Nick McCullum

The Dividend Aristocrats are among the highest-quality stocks an investor can buy for the long-term. While the Dividend Aristocrats have raised their dividends for at least 25 consecutive years, the Dividend Kings have maintained 50+ years of dividend growth. Shares of Illinois Tool Works currently yield 3.0% right now, a strong payout for a time-tested Dividend King.
