My #1 'Forever Dividend' Stock [sponsor]
It takes a lot for me to classify a company as a "forever dividend stock". There must be an attractive dividend yield, a solid track record of increasing that yield over time and a price that does not exceed the current book value of the company's assets. I've poured through thousands of companies that supposedly fit the bill and ended up with just 3 "forever dividend stocks". Click here for the names of my top 3 dividend stocks.
