swiss chocolate maker.
i've heard a lot of horrifying things from the far left about how evil and powerful nestle is, which probably equates to huge profits and sustainable growth (or at least cash flow) for shareholders.
Nestle is a well run company. They've been profitable since like 1854 or something. They are currently priced like a low-growth consumer staple company with no growth catalyst.However, Nestle is the king of single-serving coffee in Europe with their Nespresso system. It is awesome coffee, much better than Keurig or any other single-serving system. As this goes global, expect significant earnings growth for Nestle.
Great diversified food/bottled water company. Respectable dividend and consumer staple makes it recession proof. Reinvest dividend and hold until commodity prices drop
The world is now in the early stages of a growing food crisis and it’s probably going to get much worse before crop yields become abundant again. But don’t go looking to plunge into this bull market right now. I’d wait before trying to catch what ultimately will be a falling knife.Keep some powder dry ahead of the next correction in commodities. When the next hit comes, buy the grains, the fertilizers (seed companies) and soft agricultural commodities. The world has gone almost commodity-crazy since late 2010. But as you’re waiting for the next buying opportunity, you might want to take a look at Nestle ADS (OTC: NSRGY). Nestle ADS has gained a cumulative 27.5% and is approaching a 52-week low on the Zurich Stock Exchange. The stock pays 53% more than benchmark Swiss government bonds (Nestle yields 2.9%) and earns more than $200 million in gross sales every single day. The market has punished Nestle over the last several weeks because of a cocoa export-ban in the Ivory Coast - the world’s largest grower of cacao. Plus, other input costs for Nestle’s products like sugar, coffee and milk have also increased. The market is discounting a profit-squeeze for the world’s largest food company.I don’t doubt the ongoing food-price blitz will take its toll on Nestle. Yet many investors also underestimate the company’s large commodity hedging program and its numerous commodity farms worldwide. But the way I see it, Nestle at this low price also offers a hedge when commodity prices take a hit over the next few weeks or months. As commodities sink, Nestle should mount a smart rally - a commodity hedge, plus a 3% dividend makes Nestle a smart place to park some money right now.
They are buying up all the freshwater in the world and selling it back to us for more than gasoline costs and without the government oversight to make sure its clean. This is a good long term stock and recession resistant because they sell items everyone needs no matter what the economic environment.
Large growth opportunities in emerging markets, with the right strategyof focusing on how to make food healthier for future generations.
Nestle is a truly global company with multiple brands in food, water, cosmetics and many other basic commodities. Swiss base with books in CHF should provide additional hedge to the USD.A true buy and hold stock. Own it since 1/2007 at $34.61.
What's to say? The world eats food. Analysts love it. $12 off the 52 week high...could go lower. A tidy dividend. This is a core stock if ever there was one. A neophyte like myself with family in Zurich can put 2+2 and know that Nestles adds up to at least 6!
I see no reason its recent better-than-the-market performance won't maintain, now that the market overall is apt to move up (right?) over next few years.
EVIL COMPANY!! Such companies with such evil intentions will ultimately shut down....This is a century of the common people..... and WE will win...
This blue chip stock has a strong portfolio of products, with a major exposure towards emerging markets.
Evil elements:The problem of illegal and forced child labor is rampant in the chocolate industry, because more than 40% of the world’s cocoa supply comes from the Ivory Coast, a country that the US State Department estimates had approximately 109,000 child laborers working in hazardous conditions on cocoa farms. In 2001, Save the Children Canada reported that 15,000 children between 9 and 12 years old, many from impoverished Mali, had been tricked or sold into slavery on West African cocoa farms, many for just $30 each.Nestle, the third largest buyer of cocoa from the Ivory Coast, is well aware of the tragically unjust labor practices taking place on the farms with which it continues to do business. Nestle and other chocolate manufacturers agreed to end the use of abusive and forced child labor on cocoa farms by July 1, 2005, but they failed to do so.Nestle is also notorious for its aggressive marketing of infant formula in poor countries in the 1980s. Because of this practice, Nestle is still one of the most boycotted corporations in the world, and its infant formula is still controversial. In Italy in 2005, police seized more than two million liters of Nestle infant formula that was contaminated with the chemical isopropylthioxanthone (ITX).Additionally, violations of labor rights are reported from Nestle factories in numerous countries. In Colombia, Nestle replaced the entire factory staff with lower-wage workers and did not renew the collective employment contract.From http://karim.gnn.tv/blogs/11333/Report_The_14_Most_Evil_Corporations
