Unilever PLC (UL-N) is a company with a strong global presence, with 60% of its revenues coming from outside North America. The company's performance is impacted by fluctuating currency exchange rates, especially with the strong US dollar. Despite slow growth, experts see potential in its excellent underlying business and franchise, with a steady dividend yield. The company is expected to continue enhancing shareholder value through M&A activities and has a strong management team.

60% of revenues come outside North America, which are currencies that are fading against the strong US dollar which rose along with interest rates. If the USD falls, then the S&P could underperform (they've outperformed the past 10 years). UL needs a lower USD to increase earnings. He still owns it. Pays a near-4% dividend, so he's holding onto it and waiting.

BUY
Unilever PLC

Pays a 3.5% dividend. This is the way to play emerging markets, from which they derive 55% of revenues. The dividend will grow over time.

UL vs. NSRGY Two quality names that have performed well over time, but relatively expensive. He prefers Danone, #1 in both dairy and plant-based, cheaper. Over the last decade, Danone has maintained its #1 position but has lost market share, stock's not up at all, slow to innovate. UL has outperformed Danone in the past decade. Real catalyst is new CEO who's made sweeping changes that will boost top and bottom line growth.

BUY
Unilever PLC
It's has lagged, but is a great consumer company with a strong presence in emerging markets. There is an activist investors on the board, so expect big changes at UL. It's a phenomenal company that will raise its dividend beyond inflation for years.

DON'T BUY
Unilever PLC
They have too many brands, and overextended themselves. Not managed well, though managers are addressing issues. Little earnings growth short-term. Commodity input costs are another worry.

TOP PICK
Unilever PLC
Underperformer over the last few years. Well-known brands. Consistent, consumer company. Phenomenal presence in EM. Current valuation is 12x earnings. Share buybacks, niche acquisitions, growing dividend. Yield is 4%. (Analysts’ price target is $56.00)

BUY
Unilever PLC

Quality company that he currently owns in portfolio. One of the largest companies in consumer package business. Strong dividend yield (4-5%) provides element of safety. Expects company to be able to pass on inflation costs to consumers. Would recommend buying.

WAIT
Unilever PLC
She's owned this for many years. It gives emerging market exposure which account for 60% of sales. Their growth has lagged, because the food division is lower growth while Covid has made growth uneven by country. This trades at a discount to Nestle, but offers higher growth. Making an acquisition will raise their debt, which is a concern. She's waiting and seeing as they sell their lower-growth businesses. They could sell their food business. Pays around a 3.7% dividend.

PAST TOP PICK
Unilever PLC
(A Top Pick Dec 14/20, Down 5%) Some of their product categories are price-sensitive. Their exposure to emerging markets will see later on strong secular growth than developed markets. EM markets have had a tough time containing Covid, so their recoveries have lagged, impacting UL. Also, higher costs in transportation and raw materials is another headwind. UL has raised prices to offset these issues, but also some volumes have softened. They are re-positioning by selling weaker divisions and expanding further into personal care, but this will all take time. Pays over a 3% dividend.

DON'T BUY
Unilever PLC
UL vs. NSRGY Challenged. Mature consumer staples businesses are trying to hold onto market share, revenue growth isn't great, financial engineering helps the bottom line. Prefers Nestle. Buying the leader is often better than buying the catch-up trade. Nestle is holding or gaining market share in 60% of its categories. Exposed to high growth areas like pet food, nutrition, and coffee.

TOP PICK
Unilever PLC
It has been range-bound since 2017. There are catalysts going forward: E-commerce and they are focusing on their high growth segments. The dividend is just under 4% so you should buy it now. (Analysts’ price target is $59.00)

WEAK BUY
Unilever PLC
UL vs. PG Canadians can't ignore the Chinese and Indian markets. They do have political risk, but they will be delivering meaningful prosperity, so ignore that at your peril. PG had a very tough time after the global financial crisis. Still a great company and continues to do well, has outperformed UL. UL is going through changes, and these could lead to outperformance over PG. If you want safe and steady bond proxies, these are the types of companies you want to be thinking about.
