Gets an enormous amount of its earnings outside of North America. As the US dollar got stronger, the money it brought back was worth less. A recession resistant product.

Has been a relatively safe place to be. Supposedly one of the great China stories and one of the most significant areas to play the global brand. Thinks it's going to be tied to the markets. In terms of upside, there are so many areas that will give you a better yield.

Been very successful over the last couple of years because of international exposure, especially in China. Also benefited with the decline in the US$. Some question now as to whether the great growth overseas is going to continue. Dollar is becoming stronger so earnings will not be as strong.

Trading at about 17X forward earnings, that is not nearly as cheap as many other companies. You won't be hurt by this long-term. Have been hurt by higher costs. Sugar is a huge cost factor for their products.

Return over the last 10 years has only been 4%. A lot of growth in revenue recently because of the weaker US$ creating some currency gains. Concerned that bottled water margins are probably lowering. Good price.

Has a positive long-term uptrend in a market that is not really positive long-term. In the last 2 months it sold off with the rest of the market from a new high in January. Now consolidating. If it broke through the recent highs of $60, that would be a bullish signal.

Coca-Cola (KO-N) and Pepsi (PEP-N) are leaders and are attractive. Both are supplying a growing consumer base overseas. Prefers Pepsi a little bit better because it is less focused on soft drinks. Down side. If this market takes off, a lot of investors hiding in these stocks will sell and they will under perform.

Doesn't particularly like the Company. With young people getting Type II diabetes, it is getting pulled from schools. The stock is a play on a weaker US dollar as most of their sales are outside of the US. If the US dollar is strong, he buys Pepsi (PEP-N) which is more US$ centric.
