The Ultra-Boring Dividend I Had to Buy

In this video, Motley Fool analyst Austin Smith discusses one "boring" stock that he now owns, Unilever (NYSE: UL  ) . He compares the company to Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG  ) , a dividend favorite offering similar products to Unilever, and shows how Unilever actually beats P&G in several key investor metrics, like revenue growth and return on equity. He also likes Unilever's global positioning better; it has been established longer in several emerging markets and is growing faster in these markets than P&G as a result, something that will be crucial as the global middle class continues to swell.
