A Dividend Aristocrat almost two times over is being added to the Best Dividend Stocks list as of today. This global food giant has over $7 billion in free cash flow and more than 3.7% organic revenue growth from 2015 to 2016. It has around 9% core constant currency EPS growth, achieved a billion dollars in productivity savings annually since 2012 and returned more than $7 billion to shareholders during 2016 through share repurchases and dividends.

This company has been filling our snack and beverage needs for more than 100 years. It’s recession resistant and did not cut its dividend during the past two recessions. The company cannot get more blue chip in nature. The firm continues to expand into new emerging markets such as China and South Africa with its core offerings, as well as some well-timed M&A. Meanwhile, in the developed world, new healthy beverages and natural snack options have been added.
