General Electric Stock Price on October 29, 1929

In 1896, General Electric was one of the original 12 companies listed on the newly formed Dow Jones Industrial Average and still remains after 114 years, the only one remaining on the Dow (though it has not continuously been in the DOW index). GE has paid a dividend every quarter since 1899 including 32 consecutive years of dividend increases from 1976 to 2007.
