Investors have always been interested in stocks that pay dividends, but lately, low interest rates on bonds and other fixed-income investments have made solid dividend payers even more valuable. Among the most promising dividend stocks in the market is Archer Daniels Midland (NYSE: ADM ) , and one big reason is that it's one of the few exclusive companies to make the list of Dividend Aristocrats. To become a member of this elite group, a company must have raised its dividend payouts to shareholders every single year for at least a quarter-century. Only a few dozen stocks manage to make the cut, and those that do tend to stay there for a long time.

3. Tyson Foods finally buys Hillshire Brands in big meat merger
How much does a Ball Park frank cost? It doesn't matter any more for Tyson Foods (NYSE: TSN ) , because it's buying the hot dog and Jimmy Dean sausage maker, also known as Hillshire Brands (NYSE: HSH ) . Both companies announced the mergers on their websites Monday, but the stocks moved in opposite directions.

One case where the SEC did not seem to follow through with its oversight duties due to cost concerns involved a bribery scandal at Tysons Foods (NYSE: TSN ) . Even after the company admitted in 2011 to the longtime bribing of veterinarians in a Mexican poultry-processing plant, the SEC had not brought charges against any Tysons employees. Why? It seems the cost of going forward with the prosecution of foreign witnesses would be just too high.

While the USDA's conclusion of 5 weeks maximum reduced consumption will certainly be a relief to investors with exposure to the Asian poultry market -- namely, Yum, Tyson (TSN), and McDonald's (MCD) investors -- I think that relying too closely on the Italian consumers' experience with H5N1 to interpret the reaction of Chinese consumers to H7N9 might potentially be a disastrous assumption.
