    Defensive shares keep FTSE aloft

    The UK's top share index held its ground on Friday, outperforming a broadly negative European market, as global trade uncertainty and political troubles closer to home spurred demand for defensive stocks and earnings filtered through. The blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index was up 0.1 percent at 7,694.98 points by 0916 GMT. The FTSE, dominated by companies with large foreign currency earnings, has found support from weakness in the pound, which has been on the backfoot this week amid signs of discord in Prime Minister Theresa May's party over her Brexit strategy.

    Unilever forecasts improved sales as it reforms structure

    Unilever expects sales growth to accelerate in the second half of the year, as it pushes through price rises to offset higher commodity costs and works to collapse its dual-headed structure. An increasing number of UK-based shareholders are voicing concern about the plan to make Rotterdam its headquarters, which will likely seen Unilever drop out of Britain's blue chip FTSE 100 index. "We don't think the changes, as they currently stand are in the best interests of the company's UK investor base and we will be urging the group to reconsider its plans," Hargreaves Lansdown portfolio manager Steve Clayton said on Thursday.

As Chief Executive Officer Paul Polman prepares to leave after nearly a decade, he’s completing work on a plan to consolidate the company’s headquarters in the Netherlands, despite dissent from some investors.

It is factories like this that have made South Korea the epicentre of fast beauty, a world in which the time it takes to get a product idea onto store shelves has dropped dramatically, often by years. Some of the major Korean brands they work for have been acquired by global cosmetics companies such as L’Oreal (OREP.PA) and Unilever (ULVR.L), and according to people with direct knowledge of the matter, the manufacturers themselves have received investment offers, some from foreign cosmetics firms.

    The 3 Safest Dividend Stocks for International Exposure

    In any long-term diversified portfolio, international stocks not only have a place, they should be represented by as much as 10% to 15% of your investment. The reason is not merely diversification, but because international stocks do not always correlate directly to the performance of the U.S. market. Investors can be afraid of international stocks, as if they aren’t as safe from a political, reporting or regulatory perspective as they are here in the United States.

    Firing fake pineapples, Pernod uses 'influencers' to drive sales

    LONDON/CANNES, France (Reuters) - This spring, Pernod Ricard's (PERP.PA) Malibu Rum paid American singer Nick Jonas to host a competition in Vietnam that began with 33 Instagram stars battling to catch fake pineapples while flying off a giant waterslide into the sea. In one month alone, videos and pictures from the "Malibu Games" were viewed 2.4 billion times online, showing the potential for so-called "influencer marketing" to reach social media-mad consumers that may overlook older, traditional brands. Influencer marketing found early popularity with beauty, fast fashion and fitness brands but has now spread across the spectrum, even though some analysts question whether it actually works.

    Dove develops 'no distortion' mark for media images

    A mark that designates when an image hasn't been digitally altered is the latest effort in the Dove Self-Esteem Project, an project launched in 2004 to promote body confidence in girls and women.  Dove, a Unilever (NYSE: UL) brand, will roll out the "No Digital Distortion Mark" across all of its branded content beginning in July, Marketing Dive reports, and plans to include it on all of its imagery depicting women by 2019. The company said the purpose of the mark is to communicate to women and girls that what they see in the ads has not been manipulated according to false standards of beauty. “When content in the media is not reflective of reality, it has a profound negative effect on the viewer,” said Jess Weiner, cultural expert and adjunct professor at University of Southern California (USC) Annenberg School of Journalism, told AdWeek.
