    I think two that have done the best over the last ten years...when dividends are re-invested...are Merck (MRK) and Altria (MO). Sorry I cannot remember the article that pointed that out... think it might have been a Motley Fool chart about three months ago.

    P.S. That would make them " famous" not " notorious"..right?

    There have been a few that have a rather long past record of doing well. Whether that record will continue is open to debate. JNJ, MMM, GE, PG, WMT, MCD are several that come to mind.

    Berkshire Hathaway.

    you could do worse than to read some of their back annual reports -- they're online and free at their website.
