Colgate-Palmolive Extends Its Dividend Hike Streak@offshore stockbroker | Stockbroker |

"One of the steadiest and most reliable dividend payers on the market -- Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE: CL) -- is raising its distribution yet again. The consumer goods conglomerate has bumped its quarterly payout 3% higher to $0.40 per share. That's par for the course, as Colgate-Palmolive is a Dividend Aristocrat -- one of the very few stocks that has lifted its dividend at least once annually for a minimum of 25 years in a row."
