    Longevity of the dividend should not necessarily be the polestar metric for investors. Dividend growth is more important. In DuPont's case over the past 16 years, the quarterly dividend has been increased by only a dime from 35 to 45 cents in four small steps. The dividend of the much shrunken and shrinking DuPont Company has not even kept pace with inflation.

    The dividends of DuPont's superior-managed competitors, Monsanto and 3M Corp, have shown an increase in each and every year for the past decade.
