    Proxy item 4 on the voting ballot speaks of ten vote shares, yet does no define why they exist and the pro and con of such shares.

    Even worse, there is no disclosure in the proxy booklet of their meaningfullness.

    I certainly do not understand them and fear that SJM management is trying to pull a fast one on the ordinary shareholders.

    I will abstain and hope others vote accordingly to force better disclosure about this issue.

    DIRECTORS: you should be ashamed of this lack of disclosure and discussion regarding these 10-vote shares.

    Don't try anything slick, like Kellogg. Make what you have, to be the best.

    All of which leads us to coffee, and drinking more of it.

    Why? Because study after study seems to suggest it has significant long-term health benefits. Among a few of the highlights:

    A 2018 study of 500,000 British adults over a full decade showed that coffee drinkers were 10 percent to 15 percent less likely to die from any cause than nondrinkers, possibly, according to the study authors, because "coffee contains more than 1,000 chemical compounds including antioxidants, which help protect cells from damage."
    In 2017, researchers funded by the American Heart Association and the University of Colorado School of Medicine found that every additional cup of coffee people drink each day drops their risk of heart failure or stroke by 8 percent.
    A smaller study from Stanford University suggested that people who drink caffeinated coffee (but not decaf, sorry) live longer, perhaps because the caffeine counteracts naturally occurring inflammation, which is in turn associated with "90 percent of all noncommunicable diseases of aging," according to the study's author.
    Another big study, from the Harvard School of Public Health, which followed 200,000 doctors and nurses over 30 years, found a correlation between increased coffee consumption and lower risk of death from heart disease, stroke, diabetes, neurological diseases---even suicide.
    Finally, drinking "even more coffee" provides an incremental benefit over drinking "more coffee," up to a surprisingly high count, according to a study of almost 20,000 people over 10 years. ("Our findings suggest that drinking four cups of coffee each day can be part of a healthy diet in healthy people," said one of the study's authors.)
    Truly, we could go on and on, but let's be sure to add one of the newest studies, which also suggests a short-term benefit many coffee drinkers might be familiar with: better moods.

    A study of 5,000 European adults suggested that drinking a cup of coffee (containing about 75 milligrams of caffeine) every four hours can result in better moods during the day.

    In our enthusiasm, we should add a caveat: Stop at five cups. Once you get past that, according to a study of nearly 350,000 coffee drinkers from the University of South Australia, you might start to increase the risk of heart disease.

    "Based on our data, six [cups] was the tipping point where caffeine started to negatively affect cardiovascular risk," one of the researchers said.

    Now, back to the New Year and the calendar. Because, as new habits go, resolving to drink a bit more coffee probably isn't a heavy lift for a lot of people.

    It's easy to add to your routine, doesn't cost a lot -- and doesn't require making a major lifestyle change. Plus, for a lot of people, it's actually quite enjoyable.

    So, here's to 2022. Maybe you'll raise a glass of whatever your other favorite beverage might be to toast the new year, tonight.

    But in the morning? Drink a bit more coffee. And start the new year with a resolution you can actually keep.

    Smuckers is a great dividend stock for the long-term. I have been frustrated over the last two years with the stagnation of the stock price, but I have been looking at it from the wrong angle. They sell products people need and want and they have been around for 123 years. Just keep collecting the strong safe dividend and watch your shares accumulate!
  • r
    Perfect stock to own in a crisis. Good well supported dividend, very little price movement, etc. I'm already up 10% today alone because all the scared investors are running to safety like this company.
  • P
    I find it odd that CFO Tucker Marshall was so lucky to sell 10K shares on Dec 17 @ $138.97 ! Hmm ????
  • W
    Great divs.,products, history, and future as a long term investment. rob divot

    You have to love a stock that sells what people love====coffee and peanut butter. If you are snowed in what better lunch than peanut butter and jelly sandwich and hot soup? This stock also pays a good dividend and it runs under the radar of the traders. They are busy trading those tech stocks that don't make money while SJM quietly plods along making money from the traders (as they use the products). Go SJM!!!
  • r
    That 3.56% dividend yield looks as delicious as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with some Folgers coffee.
  • M
    This seems like a gift at this price. Very clean balance sheet with lots of cash, and products that should be selling quickly. I'm dipping my toe in the water tomorrow, and I think I will with KHC as well.

    Up $8+ on what, renewable energy deal?
  • M
    Earnings tomorrow:)

    I don't know the reason, but maybe they think everyone is going to start eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. My favorite is the strawberry, I always keep an extra bottle in the cabinet. Now, should I buy or not.
  • v
    I bought a small position. My tech and fintech stocks need company with this dividend stock. Sold my Motley Fool recommendation since I lost money on that.
  • A
    It's worth buying if it dips under 100 again.

    I'm consolidating my portfolio and have been selling of various holdings for a month or so (locked in some decent returns before seeing this overall decline in share prices).

    I can tell you that SJM will be staying in my portfolio for the long term. I have at least one (smuckers) peanut butter and (smuckers) jelly sandwich a day (sometimes two) and my wife and I go through Folgers coffee like there is no tomorrow! Our pets have also been eating SJM foods as of late.

    I love this company, their products are terrific and I think they're going to be around for as long as civilization does.

    Valuation doesn't look too bad either and ex dividend is incoming on top of the recent decline in share price!
