+ Watch ATR
on My Watchlist
An international company that designs, manufactures and sells consumer product dispensing systems.
Slow and steady wins the race. Maker of convenience pumps and packaging for all kinds of consumer products. Very shareholder friendly. Outperform.
Niche market leader - makes dispensing products for anything from deodorants to nasal sprays to sunscreen to Gatorade to prescription drugs. I think the company can grow at more than 2x global GDP (not bad for a packaging company) as it helps its 5,000 customers differentiate their products and comply with various regulatory and safety measures. Add on a steady and growing dividend and share repurchases and this should be a steady, if sleepy, outperformer.

Dispensing systems for drinks to drugs, these guys will always have a market. Strong dividend.
Everyone uses their product. Furthermore, a growing middle class in china will hopefully contribute to their bottom line. I like the story, and the number. I did bought this when it drops.
New screen; from 3 stars three months ago, 4 stars two months ago, and five stars this month
This company steadily beats earnings and is a good safe play in a wild market.
Testing a portfolio of companies that start with the letter "A".
Aptar Group “ATR” is a manufacturer of a broad range of innovative dispensing systems (pumps, closures and aerosol valves) which are used in the products of some of the largest marketers of fragrance/cosmetic, pharmaceutical, food/beverage and household goods in the world. ATR has significant amounts of operations outside the United States. Sales in Europe compromise approximately 60% of sales with the majority of these products manufactured in Europe. Other foreign regions include Asia and South America which comprise about 10% of sales.ATR’s operations are subject to some significant trends that should boost sales for the foreseeable future. One of these trends is the conversion of metal non-dispensing caps and lids to more convenient plastic dispensing caps and lids. Gone are the days of passing the new ketchup bottle to the strongest person at the table to see if he/she can unscrew the metal cap. Today you can open a new ketchup container by just popping the plastic dispensing lid with your thumb, squeezing out the ketchup on your hamburger, and pushing the lid closed all using just one hand. Baby boomers are just starting to reach retirement age. As the boomers start to age they will purchase more and more personal care products to try and retain youthful looks. Also, as emerging countries become more prosperous, their populations will purchase more personal care, food/beverage and household products.One area of promising growth for ATR is the pharmaceutical industry. Major drug companies have several blockbuster drugs coming off patent in the next few years. One way to extent the patent on some of these drugs is to change the delivery system. This can include changing from pills and syringes to more convenient systems such as dispensing pumps and metered dose aerosol valve systems.Risks associated with ATR include a sharp rise in price of plastic resin which is the main raw material of ATR’s products and a slowdown in the world economy.
