Has been more of a defensive stock. A little rich at 15X earnings. Won’t grow much with a growing US economy.

Consumer staples has not done as well as other areas. Did better going through 2008 and into 2009 because they are more defensive but haven't benefited from the rebound. At this point they're much more interesting. He would prefer Procter & Gamble (PG-N).

Large consumer staples stocks but also have a small pet food business. For years it has been the most expensive in its sector because it had the best organic growth rate and its exposure to emerging markets. Try to get it in the low $60's.

Lots of upside. Lots of international exposure. Nice, conservative company. His Fair Market Value is over $100, but he doesn't expect it to reach this.

2% dividend yield. A defensive holding. Has a lot of overseas operations, so is a hedge against a weaker US$. Have pricing power.

With less concern about inflation and less concern about rising rates and a little weaker economy, money is looking for these more stable earning stocks. Expect to see an increase in the price/earnings multiple over the next year. Not a ton of risk and a great core holding.

More of a defensive stock. Has done well in down markets. Technical structure is really strong. Suspects when the overall market makes a bit of a bottom, investors could be taking profits.

Probably a good defensive play, but he looks for mispriced assets. This would not qualify for his portfolio. Has a model price of $44 which is a negative 26/27% differential.

There is an uptrend in place. Likes US stocks at the moment. This is a place you want to be.
