    Well, it's a 4% increase. Not great, but I'll take it. Hoping that future increases are a little larger.

    I"ll take it.

     

    This is a pretty fat yield, for a company that is hopefully re-entering growth mode. That bodes well for a healthy total return over the next few years when combining appreciation with this yield.

    I have owned PEP for over 10 years, have it on a constant DRIP. This is a great company, always good for Dividend increases. I am constantly amazed at their slow growth, but hope things will pick up.
    I think they are overdue for a split, or to break out beverages from
    snacks. Whatever, I am not about to jump out.
