Current Dividend Yield: 2%

When it comes to companies paying dividends come hell or high water, one company has managed to put a shiny new coat of paint on their payout for the past 113 years: paint and specialty coatings maker PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG).

PPG also has managed to boost its payout to shareholders each year for the past 39 consecutive years. That’s quite impressive, especially given the tribulations in the housing market and other industries over the past decade.

Still, PPG Industries has managed to prevail, and it’s doing so today to the tune of a 2% dividend yield. Smart income investors need to paint this stock into their portfolio, as this dividend coating never runs dry.
