Wal-Mart is a behemoth that was just ranked No. 1 on the Fortune Global 500. The company recently raised its dividend by 9%, and has increased its dividend every year since it first started paying one back in 1974. Its yield is average for the Dow companies, and it seems like a pretty stable company that can provide investors with a decent yield over the long run.
