A "King" in the consumer goods industry, CL is a solid company which has shown consistent financial strength by offering products for everyday needs and having a strong customer base. The company is well known internationally and remains innovative in their portfolio of products offered which has helped them remain competitive and crème of the crop in their industry for generations!

Well known brands within the Colgate umbrella include but are not limited to: Palmolive, Irish Spring, Ajax, Colgate toothpaste and oral care, Suavitel, fabuloso, among others.

In addition, the company offers pet nutrition products including Hills Science diet and Hills Ideal Balance.

Not only does this company offers goods for every day needs but their products have a good merge between supreme quality and affordability which is a great part of its competitive advantage.

As Warren Buffer may say, this is a stock to hold for a lifetime. Extra bonus: a 2.10% dividend yield which has been raised consecutively for the past 51 years!!!

Needless to say I am bullish on CL for the next 5 yrs and likely beyond.
