MDT is a very interesting stock for us Dividend investors. Medtronic has increased is dividend every year for the last 35 years and I see no sign of it slowing down. If they keep increasing it at this rate the dividend will double every 4 years on average which really strong in my opinion. With the increasing technology in the Medical Industry Medtronic will be developing new technology that will keep there earnings steadily increasing and keep their profit margins up. I do not currently have a position in Medtronic but it is on my short list of stocks I soon want to purchase.
