Top 5 Companies With A Consistent Dividend Paying History

By Saikat Mitra | 1/25/2013 9:00 PM Friday

Indian investors have a liking for dividends. While investing in shares, dividends are considered to be one of the sources of income for the investors apart from the capital appreciation. Therefore, it has been found that companies that have been consistent dividend payers attract more interest from investors than non-dividend paying companies.

In the following article, we have looked at companies that have paid dividends consistently for the past 11 years. While coming to the final list we have considered companies that have not only been regular dividend-payers but have also increased their dividend per share consistently.

We started off with 2500 companies and came down to 8 companies considering the above-mentioned logic. We have selected the top 5 companies sorted on the basis of their market capitalisation as of Jan 24, 2013. Let us now go through the top 5 companies with a consistent dividend payment history.
