Very few management teams can make acquisitions at rational prices and then turn them into earnings. Even fewer can make them improve earnings. GIS and its CEO have performed this magic trick over and over. The dividend increase and 3.3% yield were enough to take me out of my comfort zone ( 10 P/E) for stand alone shares of this business- I already own them within some of my better mutual funds. If you think you need some fairly safe yields, think about this instead of wimpy bonds.
