    Nestle and Unilever Raise Prices Without Stunting Growth

    Nestle SA and Unilever surprised investors with strong starts to the year, reporting first-quarter sales growth that handily topped analysts’ estimates. Unilever rose as much as 4.2 percent in Amsterdam as Nestle traded as much as 1.4 percent higher in Zurich. The companies delivered a counterpoint to the cost-cut-driven performance of U.S. rival Kraft Heinz Co., which has slumped since a profit warning and asset writedown in February -- about two years after it made an unsuccessful approach to take over Unilever.

    The maker of KitKat chocolate bars and Perrier waters reported revenue of SFr22.2bn ($21.9bn) in the first quarter, while organic sales growth stood at 3.4 percent. Both measures were ahead of analysts’ expectations for sales of SFr22.1bn and organic growth of 2.8 per cent, according to Bloomberg. The performance is the latest sign that chief executive Mark Schneider, who joined Nestlé almost three years ago as its first outside chief executive since 1922, is making progress on his turnround effort.

"Nestle is a major contributor to the plastic crisis and environmental problem that we have right now," Morgan told Reuters on the sidelines of the company's annual general meeting in Lausanne, where Greenpeace activists intervened shaking banners.

    Third Point up 9 pct in first quarter, fueled largely by Nestle gains

    Third Point LP returned 9 percent in the first quarter of 2019 fueled largely by gains at Nestle, which was publicly critiqued by the hedge fund in 2018 for its "muddled strategic approach," an investor said. The Swiss-based food giant, maker of KitKat bars and Perrier water, contributed 1.5 percent in gains to $14 billion Third Point's portfolio during the first three months of the year, the investor said.

  • Private Equity Is Dodging Nielsen Stock and So Should You

    Private Equity Is Dodging Nielsen Stock and So Should You

    Speculating on buyouts can be dicey. Just look at the situation with Nielsen Holdings (NYSE:NLSN), which is a leading global measurement and data analytics company. Last week a report from the New York Post sent the company's stock reeling by about 10%. The result is that most of the gains for the year for Nielsen stock were wiped out.Source: David Boyle via FlickrThe news report indicated that the company's efforts to sell itself have hit a wall that is, it appears that Blackstone Group (NYSE:BX) has backed away from the deal. It also looks like Apollo Global Management (NYSE:APO) has been losing interest as well.So what now? Is this a sign to stay away from Nielsen stock? Or might there be value here? Well, it is not unusual for buyers to get cold feet. In auction situations, the valuations can get excessive. In fact, both BX and APO are known to be quite disciplined with their dealmaking.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * The Elite 8 Stocks to Buy for Massive Outperformance But then again, when it comes to Nielsen stock, the valuation is really not a problem. Consider that the shares are trading at a forward price-to-earnings multiple of 12.6X. The dividend yield is also at an attractive 5.26%.Now there are certainly some other positives. For example, Nielsen has a strong platform that goes well beyond TV ratings, such as providing measurement services for websites and apps. These are must-have offerings as brands need a way to evaluate their large marketing budgets. Nielsen is also highly trusted, as the company has been around for more than 90 years.By having access to large amounts of data, Nielsen is in a position to leverage artificial intelligence. This technology should allow for providing predictions and insights, which should lead to more effective ad campaigns. The Problems with NLSN StockYet there still are some nagging issues. Note that last year the top-line flat-lined and there was a drop in operating cash flows from $1.3B to $1.06 billion. It looks as if this poor performance is a key reason for BX's reluctance.Why the slowdown? One problem is that NLSN's customers are pushing back on price increases. Let's face it, some of its major ones, such as Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO), Nestle (OTCMKTS:NSRGY), Unilever (NYSE:UN) and Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG), are under pressure to rethink their marketing budgets.Then there is the issue of online privacy. For the most part, new regulations in Europe have made it more difficult to measure audiences.Oh, and something else: The company has initiated a restructuring. This has not only included a focus on reducing costs but also simplifying the operations. Because of a string of acquisitions, the IT platform is a jumble of legacy systems, which has made it difficult to leverage next-generation technologies.We need to make faster, bolder decisions. We're going to need to execute those decisions and we need to transform Nielsen into a truly product-driven measurement and technology organization," said Nielsen CEO, David Kenny, on the latest earnings call. Bottom Line On Nielsen StockAgain, Nielsen stock is trading at reasonable levels. The dividend should also act as a cushion. And even though the cash flows are flagging, there should be enough to fund the dividend for a while.Nevertheless, NLSN stock may still languish. The restructuring is still in the early stages and the marketing industry is undergoing major changes. It also is not encouraging that top-tier private equity firms appear to not have much interest. After all, they have access to large amounts of proprietary information about the company.So given all this, it's probably best to avoid NLSN stock for now.Tom Taulli is the author of High-Profit IPO Strategies, All About Commodities and All About Short Selling.

    Tilray Stock Mania Holds Its Breath as Earnings Approach

    The social stigma against marijuana continues to slowly dissipate.Source: Shutterstock A construction worker's pick-up truck passed me twice during a recent walk, apparently looking for a job site, the smell of marijuana smoke redolent in the air. It's still illegal to smoke in Georgia, but that doesn't mean the illegal market isn't operating …But what about the legal market?InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsStock in Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY), the Canadian pot company, now sits finely poised between earnings due on today after the bell and a shortage of stock to short.Tilray stock is expected to lose 12 cents per share on revenue of $14.15 million. (Earnings Whispers puts the numbers for earnings and revenue at -15 cents and $17.69mm, respectively.) But that may be less important to speculators than Tilray's efforts to create credibility with the marijuana and general investor communities. * 7 Small-Cap Stocks That Make the Grade Consider the following: Tilray has appointed Andrew Pucher, a former managing director at Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), as chief corporate development officer.Pucher joins a team that now includes former executives from Nestle (OTCMKTS:NSRGY), Diageo (NYSE:DEO), Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) and Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX). Further, Tilray has a partnership with Novartis (NYSE:NVS), a joint venture with Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD) and a production agreement with the privately-held Authentic Brands Group.Finally, Tilray last week announced a deal to buy Manitoba Harvest from Compass Group (NYSE:CODI) for about $315 million.With all this corporate star power and deal-making, you would think Tilray would be a major pot producer. What About the Product?What product?Tilray sold no marijuana during the first two weeks after Canada legalized it in October. CEO Brendan Kennedy insisted that this will have changed by this quarter, while simultaneously announcing he bought producer Natura Naturals for $26.3 million. If all this is leaving you skeptical about the company, you're not alone …Tilray short interest recently stood at 4 million shares, 24.62% of the company's float, and there's no more available to borrow. That's why shares of a company that may report revenue of $17 million trade at a market capitalization of almost $7 billion.The other is that most of the shares don't trade, with over 78% held by "individual stakeholders." There are 79 million shares outstanding. The Marijuana MarketSpeculators are betting that over the next few years, many more U.S. states will legalize marijuana sales and are looking to legislators for guidance.New Jersey is the latest with a bill to allow recreational sales. Meanwhile, Massachusetts is getting a network of pot shops, debate has begun in Connecticut and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is pushing the issue.But despite the examples of Colorado and Washington, the path to legal pot is still not a straight line.Minnesota Republicans recently rejected a legalization effort, prospects are dimming in New Mexico and New York's move is being held up by black legislators who want specific provisions for their communities to benefit.As a result, most moves lately have been toward legalizing medical marijuana, with doctors' prescriptions and extensive regulation. Florida is moving in that direction. So is Oklahoma.All that said, marijuana remains an illegal drug under U.S. law.People are still being put in jail for marijuana offenses and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk may lose his SpaceX security clearance after being shown on video smoking pot on a podcast. Bottom Line on Tilray StockDespite the success of Colorado, where marijuana sales are now growing at only single-digit rates in the fifth year of legalization, the product remains controversial.Tilray and its competitors are preparing for an opportunity that may not come to them for years. Meanwhile, marijuana stocks have been bid well beyond fundamentals. A lot of people are cashing big paychecks, and the dream of a well-regulated American pot market remains hazy.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.
