We're talking real SPAM here, not stock spam. Anybody that has tasted a SPAMburger at the Fly-By-Night Club in Spenard, Alaska knows what I'm talking about. Hormel has been around for nearly 120 years and has paid a dividend for 81 of those years with a nice history of dividend growth. Revenue per employee beats the industry average by $110,000.00, and net income per employee is almost 10 times the industry average. This is a solid, stalwart of a company that employs folks with a real solid work ethic. I'll keep eating that occasional SPAMburger (slice of SPAM on top of a beef patty, with cheese of course) and if you don't like SPAM, that's OK, chances are you're eating some of the other products in Hormel's pantry (or refrigerator).

Slight correction: net income per employee is only about 8 times the industry average, not 10. Sorry.
