Coca-Cola (KO)

As a mature, global company, we’re not expecting Coca-Cola stock to take off like a rocket — it’s already available in every country on Earth and consumers aren’t likely to double up on drinking their favorite beverages.

But we do look at the power of their hallmark brands — including Sprite, Fresca, Dasani, Minute Maid and Glaceau Smartwater — to inspire respectable returns and customer loyalty, even against the twin tides of inflation and recession.

Coca-Cola went public in 1919 on the New York Stock Exchange at $40 per share. With numerous stock splits, one share of Coca-Cola bought in 1919 would be worth more than $1 million today. And that doesn’t include the dividends the company has returned to investors in an uninterrupted streak since John F. Kennedy was president. The company currently offers a generous dividend yield of 3.25%.

If you’re looking to buy shares in Coca-Cola, you can make the most of the stock’s high dividend potential with Robinhood. With the Robinhood app, you can invest in large companies like Coca-Cola commission-free, with a minimum investment of $1.

Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)

Few companies have done a better job building a stable of well-recognized consumer brands than healthcare giant Johnson & Johnson. The company’s consumer health brands include names such as Tylenol, Motrin, Band-Aid, Rogaine, Nicorette and Listerine.

Now the world’s largest healthcare company, Johnson & Johnson was founded in 1888 and produced revenue of almost $95 billion in 2022. The company has continued to grow its earnings over the past 10 years at a rate of 7.0%, inspiring strong consumer demand, even during recessions.

JNJ announced its 62nd consecutive year of dividend increases in 2023, and now offers an annual dividend yield of 3.03%.

If you’re interested in reaping the rewards of JNJ’s yearly dividend increase, a Robinhood Gold membership might be the best place to start.

Not only does Robinhood Gold feature all of Robinhood’s regular features and services, it ups your investment game by providing more information so you can know the ins and outs of your portfolio.

As part of a Robinhood Gold membership — which is just $5 a month — you’ll have access to professional research from Morningstar and a suite of powerful tools, data and features designed to take your investing to the next level.

With JNJ’s consistently predicted dividend increases, it’s a good time to invest and get some skin in the game of this company.

Procter & Gamble (PG)

Procter & Gamble outpaces even Johnson & Johnson for its track record of dividend growth, raising its payout to shareholders for 68 consecutive years. Its dividend yield currently stands at a plump 2.56%.

The company is a giant in the consumer staples market. P&G’s portfolio of trusted brands includes Bounty paper towels, Crest toothpaste, Gillette razor blades, Duracell batteries and Tide detergent.

Even under tough economic conditions, consumers continue to buy staples like toothpaste, laundry detergent and paper towels. That’s part of the reason why P&G’s well-curated stable of signature products allows the company to deliver regular dividends to investors year after year.

You can grab a piece of P&G’s growing dividend yield commission-free using just your smartphone and the Robinhood app.

With Robinhood, you can trade stocks, cryptocurrency and ETFs, all while having access to Robinhood’s 24/7 customer support. You can feel confident in adding P&G to your portfolio with Robinhood’s team of professionals ready to answer your questions.

All you need to do is download the app, set up your account and start investing.
