The Company is a supplier of fast moving consumer goods across Foods and Home and Personal Care categories.
UL is trading at about 12.5x pre-tax earnings and yields 3.6% in dividend payments. UL's ROE has averaged about 30% over the past decade.PG is trading at about 16.5x pre-tax earnings and yields 2.9% in dividend payments. PG's ROE has averaged about 20% over the past decade.Not a huge surprise Buffett was willing to trade away PG shares - they seem a bit overvalued. I might pick up some UL shares to put in my DRIP account in the next few weeks...
Significant amount of assets targeted in the third world; and people, no matter where they are, will always bathe and eat peanut butter.
Div. (Yield) $1.52 (3.5%)

Has been in India over 100 years ! Predecessor company Lever Brothers of England started exporting branded soap there in 1888. Many long established consumer staple brands in emerging markets make Unilever in my mind one of the best Western based plays on mass affluence in emerging markets. Should outperform handily over next few decades. Handy dividend over 3%. Had its management issue over the years, but long established brand penetration in emerging markets are the envy of PG and many others. Needs more love from most North American investors.

April 25 first Q earnings total revenues of 16.23 B solid underling sales growth of 4.9% yr on yr supported by a balanced position movement between volume and price of 2.2% and 2.6% slightly below expections
Best. Euro stock. EVER.Love this company so much: excellent gains in the past couple years I've owned it (despite tons of negative financials in Europe) AND has a steady and strong dividend to boot. Besides the fact that you see their staple products all around the world, from deodorant to peanut butter, this is definitely a "forever" stock you should keep in your portfolio.
Large international diversified company owning many world-wide brands.
As a college aged male, I can assure you the consumer products Unilever makes are much more attractive than proctor and gambles.
Unilever PLC (NYSE: UL) is one of the picks from Europe. The consumer goods giant is a mega-cap and its share price of $38.70 compares to a 52-week range of $30.85 to $39.03. This ADR has a 3.3% dividend yield. We would caution that the analysts covering this ADR have a consensus price target that is just under $38.00 here.
It is a well structure company, with huge success on the emerging markets, buying big companies and with an excellent marketing foundation, I believe cutting edge
Great supply chain management, well positioned to handle what could be constraints in the food supply in the coming years.
Owns many household and food brand names. Earns incredible returns on capital with not much debt, and is reasonably priced.
solid products.global, e.m. make this pick better and sweeter
Stable long term, defensive sector.
A reliable earner, it survived the sell off, so in the short term I think the index will beat it.
