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.

Safety is always nice, and a low beta stock that owns brands that people won't stop buying is always nice, plus dividends.

My hope is to beat money market yields and have reasonable price stability. Buying on earnings dip & pre ex-div.
