1 Dividend Stock's Big Bet

The following video is from last week's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with Tim Hanson and Joe Magyer, discussed the latest business news. Diageo is the largest producer of Scotch whisky in the world. The company recently announced that it will spend $1.5 billion on expanding production over the next five years. In this segment, the guys analyze how smart a bet Diageo is making, what it indicates for other distillers such as Beam, and how Diageo's operations match up relative to beverage giants such as Coca-Cola and PepsiCo.
