      Thanks Happy Health and Wealthy Girl! Target is also a good dividend growth stock, I’m not sure about Discover though. Happy 4th!

  2. Currently valuations aside, I wouldn’t mind owning any one of these companies. All are great long term holds and the type of companies I want in our families portfolio. Thanks for sharing the list. AFFJ

    • Dan Mac says:

      Thanks Frugal Family. I would agree with you that all of these companies will be great long term investments to own.

  3. In regards to CAG ConAgra Foods, Inc. it appears that they have not increased it’s dividend in two years since it was raised 4% in mid 2012. It seems that management has been pretty stingy after seeing sales slow on many of their brands.

    • Dan Mac says:

      Thanks for pointing that out Captain Dividend. If they fail to increase the rate in 2014, it looks like their streak will be over as they’ll have paid the same amounts in 2013 and 2014. I’d definitely take this into consideration before making an investing in CAG.
