Sysco (SYY) largest food distributor in the world!

Dividend Machine for March 12, 2012
            We have been very fortunate to have already profiled a couple of companies that are not only dividend machines but also have provided covered call income opportunities.    This week, however, we have a straight forward dividend machine.  This company has delivered increased dividends every year for 35 years.

            Is it any wonder that as the world’s population grows and as food distribution increases, that the world’s largest food distributor also grows?   What a wonderful world we live in when we get to share in the income of this endeavor.
