Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly UL is one of the world's largest personal care companies with sales over $61 billion. It provides diversification to the European marketplace and reports that over 50% of sales now come from emerging markets. Cash reserves are estimated to have grown by over $1.3 billion, to exceed $5.4 billion. It trades at 21x earnings, compared to peers over 50x. It pays a strong dividend, backed by a 72% payout ratio. We would buy this with a stop loss at $50, looking to achieve $70 -- upside potential of about 16%. Yield 3.3% (Analysts’ price target is $70.00)

(A Top Pick Apr 21/20, Up 20%) Solid dividend grower. Long-term steady-eddy. Not a grand slam home run, but should provide well above average growth over the long haul.

(A Top Pick Apr 01/20, Up 18%) Most people have 1 to 10 of their products in their house. This was a great way to be defensive and it did quite well for the first 9 months. There has been a sell off recently. They are a great way to play emerging markets. The fiscal stimulus there has not been the same as in the first world. The expectation is that going forward they will return to their old growth. It's an important part of a portfolio.

Really likes it. A defensive holding. Global with a good emerging markets footprint. They have now unified their listing. Cashflow is durable. The dividend is attractive. Trading at 19x forward earnings. A little expensive so wait for pullback.

60% of its revenues come from emerging markets and this is where the growth comes from. They have been increasing exposure to personal care which garners higher margins. They are relatively defensive. (Analysts’ price target is $65.50)

Global conglomerate in consumer packaged goods. More than half of sales come from emerging markets, with significant growth in India and China. Domiciled in the UK. Excellent example of a way to invest in China. International exposure, less volatility than smaller names. Has held up well during Covid. Low dividend increases, but still growing and moving in the right direction.

(A Top Pick Sep 12/19, Up 5%) Global consumer staples and defensive. Has long owned this. They're growing their personal care division, which offers high margins, and accounts for 40% of revenues. Dove, Lux and Tresemme are some of their brands. 60% of their revenues are free emerging markets, which she expects to grow long term. Near term, developed markets will remain strong because of pantry loading and customers gravitate to well-known brands. UL were able to leap from 2 to 60 factories making hand sanitizer. A consistent dividend grower.

Trades at 18-19x earnings and pays a 3.4% dividend. Problem is they have too many brands and need to get rid of the weaker ones. Nestle executes better, managing their brands better and growing better. Nestle is tough competition; also it's easier these days to start a new brand.
