Current Yield: 3.7%
Next on the list is consumer products giant Kimberly-Clark (NYSE:KMB). If you thought it was impossible for a company to be more boring than Wal-Mart, you failed to consider Kimberly-Clark. The company manufactures and sells diapers, Kleenex and other basic products you might find in your bathroom.
But like Wal-Mart, Kimberly-Clark is a dividend-raising dynamo. Over the past decade, its quarterly dividend has risen from 30 cents to 74 cents, good for a 3.7% yield — not half-shabby when you consider what a volatile decade it has been.
