This has a remarkably consistent and remarkably high ROC in about the 12% range. He would have expected it to be lower. Valuation may be a little bit rich, but not at the point where he would be getting out.

UFS-N vs. KMB-N. UFS-N has a nice balance sheet that is well protected and a dividend north of 4%. It is a well run company with a defensible market share when you look at some of the fast growth markets they have been trying to address like Asia. They have been keen to ramp up their exports to Asia. He would refer UFS-N at these valuations.

Very consistent, improving return on capital up to 12%. It is a good time to get into it. It is a little rich, however.

Over the last couple of years, they have been working hard on the internal workings of their business. Have been reorganizing, cutting costs and rationalizing. This is as a result that their business is a slow growth one. Thinks they have done a good job in terms of reorganizing. The difficulty is not with what management has done, but is the price that the market is looking for him to pay, close to 20X earnings. He doesn’t understand why a slow growth company like this would demand a 20 multiple.

Great company and wonderful brands. Spinning off their healthcare division, and doing so at a wonderful valuation. Going to have a lot of cash which he sees as being used for share buybacks. This is a company with which you can sleep well at night. If it fell off 5%-10% more, it would be one he would consider.

Has a model price of $93.12, a negative 12%. If there was to be any pullback, certainly to the $84 level, he would be a Buyer. You could buy half a position now and hope for cheaper prices to get the balance.

Personal care products with a 2.47% dividend. Trades at a slight discount to the market. Fairly slow grower and defensive so there is nothing that gets him really excited. Would prefer Colgate (CL-N) or Clorox (CLX-N) for more growth if looking for a defensive holding.

Used to be a combination of a producer and a consumer marketing company. No longer produces pulp, etc. Has been hurt with average buyers of diapers and Kleenex trading down to private labels. Once the economy starts to pick up and consumer sentiment is better, it will start to move up.

(Market Call Minute.) Negative pretty much on everything that has to do with forest products and the paper industry. Huge oversupply and under demand.

Spinning off the pulp and paper side of the business. Would like to see the balance sheets after that is completed. Model price is about $57.25.

Spinning off their forest products and fine paper operations. Likes the big-name holes hold products. A defensive holding. Very solid company.

Would stay clear of Canadian forestry at this time, but American ones could be good.

Not happy with the trade dispute with the US and doesn't see an early end to it. There is room for pulp/paper prices to go up but have chosen to play it through Kimberly-Clark which doesn't face the trade problem.
