We need what they sell
good numbers to buy after a little dip for this solid brand
Buy this dip.
market corrected, will shoot up.
Took a ~5% slide yesterday.
Punished more than it deserves
Although not a sexy company and definitely not a company that will make you rich overnight they are a solid company with quality management. I have no idea if the iPhone 21S will be a huge hit 35 years down the road from now but I'm pretty sure people will still use soap to clean their bodies and laundry. There's a pretty good chance that men will still shave 35 years down the road and people will still have children that use diapers. I'm not looking to beat the S&P every year or have wonderful hidden stock advice at neighborhood BBQ's. I'm looking to put my children through college and retire comfortably while collecting a nice inflationary beating dividend. I'm a simple man and easily pleased.
Gross Margins=50%, Net Margins=15%, your money is safer here than in Gov't Bonds
They are a dividend "aristocrat" and therefore one of the few companies you can actually bank on continued profitability and healthy, consistent dividends.
One of the best companies in the world
The company is ahead of plan on its restructuring program (its goal is to see $10 billion in savings by 2016). Industry consolidation will result in fewer competitors, and that should lead to a more favorable price/mix. Lower commodity costs and a weaker dollar should help increase margins. Worth 1/3 of a position here, with more money being added if we get a strong sell-off in February/March on debt ceiling woes…
I like Pringles.
Buying for real portfolio as a safe play.
