3 Everyday Companies Dividend Investors Should Own

Posted by D4L | Monday, March 31, 2014 | 0 comments »

In today's world of low interest rates and a poor outlook on bonds looking forward, finding yield is often a difficult task. However, by investing in General Mills (NYSE: GIS), ConAgra (NYSE: CAG), and Kellogg (NYSE: K), you could be earning dividends currently yielding 3%, 3.5%, and 3%, respectively. You'll also get pieces of growing companies for years to come. All three of these companies are large players in the packaged food industry, each of them owning several household brand names.

You could diversify across these three major food producers to collect nice dividends and join in the industry's growth, or you could pick and choose. General Mills, ConAgra, Kellogg, are selling at 18.9, 17.9, and 12.4 times earnings, respectively, as compared to an industry average of 17.9. By this measure, none of the three are selling at outrageous prices. However, by the price to earnings ratio and by the stability of operations, it appears that Kellogg may be the most reasonably priced of the three. All three of these companies produce products that you and I consume every day. Owning these three great companies could give your portfolio safety through difficult market conditions while offering an attractive yield that should continue to grow as the years go on.
