One way to look at the Dow Jones Industrial Average is as a collection of some of the market's best dividend-paying stocks. In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos takes a look at two of the most impressive dividends within that already strong group: Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) and Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ).
Demitrios discusses these companies' long histories of paying -- and boosting -- their dividends, as well as how important those payouts can be to overall returns. He also reviews projected future earnings to get a reading of whether the Dow giants can continue raising their dividends in the years ahead.
