A high quality European company. Their issue right now is the very strong Euro, it’s a problem. They have decent margins, they are a strong company, they are cutting costs. It’s fairly valued right now, not a sell. Wouldn’t buy.

Global food service company. Food companies are good to own from a defensive standpoint. Tend to be less volatile. Earnings are looking good. 4.78% dividend should be safe.

20% of their revenues are in Asia, so a good way for investors to get access to the Chinese market. Attractive dividend yield and it is rising. As they get rid of their low margin products and focus on their new products, the growth will come.
