HRL isn't setting the world on fire, but it fits nicely into my dividend growth portfolio as increasing its dividend is something they've been very good at. The payout ratio is still low but not as low as it used to be. So, I think its correct to say that the increasing payout ratio has partially funded recent dividend increases.

I also am concerned with slower growth but I do think recent acquisitions like Planters will payoff for them in the long run. Most of their future growth does depend on their many acquisitions paying off as they diversify into other related and unrelated food products to complement their core brands.

Thank you @FerdiS for the Hormel review, which I am long since 1996. I think the dividend increases will be small for the next couple of years to pay off the Planters purchase. I last added shares when it was in the $40 range.

@Yields4Travel -- thanks for commenting... that's a long time to have owned $HRL! Lots of dividends over that many years! Congratulations!

@FerdiS And three stock splits! Positioning the portfolio for the fourth stock split whenever that will be, but it will happen since the Hormel Foundation owns 47% of the company.

FerdiS - Just $HRL for me...a long time hold. I keep reviewing it to see if it's time to move on to a better yield, but I can't seem to let go. It's in my ROTH, so it looks like I'll just let it run. Probably best to not overthink it!

@Nate the Great -- $HRL has performed rather poorly over the past year or so. Concerns include increased input costs without commensurate price increases. That should come near-term and I think the stock will be fine long-term. We'll see how it goes...
@FerdiS Thank you for covering the divvy world for ALL! Everyone who follows you on here really appreciates it! :-)

@magenta17 -- I appreciate your comment and kind words! Thanks!
@FerdiS 😉
Hormel bought out House of Tsang a few yrs back.
Very happy that they did.
A very good Teriyaki sauce that I have been using for much longer.

Hormel now partially funds my purchase.

@Ron1634 -- that's a cool way to think about the dividend! I do, too, sometimes. For example, $VZ pays some of my cell phone bills.
Thanks for the updates. Year end is creeping up fast. Keep the
increases coming. We appreciate it !

@AlieGee -- I can't believe it's December already!
@FerdiS I know.....Tell me about it ! It's crazy. Doesn't seem like all that long ago when many were shaking in their boots about Y2K.

BTW, the older one gets, the faster it goes. Sorry if I ruined your day
but it's a fact....
