+ Watch MMM
on My Watchlist
More than just Post-it Notes and Scotch tape, 3M operates in areas that include health care, industrial, and transportation.
3M is one of the company which is big and has a huge long term potential to grow. very innovative and diversified company.It has made a huge strides in emerging markets. During my trip to India in Oct 2014 I first hand saw the increasing usage of 3 M products, which made me more bullish about this stock and I have tripled my position since then. I started accumulating 3M stock since 2010, but added significantly more last year and this year.The company grew really well on constant currency basis and missed analyst expectations last qtr, but remember currency fluctuations are preodic, the key is company's ability to raise prices. once prices are raised they are rarely reduced and this will benefit for 3M shareholders in long run
RL portfolio pick.
Solid dividend champ in the industrial space. People will always need post it notes right?
Good management and products.
A solid, reliable dividend payer.
the dividends paid by this company have never been cut back it's a steady income provider
Many products with many uses. Consistent revenue
3M's brands are household names in the office supply world. A leading company in a consumer staples
Expected dividend increase
some companies...you want to hold forever...
Because its 3M!!! And because they are one of the most solidly performing conglomerates in the DJIA. Heavy R&D investment, diverse business sectors and solid management make it top-performer for the long-haul.
This will not even be an issue. Our 3Mers have left all new MMMers in good shape unless a young one comes in and destroys something good. We have seen it done to other. To make money you spend it unlike other Da Mining does this
More than just “Post it”. The company is very well diversified with multiple channels which provide it with a very well “diversified portfolio” of services which help it maintain competitive advantage within its industry. Company segments include: Industrial, Safety & Graphics, Electronics & energy, Health care, and customer. As a whole, the company serves a plethora of industries ranging from automobile, electronics, appliance, paper and printing, packaging, food and beverage, construction, clinics and hospitals, pharmaceuticals, among others. 3Ms stock price has appreciated nearly 30% over the last year. I believe their continuous innovation strategy will keep them competitive and ahead of the curve.
There is an ROE of 26.7% with Debt/Equity of .37 and Interest Coverage of 46.25x. Core Growth Rate is 4.6% with room for payout ratio to increase from 49.57% to 82.77%. Based off historical analysis and current DGR, the 30 year CAGR should exceed 10%. My only issue with this stock is in the short term performance as I think it's overpriced with a P/E of 20.50 and a DCF valuation of $91.55 or about 34% more than current price. The DDM valuation though is $163.43 which has a 17.50% margin of safety for dividend growth. I think over time it will outperform the S&P 500 but again in the short term I think it's due a correction and would wait to buy until it comes down to a reasonable P/E of 16-17.
This solid low volatility stock can balance your portfolio. Invest in DDD, WPRT, WFM and other long term volatile yet high gainers, then balance your portfolio with a long term steady growth stock like 3M.
