In 2019, PepsiCo sued some Indian farmers based in the western state of Gujarat for cultivating the FC5 potato variety, which has a lower moisture content required to make snacks such as potato chips. Withdrawing the lawsuits the same year, the New York-based company said it wanted to settle the issue amicably.
With that firmly in mind, let's take a look at three very recent dividend raises from a trio of top-flight companies in their respective fields -- Nike (NYSE: NKE), PepsiCo (NASDAQ: PEP), and McCormick (NYSE: MKC). In what has to qualify as a nice holiday gift, Nike is playing Santa with an 11% hike to its quarterly payout.
