Dr. Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) might be worth a look as well.

For Q1 (ending 3/31/11) YoY: sales were up 7%, net income was up 28%, and quarterly dividend was just increased to $.32 per share for a 3% dividend yield.

Sales have been decreasing the last couple of years, so maybe the 0.5%, 0.3%, and 0.0% growth the market is expecting is reasonable. But if Q2 2011 sales come in ahead of Q2 2010 the way Q1 did, it could look compelling. And given the stock's recent run up since mid-February (up from $34 in the last three months, or 24%), apparantly others think so as well. Plus, you get a 3% dividend while you wait for the thesis to play out.
