(A Top Pick Nov 10/17, Up 8%) They make candies and chocolates. They have 40% in emerging markets where there will be growth, unlike developed markets which will be flat. In recent years they are reducing costs and widening margins. They've done this, so they are now improving their topline. You want more defensive names in this stage of the cycle and MDLZ is a good choice, long-term.

Likes it as secular play for growth in emerging markets, with 40% of revenues there, and 60% outside North America. Starting to see some improvement, but watch the strength of the US dollar which pressure EM. Got a new CEO in December, who is reinvesting the business to grow the topline.

(A Top Pick July 12, 2017. Down 0.3%). 40% of their revenues are from emerging markets, which are buying more snacks. Emerging markets’ economies over the past year have been weaker but they are picking up. Developed economies are more mature and it is harder to increase business in them in this category. Among food products, the snacking category has the highest growth. Their brands include Cadbury, Oreo and Ritz Crackers: household names. She would buy at this level.

(A Top Pick June 12/17. Down 6%.) This tends to move in a bit of a channel, and seems to find support somewhere in the $38-$39 range. It is in consumer staples, a sector that normally does very well in the summer, but this year didn't. It reported last night with pretty good numbers and the stock was up about 5% today. His view is that this could get back into the $44-$45 area, and then he will get out.

About 25% of revenues come from the US and about 40% is from emerging markets. The stock hasn’t done that well this past year, which is why it is a Top pick. As disposable income increases in emerging markets, it is going to increase the sale of more packaged foods. They are the global leading snack food manufacturer. Have been building out their footprint in the emerging markets. The last year has been difficult with a strong US$. We are starting to see improving economic movements in those markets. The long-term trend of increasing consumption of packaged foods and goods plays into this company very well. Dividend yield of 2.1%. (Analysts’ price target is $49.50.)
