Here’s a small-cap regional financial company that reeks of long-term performance. Tompkins Financial (TMP) has shown profits, revenue and cash dividends for 59, 56 and 132 years consecutively. The company has increased dividends for 24 straight years. TMP even skated through the financial crisis in 2008 and broke profit records, so no worries here when it comes to lending practices. With the Fed promising to taper its monthly bond buying, interest rates are expected to rise and give regional banks more flexibility to up dividends…not that Tompkins needs that impetus to do so. TMP currently yields 3.2% and provided a comfortable 20% profits to investors in 2013. There’s no reason 2014 won’t mark the Tomkins’ 25th consecutive year of a dividend boost.
