Fast Food Dividends: McDonald’s and Heinz

Posted by D4L | Thursday, May 06, 2010 | | 0 comments »

Investors looking for some safe dividend stocks for their portfolio, should take a look at the fast food combo of McDonalds (NYSE: MCD) and Heinz (NYSE: HNZ). Both companies are expanding internationally and have the “goods” to strengthen a portfolio for years to come.

Heinz sells nearly 650 million bottles for ketchup each year and is experiencing great growth overseas. More than 60 percent of its sales come from international sources, and 15 percent from emerging economies. With an impressive 74 percent dividend growth over the past five years, McDonalds is certainly keeping shareholders happy. With a distribution yield of 3.1 percent and significant growth opportunities in China, Latin America and Eastern Europe, the company can viewed more as growth stock rather than a boring blue chip.
