Coca cola The company has 124 years of history in which it has never missed a dividend payment. Not only has it paid a dividend each quarter since 1920, but it has also increased dividends in each of the last 54 years, making KO stock a “dividend king,” a distinction earned by those companies which have raised dividends for at least 50 straight years. The company increased its quarterly dividend in February by six percent to $0.35 per share. At today’s price, KO stock has an annual dividend yield of 3.28%. In the past 10 years, the company’s quarterly dividend payment has more than doubled. Walmart stores Another important reason to make Wal-Mart a part of your top-paying dividend stock portfolio is that the company is recession-proof due to its unrivaled power of getting the best prices from its suppliers and selling products which are consumers are unlikely to stop buying in the event of a spending cut. WMT stock has proven over many recessions that it can beat the market by a big margin, as consumers turn to discount retailers on the first sign of recession.
