In this video, Motley Fool Analyst Austin Smith talks about three high-yielding stocks that could be great in the long run, Hershey's (NYSE:HSY), Heinz (UNKNOWN:HNZ.DL), and B&G Foods (NYSE:BGS), which have been extremely attractive as far as the dividend is concerned.

Austin shares reasons as to why he would recommend investing in the aforementioned companies. He points out that these companies are more insulated than other consumer goods brands. All the three consumer goods companies heavily work on brand profiles.

Austin is extremely hopeful about the prospects of these consumer goods companies, and believes that they have a long way to go. All this is reflected in their impressive profitability margins. As a parting message, he again stresses the rewarding dividends of these stocks, which will please long term investors.
