Heineken PINK:HINKYDividend Yield: 2.1%

Another stock in the alcohol sphere I like is Dutch mega-brewer Heineken NV (PINK:HINKY).

The global beer market is dominated by the Big 4 — Anheuser Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD), Heineken, SABMiller (PINK:SMBRY) and Carlsberg — though beer sales have been stagnant in the company’s core American and European markets. Sales are booming in emerging markets, however, and the Big 4 continue to gobble up small local brands with reckless abandon.

Heineken is unique among Western multinationals in that it is not only a great indirect play on rising incomes in the developing world, but it is a great play on the development of Africa in particular. Heineken already gets roughly a quarter of its revenues from Africa, and this percentage will only rise over time as the African middle class grows and develops.

Heineken pays a decent dividend of 2.1%.
