Four Dividend Paying Companies With Long Term Growth Plans

Yield: 3.40% (analysis)

Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB), together with its subsidiaries, engages in manufacturing and marketing health care products worldwide. The company operates in four segments: Personal Care, Consumer Tissue, K-C Professional and Other, and Health Care. This dividend aristocrat has consistently raised dividends for 40 years in a row. As with other consumer products companies, the growth is likely to come from developing and emerging markets, rather than developed markets. Developed markets could benefit from cost cutting and efficiency profits, which would decrease the total price of doing business. Under the company's global business plan, announced in 2003, it is looking for annual sales growth in the 3%-5% range, EPS growth in the mid to high single digits and dividend increases in line with earnings growth.

International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) provides information technology (IT) products and services worldwide. The company operates in five segments: Global Technology Services, Global Business Services, Software, Systems and Technology, and Global Financing. This dividend achiever has rasied distributions for 17 years in a row.
IBM has publicly announced its goal to hit $20 in earnings per share by 2015. The company is one of the most consistent repurchasers of stock, having reduced the total shares outstanding by 50% since 1995. The company expects that one third of the gains would come from revenue growth driven by organic growth and acquisitions. The company is relying on growth markets, its business analytics segment, its smarter planet initiative as well as its cloud and next generation data center businesses to deliver revenue growth. Almost one third of the growth would come from share buybacks as well. The remainder would come from increased productivity in its core segments, as well as continuing its focus on offering high value to its customers. Yield: 1.70% (analysis)
