A wonderful company, slow growth, very expensive and a low dividend yield. He wouldn’t own it. There are other areas of the market that are much more enticing. Dividend yield of 3.4%.

A consumer staple name, which will probably be affected by a couple of things. Since April it has been having lower lows and lower highs. It has broken below its 200-day moving average, and the 200-day moving average is starting to turn downwards. Trading at a forward PE of 20X earnings. Growth rate is probably mid-single digits, which gives it 4X on a PEG ratio basis, which is not cheap.

This is a yesterday stock. It is almost 100% beverages with the vast majority being sugar water, a market that is in decline. They don’t have the diversification that PepsiCo (PEP-N) has, and he prefers PepsiCo.

Something that he feels has staying power is the re-franchising of the bottlers. Six-seven years ago, there was a real disconnect between corporate selling the concentrates and the bottlers, and distribution was not working well. The company took them all in and fixed them. Bottling is a capital intensive business, so they are now going to push it back out and refranchise. There will be an increase in margins and less capital intensity. Dividend yield of 3.04%.

Largest beverage company in the world, strong brand-driven assets that make competition coming in very difficult. He just entered this trade as it broke out from 2015 highs. Fantastic company with a good yield. The space is doing very well.

Coca-Cola (KO-N) or PepsiCo (PEP-N)? The key difference is that Pepsi has a more established non-beverage business. Coke has not done as well, but has a more established bottling business, with about 15% of business coming from this. It is a low margin high capital business and there are rumours that they will be getting out of this. Would prefer Dr. Pepper Snapple Group (DPS-N) which has about a 10th of the market share of these 2, so there is an opportunity to steal market share.

Coca-Cola (KO-N) or PepsiCo (PEP-N) for a long-term investment? He doesn’t care for either. His choice would be Dr. Pepper Snapple (DPS-N). This company generates one 3rd of its revenue from bottling, a capital intensive business. They took a 16% stake in Keurig Mountain which has really struggled. Carbonated beverage consumption is going down.

Short? He doesn’t short individual stocks. This is trading at 21X forward earnings with the 10 year average of about 17X. A bit pricier at this point, especially with its growth rate. Also, their revenues are 60% from outside of the US. There would be some headwinds if the US$ continues to move higher. Doesn’t particularly like the name at this point. 3% dividend is pretty safe.

If you buy shares in companies that keep growing earnings then you will make money. He thinks they will be selling more of their product in 10 years. He prefers Doctor Pepper/Snapple because it is smaller. It is a potential take-over candidate.

Trading at a pretty high valuation. 19.5X forward earnings, but more important its 6.5% growth rate is pretty weak. 55% of revenues are coming from outside of North America.

This has been range bound longer than the S&P has. Because of this, you treat it accordingly and buy it when it is in the $39 area and sell somewhere around the mid-$40.

(Market Call Minute.) There are better companies to buy within the consumer space. However, they are participating in the growth in emerging markets.

Really hasn’t been a great performer for a long, long period of time. The problem is that they are selling sugar water, and people are drinking less and less of that. They make $.005 a can, and that is getting more and more challenging. They got in the water business in a big way, which is turning out to be a bit of a problem with more and more municipalities pushing back against bottled water.

There are worse places to be than in this. Growth has slowed and there are not a lot of margins going forward, but they continue to increase the dividend and buy back shares, and probably 10 years from now it will be double from where it is today. 3.2% dividend yield.

A global company with strong brands. Has cash and pays a relatively decent dividend. It is very well positioned in emerging markets, so not a lot of room to expand. Also, the category they are in is declining in developed markets.
