Searching for good quality stocks in the Consumer Sector

Let us have a look at some consumer stocks.  I have selected these stocks based on their doubling in their earnings over the 10 year period of 1999 to 2009.

Here are these stocks:

Ajinomoto
BAT
Bonia
DLady
F&N
Mamee
Nestle
Padini
PPB
QL
UMW

Subjecting the above to a further screening criteria (that is, no decline of >5% in earnings in 2 out of these 10 years), the following stocks are discarded from this list:

Ajinomoto
Mamee
UMW

Also, BAT is also discarded as the earnings growth the last 5 years had been negligible or anaemic at best.

This leaves the following stocks, with history of durable competitive advantage, in this list for further analysis.

Ajinomoto
BAT
Bonia
DLady
F&N
Mamee
Nestle
Padini
PPB
QL
UMW
Which 1 or 2 of the above stocks would you wish to own for the long term?

Time for QVM analysis when time permits..

Traders are taught that the Holy Grail to Investing doesn't exist. Real people were taught that all the planet's move about the earth, don't go to far out into the ocean(you'll fall off the earth), on and on..........

When one looks outside the box(inventor), goes against the group(thinks for self), said they found(developed) something that is supposed to be impossible(airplanes), they were once killed. Now these people are called bad names and delegated to be unheard, and ignored group.

The ultimate business solution. The ability to cut the cost of any business expense, or just plain invest.

I developed multiple arbitrages that enable me to trade(not invest) in the financial markets, without risk(The Holy Grail to Investing), or arbitrage that anyone can do. Over 30% a year.
