I am not sure if this topic will generate any interest/traffic but here goes. When I first joined HO, I mentioned I was recently laid off–still looking! That happened to me also in 2008 when I found Chowhound. A lot of time on my hands! When I landed my new job in 2008, I vowed two things:
- eat better and learn more about food - influenced by CH
- invest/save like crazy, so I could feel a bit more financially secure - influenced by life
I have done that and will continue if I am able to find another employment situation.
Given HO is all about food, I was curious what food/beverage or food related stocks did I have in my portfolio? I should say that I invest with a singular goal. To make money and generate a passive income stream from large companies that pay dividends. I am every bit as passionate about investing as I am about food. Here is what I own. The percentage is the annual dividend yield I receive for the investment.
I would love to hear of any food/beverage related public companies you may know about. Most fast-food companies are public and I already know about those.
