kid, you did not refute my point with facts. Re-read my post. I said "How many companies (any?)....etc". I did not say that UTC was the only company. Indeed, I asked "how many"....and parenthetically asked if there were "any?.
Being the stickler on facts that you are...you provided some. The point was that UTC increased its dividend by double-digits going in and coming out of the Great Recession....indicative of a very strong financial position. That was the only "fact" that I cited.
