Analyzing Consumer Staples Companies: Mondelez Is A Long-Term Buy

Consumer staples companies are favorites of many dividend growth and income investors. This is due to the long-term ability to raise the dividend and the relatively decent yields. These companies in general exhibit stable earnings and cash flows over long periods of time. Some are also Dividend Kings, Dividend Aristocrats, or Dividend Champions adding to their attraction. Furthermore, consumer staples companies are probably insulated from trade wars. Most generate the majority of their revenue from the U.S. or North America. I am long some of these stocks and they form a core part of my dividend growth portfolio. In this article, I compare 17 consumer staple stocks and then analyze them with my weighted ranking model. The highest ranked stock is Hormel Foods Corporation (HRL), which is no surprise. But I currently view this stock as a hold due to relative overvaluation. The second highest ranked stock is Mondelez International Inc (MDLZ), which I view as a long-term buy.
