The Emerging Showdown Between 2 Dividend Giants

The following video is from this week's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with Charly Travers, Mike Olsen, and Joe Magyer, discuss the latest business news. Shares of Coca-Cola have beaten the Dow Jones Industrial Average over the past one, two, and five years and is showing no signs of slowing down. The beverage giant recently announced a plan to invest $5 billion in India over the next eight years. In this segment, the guys analyze whether it's a smart bet and what it means for PepsiCo, which already has a strong presence in India.

Even though it pays a steady dividend, shares of Disney aren't exactly trading at a bargain-basement price.
