Dividends4Life: Consumer Staples vs. Treasuries

Consumer Staples vs. Treasuries

Posted by D4L | Sunday, September 01, 2013 | | 0 comments »

Rock-bottom Treasury yields had many income investors turning to dividend-paying stocks over the past few years. But now Treasury yields have risen and the prices on many of those income stocks have been bid up, dropping their yields. To help find out how stocks stack up to Treasuries, I'll run them both through a 10-year discounted cash flow model. Representing fixed income: the 10-year Treasury note, with current yield bumping up against 2.9%.

In the stock corner: five consumer staples companies. Odds are you'd find products from several of these companies in almost any home in the U.S. and, increasingly, homes around the world: McCormick (NYSE: MKC), Clorox (NYSE: CLX), J.M. Smucker's (NYSE: SJM), Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) and Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO).
