What Makes The Procter & Gamble Company Such a Great Dow Dividend Stock?

Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG  ) is a paragon of long-term stability, even by the blue-chip standards of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI  )  Roughly 4.8 billion customers around the globe enjoy P&G's household products, and the company boasts 25 brands with billion-dollar annual sales.

Even better, P&G investors have enjoyed 123 years of uninterrupted dividend payments, including 57 straight annual payout boosts -- and the streak continues.

What's behind P&G's sterling business performance, and what sets the company apart from respectable rivals such as Kimberly-Clark (NYSE: KMB  ) and Clorox (NYSE: CLX  ) ? Fool analyst Anders Bylund dives into Procter & Gamble's unique competitive advantage in the video below.

Procter & Gamble is a stellar dividend stock from the Dow, but why stop at just one cash machine?
