3M (MMM), one of the largest manufacturers and distributors of industrial products spanning medical to automobile products, is a buy for the dividend growth investor and total return investor. 3M has steady growth and has plenty of cash, which it uses to buy bolt-on companies, increase the dividend each year, and buy back shares. The stock comprises 0.92% of The Good Business Portfolio, my IRA portfolio of good business companies that are balanced among all styles of investing.
When I scanned the five-year chart, 3M has a good chart going up and to the right in a steady, strong slope for four of the five years, with 2015 flat in a poor market. The recent downturn in 2018 provides a buying opportunity to buy a quality company at a discount.
