – $2.46 annually. This is the best I’ve found so far!
