10 Best Dow Dividend Stocks for 2012

9. Coca-Cola

Liability Adjusted Cash Flow Yield: 3.2%

Dividend Yield: 2.84%

LACFY/10-Year Treasury Yield: 1.55

Return on Invested Capital: 19%

The king of cola has some big-time backers, famously among them is Warren Buffett. But let's not forget about the small-time backers. When I visited Honduras last year, I asked my cab driver to speak for her country: Coke or Pepsi?

She laughed in a no-brainer kind of way -- Coke (but she did admit that Pepsi was making inroads).

Coca-Cola (KO - Get Report) derives more than 75% of sales from outside the United States. If you're looking for diverse global sales and exposure to multiple currencies, this is a great company to own. But the stock isn't cheap and still hasn't recovered to its frothy peak, recorded way back in 1998.
