Steel company Nucor (NUE - Get Report) fits the mold for a consistently high dividend payer: it's big, it's boring, and it's flush with cash. The firm operates steel mills, producing steel as well as construction products like joists, wire and girders. In keeping with its metal-centric business, Nucor is also the country's largest scrap broker and processor, business that's become particularly attractive as spot prices for hard commodities continue to creep higher.
