It's hard to argue with IBM (IBM) as an income play. Historically, it's offered a solid mix of capital appreciation with a rising dividend. Over the past five years, IBM rose 35% while the S&P 500 slid 6%. The 10-year numbers are IBM up 24% and the S&P 500 down 21%. Go out 15 years, and it's IBM up 620% and the S&P 500 up 143%. Stretch it to 20 years, and it's IBM 422% and the S&P 500 218%. Meanwhile, the IBD dividend growth rate is 30%. History
