General Mills, Inc. is a manufacturer and marketer of branded consumer foods sold through retail stores. The Company is also a supplier of branded and unbranded food products to the North American food service and commercial baking industries.
This is an industry that (in my opinion) is a safe hedge during market corrections and inflation - people have to eat regardless of the economy!
Plus it has a nice yield of 3.11%

Extending intent to hold GIS for 5+ years. Market compound annual growth rate has been 16.31% vs. 15.19% for S&P over the period while average annual return on invested capital has been 7%. The only negative has been a reduction in book value per share. Overall we like firm performance and the competitive position.

I just have a hunch that yogurt is finally here to stay on the American culinary scene, and GIS will profit from the trend. So, I'm putting CAPS money into GIS and, if the share price dips a bit, maybe I'll put some real money into it, too!

This an S&P company that usually beats the S&P 500, and pays a decent dividend.

Staple Food company. I like the dividends, but need them to start moving into the Organic food space OR merge with another giant (K?).

Inflation is going to take a bite out of food costs, worse than the first 6 months of the year, BY FAR!

Dividends - they always pay it; they always raise it. Their household-name brands ensure a solid market share in the US, and their international market is on track for strong growth.

General Mills is building a solid international presence and has a strong management team. It has recently jumped into the health foods segment of the market to address current trends in food. The primary potential downside for the company is the cost of commodities used in its products, especially corn, but they are much better positioned than their competition (Kelloggs, ConAgra, etc.) to avoid short-term shortages... and their 17.9 price-to-earnings is much cheaper than industry competitors.

General Mills will never be the next hot company. But everyone has to eat. Chances are, somewhere in your cupboard is a bag of Gold Medal flour, Big G cereal or Betty Crocker cake mix. While many investors are fixated on the hare, it's the steady dividend-paying tortoises like General Mills that often win the race in the long term. I have steadily accumulated shares of General Mills over the years to give my portfolio diversification and defense. I think this is a great addition to a portfolio of a Fool who has a long-term horizon and is committed to reinvesting their dividends.

This stock has such a great looking 20 year chart even with recessions thrown in.
