Philip Morris' (PM) Q3 results are likely to reflect gains from pricing as well as strength in reduced risk products. The duty-free business might have been affected by the pandemic-led uncertainties.
FedEx (NYSE: FDX) has a 1.3% dividend yield, roughly in line with the S&P 500. Although it increased July's payment by $0.10 per share to $0.75, the board of directors doesn't raise dividends annually. While it's not a bad dividend stock, you can find more appealing options.
Investing in dividend stocks can be an excellent way to generate passive income. Companies that pay dividends tend to be more mature, profit-generating operations that have established lines of business and a loyal base of customers. One such company with a long history of profit generation and dividend payouts is Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO).
