Dividend payments, earnings, revenues and market share are factors that show increasing growth for these companies. Kiplinger editors recommend Helmerich & Payne, a leader in shale oil drilling services, because it increased dividend payouts 10 times in two years. Another recommendation, Dover Corp, an industrial components maker, has increased its dividend payment consistently over 59 years.

In September 2014, Mark Yockey, manager of several stock portfolios at Artisan Partners, recommended investments for an aging bull market, according to Anne Kates Smith for Kiplinger. One recommendation, Comcast, shows double-digit earnings growth through its ownership of NBCUniversal, a media content provider reaching mobile devices. Marsh & McLennan, a New York City-based insurance broker, generates cash and growing revenues through cost efficiencies and increasing premiums.

Mr. Yockey also recommends Baidu, China's leading search engine business, because of increasing advertisement revenues from Asia's expanding mobile search, notes Smith. Company size, potential growth, global reach or being a U.S.-based business are other consideration factors; however, overall, Kiplinger recommends buying reasonably priced stock during the tail end of a bull market run.
