Want Strong Dividend Stocks? These Dow Stars Have What You Want

The Dow Jones Industrials (DJINDICES: ^DJI  ) are a great place to look for strong dividend stocks. But which Dow stocks are the best at raising their dividends consistently over time? 

In the following video, Dan Caplinger, The Motley Fool's director of investment planning, looks at Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO  ) , 3M (NYSE: MMM  ) , and Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG  ) , with their long-term record of dividend growth. Dan notes that all three of the stocks have paid increasing dividends for more than 50 straight years, rewarding those who have stuck with those companies over the decades. By giving their customers valuable products that they need, these stocks from the Dow Jones Industrials have the staying power to keep growing their dividends. Dan goes through Coca-Cola, 3M, and Procter & Gamble one by one, noting that all of them have gone through challenges lately, yet concluding that they should be able to provide valuable income to Dow investors for years to come.
