E Daily Stock Pick: Flowers Foods

A portfolio of stocks I've been building since September 3, 2019, named Volio, will eventually hold 52 dividend dogs. Volio is the fifth portfolio I've built (at a one dividend dog per-week pace) since 2014. Five portfolios = V for Volio!

Today I'm reviewing the fifth of five consumer defensive sector stocks poised to join my Volio folio this week. This could be my thirty-eighth pick for Volio!

That consumer defensive sector includes twelve industries all related to providing convenient packaged goods we've just gotta have. Industries like: beverages, brewed, soft, or distilled; confectioners; discount stores; education & training; farm products; food distribution; grocery stores; household & personal products; packaged goods; tobacco.

My subject today is a packaged foods maker named, Flowers Foods Inc. Its trading ticker symbol is FLO. This is my fourth report on Flowers Foods Inc. It was previously reviewed for Volio in September 2019, then January 3, and March 11.

Flowers Foods Inc is an American company producing bakery food for retail and foodservice across the United States.

The product portfolio includes fresh bread, buns, rolls, snack cakes, and tortillas. The company distributes to supermarkets, convenience stores, and restaurants.

The operating segments are divided into direct store delivery, which provides fresh bread, tortillas, cakes, and rolls; and the warehouse segment, which distributes fresh snack cakes and frozen bread and rolls.

Key brands are Nature's Own, Whitewheat, Cobblestone Bread, Wonder, and Tastykake.

The company was formerly known as Flowers Industries and changed its name to Flowers Foods, Inc. in 2001.

Flowers Foods, Inc. was founded in 1919 and is headquartered in Thomasville, Georgia.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend equities or funds like Flowers Foods Inc:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Those three basic keys best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money.
