Virtually every pantry in the US has something made by these guys. This by no means lights the world on fire, but it's a well-managed company with a good record of outperforming the market over long periods of time and that's partly thanks to the 2.1% and rising dividend yield. Looking for a holding for 5+ years? This is one to consider and I said so today on Investor Beat.

You picked a good day to add this to your Caps list! As I write this the stock is up nearly 3%. Market corrections don't last for long these days! It's best to take advantage of them while you can.

The Smucker family also still controls 3% of the company.
