In today's edition, Austin talks about one long-term dividend payer, Becton Dickinson. The company yields a robust 2.4%, has the macroeconomic trend of an aging population in its favor, and trades for more attractive multiples than the competition. Its free-cash-flow management remains strong as well, growing at 10% each of the last five years.
