Q: Hi there,
In my US 401K in US Staples i own both HSY and SJM. SJM continues to underperform the Consumer Staples group. There always seems to be a reason for the failure to meet expectations and it just seems poorly run. I want to swap our for another stock - any suggestions for a US replacement. I am close to retirement so looking for a bit of growth and a dividend.

Q: Hello
Can you comment on General Mills quarterly earnings, and can you give me your opinion on the company?

I have some USD fund available to invest in the USA Consumer Staples sector. I own Coke and Mondalez already and am wondering if I should start a new position in Genral Mills or should I just add to Coke and Mondalez. How would you rate General Mills company vs Coke and Mondalez ?

Thank you

Can I have your opinion on averaging down on these in the current climate, say in the next few days,. Without regard for weightings,risk profile etc, could you rank them in order that you would chip away at them?
