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.
