This is bang on his model price of $96.36. It will probably grow from here and he'll have a price of $110. That plus your yield gives you 10%-12%.

Large cap, high quality company that is reasonably valued. If the economy picks up, you can anticipate that their earnings will improve as well. Would benefit from a weaker US$.

One of the leading diversified consumer products companies. Has a wonderful track record of inventions. Large portions of its sales are in the US and there could be a drag because of a weaker US currency.

Historically it was an excellent company. Had some management issues in the last couple of years, which they replaced. The immediate problem for them is that they are the US economy and as it slides into recession, they can't escape.
