    Bill George: As consumer giants struggle, Unilever rises above the pack

    Denise Morrison's sudden retirement as CEO of Campbell Soup CPB highlighted the struggles that all consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies are having in today's rapidly changing markets. Since Paul Polman assumed the helm as CEO in January 2009, Unilever has risen above the pack with a long-term vision and consistently strong performance. In many ways, Unilever is the epitome of PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi's model of "Performance with Purpose." As consistently strong as its performance has been the past five years under Nooyi's leadership, even PepsiCo's stock price has struggled in the last two years.

    Kraft Heinz Growth Depends on Mayochup or M&A

    As of Monday, credit analysts at Moody’s Investors Service were just beginning to feel optimistic about the packaged-food giant. Since the 2015 merger that brought together Kraft Foods and H.J. Heinz, the company’s private equity managers have extracted more cost savings than expected and retired some debt. Now, with the merger integration largely complete, Moody’s changed its outlook to positive from stable, saying it expects Kraft Heinz’s debt-to-Ebitda ratio to fall “sustainably below” 4 this year, down from 5.2 when the deal first closed.

    [$$] Kraft Heinz Prepares to Take On Hellmann’s With a New Mayonnaise and ‘Mayochup’

    Hellmann’s maker Unilever PLC and Kraft Heinz Co., which owns Miracle Whip, are cutting prices and slinging out new concoctions as they battle changing eating habits, an array of new competitors and each other. The two, which together account for more than 80% of U.S. mayonnaise sales, are duking it out because they are at risk of losing shelf space to faster-growing rivals.

    Campbell’s Strategy Comes Under Scrutiny After CEO Departure

    Denise Morrison was the biggest champion of Campbell Soup Co.’s yearslong push into fresh and refrigerated foods, telling investors earlier this year that management was urgently pressing to transform Campbell into a health-oriented snacking company. Ms. Morrison’s abrupt departure on Friday as U.S. soup sales and Campbell’s fresh-food business falter suggests that the strategy flopped. Campbell could stay the course and try to build on the fresh-food business Ms. Morrison assembled over the past six years.

    Why Stock Buybacks Aren't All Bad

    Were you shocked by the news that 500 of America’s largest public companies will distribute $600 billion via stock buybacks in 2018? In 2004, companies repurchased $230 billion in stock, and throughout the history of the markets, repurchases have been a common strategy employed by large public companies. While there’s no shortage of questions surrounding them, there’s probably none as common as how buybacks really benefit companies: Are they a shortsighted strategy that help corporations hit EPS targets but damage long-term health, or are they a signal of corporate confidence and a way for companies to use their excess cash for something good?

    [$$] Human rights activists name and shame giant companies

    have been criticised for a lack of transparency on human rights issues in their supply chain after failing to engage with a government and investor-backed group. The Corporate Human Rights Benchmark — a non-profit based in London and New York that is backed by asset managers and pension funds including Aviva Investors, APG and Nordea, as well as the Swiss, Dutch and British governments — is to release a report next week. It warns, however, that a quarter of groups it has targeted in the clothing, agriculture and extractive industries have failed to engage, ignoring letters from an investor coalition that oversees $5tn in assets as well as invitations from CHRB.
