Our recent focus on US Dividend Aristocrat stocks that have increased dividends every year for the past 25 years prompted a discussion with readers about which Australian listed companies have also been able to deliver an outstanding dividend history over a long period of time. Five stocks kept being mentioned - Washington H. Soul Pattinson (SOL), A.P. Eagers (APE), ARB Corporation (ARB), Ramsay Health Care (RHC), and InvoCare (IVC). The first two have been around for a long time - SOL first listed in 1903 and APE in 1957. All five stocks have served their shareholders well, with long-term growth in EPS, DPS and share price. In the full article below, I provide an overview of each and comment on the importance of competitive advantages.
