Another 2011 pick that is starting to show the wisdom of buying quality companies that pay a dividend.

Exactly the type of stock that will perform well as globalization increases. Cheap staples/consumables for convenience and comfort, simple luxuries, and so on. Increasing middle classes in developing countries will be looking for things like this. On top of that, the company is a proven performer, and has excellent revenue and earnings per-employee versus its peers in the market.

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).

It will outperform because business plan is much better than any other processer in industry. The branded product program is much superior within the industry.
