Philips is transitioning from an industrial conglomerate into 2 separate operating companies focused on HealthTech & Lighting.
No matter what happens to the economy, are Boomers going to stop buying CPAP machines and Sonicare toothbrushes? I don't think so. Based in Netherlands, nice annual dividend, substantial earnings growth ahead and low FWD PE.
Well I will begin by stating this is another great European company which has exposure to the USA. Hard to believe Jim Cramer said do not invest in European companies. As if you do not invest in great companies when they are beaten down in share price you will most likely miss out on a great deal of profit in the future. Whilst the company is undervalued you receive a great dividend whilst you wait for Philips to go back to a more normal share price. As for the company itself it has three main areas of business including medical, lighting, and consumer goods. Therefore its exposure to areas where Samsung and Apple are predominant Philips really is quite capable of dealing with this and still able to make a decent profit. Buying shares in Philips is a buy now and forget about for several years whilst earning a fat juicy dividend in shares as long as you hold the shares.
Increased demand for medical instrumentation.
Good times are a coming.
Solid management who are never afraid to make tough decisions on strategy and portfolio of products. Will ride the coming LED wave and continue to perform well in the medical equipment space.
Stock should recover as European market recovers. Will probably track that market closely.
Bargain buy at this price.
THEY ARE CUTTING TOO MANY JOBS. GIVING A FALSE PICTURE OF THEIR TRUE FINANCIAL STATUS.
Sovereign debt crisis and profit warning for lighting business have hammered this diversified Dutch blue chip that currently pays a generous dividend of more than 4%.
Significantly oversold because of recent problems with TV division and due to recent investments in the business. Solid company, strong dividend, reasonable payout ratio target and history.
low PEG, strong price uptrend
They're huge in Europe and Asia. They have a terrific product line and they're diversified. Anything from auto lighting to consumer electronics to shavers.
