+ Watch KMB
on My Watchlist
From your nose (Kleenex) to your baby’s bottom (Huggies), from the kitchen (Scott) to the bathroom (Cottonelle), Kimberly-Clark is the leading provider of personal paper products.
as much as this stock is a long term favorite, there are no new outstanding products that I can see on the horizon. Baby diapers? this is a tough business, but the world is expanding and people do need toilet paper!
So your pick boils down to "I agree with the bull thesis but I'm redthumbing because the company does not innovate?" This is a consumer staples company, not Google. They do not need to innovate. They need to execute.
Tough to argue with performance though.Taking KMP v S & P it is a great stock with decent yield and just what any portfolio needs now in what will certainly be some rough sledding.Respectfully,Tom
They are about to spin off their medical paper products division (FQ3) - this will let them concentrate on their core products while creating a very profitable company.And KMB has brand name recognition in 3 products that every household needs/will need: 1. Kleenex: no one says "please hand me a facial tissue." They say "Where's the Kleenex?"2. Kotex: 50% of the population has this need for 25-40 years of their life.3. Depends: eventually, everyone gets old. Most have continence issues.Past performance may not reflect future results, but KMB has had a long, long history of dependability and good dividends.
