Illinois Tool Works (ITW) is a strong hold for the total return and dividend growth investor. Illinois Tool Works is one of the largest manufacturers and distributors of industrial products and equipment for commercial customers worldwide.
Illinois Tool Works is being reviewed using the Good Business Portfolio guidelines. The company has steady growth and has plenty of cash it uses to buy bolt-on companies, develop new products and systems, and increase the dividend each year.
I use a set of guidelines that I codified over the last few years to review the companies in The Good Business Portfolio (my portfolio) and other companies that I am reviewing. For a complete set of guidelines, please see my article "The Good Business Portfolio: Update to Guidelines, August 2018". These guidelines provide me with a balanced portfolio of income, defensive, total return, and growing companies that hopefully keeps me ahead of the Dow average.
When I scanned the five-year chart, Illinois Tool Works has a great chart going up and to the right for 2016 and 2017 in a strong solid pattern. It is a cyclic company and was down in 2018 and has recovered well in 2019.
