Income investors are facing a pretty limited menu of investment options these days with short-term interest rates hovering around 0% and the economy still in recovery mode. Realty Income (NYSE: O) is one of the Dividend Aristocrats, which is a select group of S&P 500 companies who have raised their dividend payouts every year for at least 25 straight years. Realty Income is confident enough about its dividend payout history to trademark the moniker "The Monthly Dividend Company" to describe itself.
