DuPontLogo e1282585884678 5 Real American Dividend HeroesEI du Pont De Nemours And Co. (NYSE:DD) — otherwise known as DuPont to the vast majority of us — never has won an award for being an exciting stock. That’s fine. Usually the more exciting the stock is, the less dependable that 3.5% dividend yield becomes.

And make no mistake — the chemical company’s dividend and dividend growth are ridiculously reliable. DuPont has paid a quarterly dividend every single quarter for as far back as I could find (into the early 1960s), and its payout has only gone up since the early ’80s … never down.
