UL was just recommended as one of the "value" stocks by the fund manager featured in this week's Barron's.
This is one of those stocks you simply buy and forget. Make sure you ask your broker to use its dividend for more shares to compound your holding.
This stock is not cheap and does not offer enough margin of safety in my view. The discount cash flow shows that it worth only $18 if there is no growth. The current price is assuming long term 10% growth rate. With the size of UL, long term 10% growth is not sustainable. if I use 5% as the discounted or growth rate, then the value is still only 24. My DCF is based on 4.58B free cash flow. Anybody uses different assumption to arrive at different result?
