On Wednesday's MarketFoolery, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool Funds analyst Bill Barker talk about appreciating consumer staples and Paris.
While a seemingly boring sector, there are exciting developments afoot in kitty litter. Yes, kitty litter. Bill attended a consumer staples conference in Paris recently and came out with a new appreciation for the product. As an owner of four cats, Bill appreciates the innovations that companies like Unilever (NYSE:UL) are making in the kitty litter division. Bob explains that persuading consumers into buying new brands and creating customer loyalty is big business in any market, but especially in consumer staples, where customers may use a product every single day.
Then Chris and Bill chat about Paris itself -- a topic that gives Chris temporary paralysis.
