I've found 12 stocks that have done something remarkable...
In arguably the most volatile period since the GreatDepression ,
these companies have seemingly ignored every "hiccup" themarket has
In the past year (ended June 30), these stocks have gained an
average of 29.4%... compared to just 5.4% for the S&P 500.
In the past five years, the S&P 500 has been up just 1.1%
(dividends included). While the overall market has languished,
these 12 stocks have returned an average of 68.4% during the same
Even better, in the past 10 years, they've returned an average of
181.2%... nearly triple the S&P's 68.1% return.
But all of this comes with an added benefit -- massivedividend
For example, just days ago, one of these 12 stocks increased its
quarterly dividend payment by 75%. And another one that I will tell

Icall these 12 stocks the "
World's Greatest Businesses.
" There are no guarantees, but my research shows this handful of

So how are these stocks able to beat the market... while raising
their dividend payments so steadily?
It's because they share 11 traits that I've identified as intrinsic

characteristics in this essay (you can read about all 11 traits

The world's greatest businesses return billions of dollars to
investors in the form of dividends and buybacks.
Take the first company I've identified as one of the world's
greatest businesses. It owns stakes in dozens of infrastructure
monopolies throughout the world.
It owns electric grids in Chile... railroads and coal facilities in
Australia... ports all over Europe... toll roads in South
America... and timberland in the United States and Canada.
In total, about 80% of thepartnership 's revenue is under contracts
or is regulated. Meanwhile, this practically guaranteed revenue is
coming from one of the most compelling portfolios I've ever seen.

returns a hefty portion of that cash to its investors.
Brookfield Infrastructure pays $0.375 per unit each quarter. That's
a 21% increase in just the past year, giving the units ayield of

Brookfield explicitly states its aim is to raise distributions 3-7%
a year, while aiming to return 60-70% of itsnet income to investors
in the form of distributions.
How many other investments tell you that it's their explicit goal
to continue increasing distributions... and at a rate that
And as you would expect with everything I've told you,
Brookfield has topped the market for years. The company first went
public in early 2008. As you can see, the stock has soundly beaten
