Kimberly-Clark Corporation Message Board

  • Why? Down 5 bucks? Investors are scared when the 10 year goes above 2 %? Ridiculous.

    • KMB is a steady growth consumer products company that people were pouring into as a bond substitute. It was up roughly 40% in one year and the earnings growth does not support that kind of move. However, as commodity prices come down (and they are) margins will increase over time. i like the businesses that they are in and this fits in nicely with my other personal care/food/medical stocks which do well under most conditions. Toward this end I own: KMB, CL, ABT, FLO & MRK for growth and income and Biotechs for growth. Once this whole Fed driven low rates and unwinding is over with we will go much higher due to low commodity prices across the board. This is what the last 14 years has been all about. Now that investment has poured into commodities since 2000, we will reap the benefits for the next 15 - 20 years. !982 - 2000 had nothing to do with Reagan or Clinton or any politics, but about low commodity prices.
