Dow Dividend Stock #6 – Kraft Foods (KFT)
Market Cap: $46.0 billion
Annual Dividend: $1.16
Dividend Yield: 3.8%
After consistently raising dividends every year since it went public in 2001, Kraft Foods (KFT)
hit the brakes in 2009 by freezing its dividend. However, there may be a boost in the works sometime soon to the company’s already high 3.9%
dividend yield. The world’s second-largest food company reported strong fourth-quarter profits in February that were quadruple the numbers from last
year thanks to a successful three-year restructuring of its business. It is set to report first-quarter earnings on May 6. The company’s recent
acquisition of British snack maker Cadbury should also keep KFT firmly in the black with plenty of profits to share.
