Calls on KMB (Kleenex) and UL (Vaseline), puts on CHD (Trojan condoms)!
Honestly my moves are pick up etfs and dollar cost average on ibm, kmb, xom. Market has been too volatile for interesting yolo plays. Sorry bros rather be safe
15x KMB $125.00 Put 6/17 at $1 a piece (pulled out all my money last week but deposited this small amount because this play is just too good. Wish I had more to play with)
Not saying that P/E of 27 won’t take a haircut but KMB is a consumer staple Dividend Aristocrat. Probably some easier puts out there.
Market is shitting the bed while Kimberly Clark (ticker KMB) the toilet paper manufacturer is chillin at ATH
Definitely going all in on PUTS tomorrow
There is a shortage on Baby formula right now but the market hasn't been reflecting it.
I've been watching $ABT & $KMB just in case.
Consumer defense.. $CAG, $CPB, $GIS, $K, $KHC, KMB, etc.
In fact $MMM looks ready to pop very soon. I’ll be watching that one closely for short term trades.
KMB up on all the shits being taken
When people use the company’s name as a term, that just shows how strong the brand is.
$GOOGL: “Just Google it” instead of “Just search it up”
$JNJ: “I need a Band-Aid” instead of “I need a bandage” (Band-Aid is a brand for bandages owned by Johnson & Johnson)
$KMB: “Pass me the Kleenex” instead of “Pass me the tissue” (People still say Kleenex even though the tissue they are using is not from Kleenex)
$UL: Unilever owns the brand Popsicle, yet everybody refers to every ice on a stick as a “Popsicle”
Was going to guess off the top of my head but then realized I can just log in an see what I bought:
JEPI, SWK, SCHD, MS, CSCO, GPC, VOO, TD, DOV, VZ, NEE, FITB, KMB.
KMB. Figured we still need toilet papers and baby diapers when shit hits fan.
Petition to temporarily kick out all of the companies in the S&P 500 except for KMB and rename it the S&P 1.
KMB puts are -70% off if you're feeling extra Degen today like me ♿♿♿😈😈😈
Exactly. OP probably looking at KMB calls.
Some implied moves for earnings next week - 337 companies reporting:
KMB … toilet paper, paper towels, baby wipes, pads……… my 2 cents.
MARSRUS--Mars Condos--Musk is still alive and well
HEDSPC--get a chip for the head and live in the virtual world
KMB--we'll still need toilet paper
I am; I have a portfolio made almost entirely on blue-chip dividend growth stocks, spread across ~34 positions in 6-7 sectors. Currently up about 3% in the past 3 months, 12% in the past 6 months. Beating all 3 indexes.
Positions are: $A, $AAPL, $ABBV, $AFL, $ALL, $AVGO, $CLX, $CVX, $ENB, $EPD, $FLO, $HII, $JNJ, $KMB, $KO, $KR, $LMT, $LOW, $MAIN, $MDT, $MO, $MRK, $MS, $MSFT, $O, $OKE, $PEP, $PFE, $PG, $STAG, $T, $TGT, $TROW, and $XOM

KMB and toilet paper, apparently
I was in my late 20's and work colleague talked endlessly about Honeywell (HON) and Larry Bossidy - so I started investing in their DRIP - initially $100/month then move to $500/quarter. I expanded after than to other DRIPs (APD, KMB, INTC). I started reading and thought I was smart enough to do it myself. I sold APD, KMB, INTC and got caught up in the dot com boom.
I thought I was a "F"-ing genius with QCOM and few others from 1998-2000 and all the Y2K hoopla. In mid-late Jan, there was like a 10% drop - "I am a f-ing genius, rushed in to buy the dip"; by mid March-April, lost $300K and got out it.
It taught me a valuable lesson, max out retirement accounts with low cost mutual funds and save 15% cash of yearly income for emergencies, after that than purchase blue chips names and reinvest dividends. SLOW and STEADY WINS THE RACE.
Luckily, I held on to HON and continued to invest. Outside my retirement accounts, it is my largest holding. I have only sold once to re-do my kitchen last year.
So your DD rates KMB (the maker of "Depends") a solid buy?
$KMB (Depend undergarments)
$ABT (Ensure nutritional beverages)
Anything related to golf and RVs.
Is there a reason that I'm missing to not invest in KMB?
All of these companies don't produce anywhere near what they are promised to. They are riddled with cheap debt and when their debt comes due they will have to pay a huge premium to get new debt. I personally think this is going to be the main reason to the next recession. All of the companies I mention are large 10+billion dollar companies.
Consumer sector- $KO/$PEP, $KMB, $PG, $MO, $LOW Health sector- $JNJ, $ABBV Industrials sector- $LMT, $HII Tech sector- $AAPL/$MSFT, $AVGO Telecom sector- $T Financials sector- $TROW, $BLK Energy sector- $XOM, $CVX
Some of these are higher yield than others, but they all sport a consistent dividend payout and strong annual dividend growth, except $T, which is cutting its dividend soon due to their split off/spin off, but it's still a strong company that isn't going to crash and burn.
I think you’re reading into it a little much. Basically what I’m saying is if Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Nvidia, 3M, VTI, WMT, HD, CL, PG, KMB, JNJ, Amazon, PFE, HAS, ABBV, and other such stocks all go to zero then we have bigger problems.
I can assure you whenever you are drafted and clearing buildings over seas (or in the U.S.) that you are not going to give a rats ass about the $10,000’s you lost by investing in 2022.

Are you saying we should invest in KMB?
Calls on $GSK... The room smells like Polident and Poligrip.
With a side of $KMB for the Depends.
$CLX for the aides who have to deal with the Code Browns.
Breathe deep the scent of the Establishment! And opportunity for tendies!
'Merica! 😂 /S
Here is my list presented in order of under to over priced in my opinion. Spoiler - You'll be sad when they get called away if you buy the undervalued ones.
First time ever as I can remember market goes down and my stocks do not. I do two strategies:
- Carry Strategy (dividend stocks): YTD -0.8%. Contains ABBV,AVGO,CAT,CLX,CMI,CSCO,CTVA,DD,DOW,EMR,F,FE,GILD,GIS,HST,IBM,IFF,JNJ,K,KD,KMB,LMT,LUMN,MET,MRK,NUE,O,OGN,ONL,OXY,PFE,PFG,PM,PRU,SLB,T,TRI,VTRS,VZ
- Momentum and growth, my playground: YTD +3.13%. Contains AA,AEG,ANDE,AR,ARCB,ARCH,BBAR,BG,BIG,BP,CEIX,CENX,CEPU,CLS,CMC,COWN,DAR,E,HBM,HIMX,HUN,KMX,LPI,MLI,MT,MUSA,PTR,SHEL,RUSHA,SM,SMCI,TBI,TMST,TPH,TROX,TRQ,UVE,VIST,VTOL,WFG,ZIM
Almost no tech, some energy, all sectors. 80 titles, shit, that is a lot. I don't like to sell, my motto: hold as long as possible... but not longer.
BTW: I explained my carry strategy rules here: I am a robot
3M does still have the boxes. They're around $25 to $30.
KMB has boxes too.
This is from a dividend growth point of view, I own all of these so there's a bit of bias, but the takeaway is to find a company that will be boring and safe with good fundamentals.
Healthcare: $JNJ- not weighed down by the threat of patent expiration (at least to an extent of other beloved companies in the sector), has a pretty good moat with medical treatment products.
Consumer cyclicals: $KMB- Massive moat and product line, paper-based products like diapers, tissues, and TP; pretty much always going to be bought. $KO or $PEP- large food and drinks product lines, something people will almost always buy, either as a treat or daily life foodstuff.
Energy: $XOM or $CVX- both are your run off the mill large oil companies looking into expanding into green energy as well, with pretty good plans as well.
Real estate: $O- safe, pretty popular, and grows rather well. Not much to say past that.
Financials: $TROW- has something like $1.5 trillion of assets being managed, recently took a pretty big hit just for a bad protection of future growth, so pretty appealing.
Industrials: $LMT- could see some growth from whatever comes out of the Russia-ukraine situation. Also very safe with how our military budget is.
Communications: $T- is pretty much this or $VZ but Verizon has pretty subpar growth, and $T had the potential spinoff with discovery. Keep an eye on whether or not it's a spinoff or split off though.
KMB for a swing trade? Looks way oversold on stochastics and hitting a massive support level. 🤔
If you're an AARP subscriber it's very good with few exceptions. If you're under 30 it's too conservative/seems to entirely prioritize yield, including companies that have been stagnant for reasons (VZ, BMY, COL, KMB, etc) If you have companies that have gone nowhere for years, not going to expect much in the way of dividend growth or price appreciation and if the stagnant price is due to company issues, how secure is the dividend over the long-term?
Of course you can pick stocks with more risk than the SP500. But my point is the SPY is not company nor sector nor industry diversified. Big past growers make up way too much space and this is a big risk. A risk that paid good until 2020 but one day will take its price.
If you want to know what stocks I hold here is the list of my divi portfolio (some are spin-offs): ABBV,AVGO,CAT,CLX,CMI,CSCO,CTVA,DD,DOW,EMR,F,FE,GILD,GIS,HST,IBM,IFF,JNJ,K,KD,KMB,LMT,LUMN,MET,MRK,NUE,O,OGN,ONL,OXY,PFE,PFG,PM,PRU,SLB,T,TRI,VTRS,VZ
KMB looks like a buy, but I'm not confident in anything so I'm laying low today. These earnings dips are making for sweet swing trades for somebody.
UL FB KMB MO BTI DEO GOOG VOO VIAC JNJ BRKB AMZN GOLD
Sigh. Guess I'll jerk off again.
Calls on KMB
Some implied moves for #earnings next week - 489 companies reporting
Also you can look at the reverse - GE, F, INTC - run ups then crash - so you must time it correctly.
I actually done the same, but I put money in two DRIPs and invested quarterly for the last 20+ years - HON (diversified manufacture with good management) and KMB (you always need tissues)
Whenever I don't feel like doing errands I just buy shares in companies that have shit I need so I'm incentivized to go do them.
Anyway, $PLBY $BUD $TLRY $KMB $PENN
Go for it. Part of the reason I’m not keen as I look at their product list and sometimes use only one of their products. One. Not a good sign.
Forgot to add I also bought SJM with KO and ADM. It never does much and didn’t recover like other things, but didn’t go down much either. I don’t use their products much either so guess I’m not totally true to my thinking. I also bought KMB, but didn’t hold it long. I hate their product line up more than PG.
I spent thirty eight years working for Scott paper and Kimberly Clark KMB almost day trading my 401k averaged about 35 percent each year they pay good dividends and good fluctuations sell the highs and buy the dips not professional advice just worked for me.
Ko Kmb Clx Mmm Cat Pep Vxus This year
I'm sorry for the offtop, but by now I'm not allowed to make a separate post to to the insuffucient karma rate. I just wonder, are there any chances for KMB stocks to grow up to 150 USD in the coming year? In the coming 2 years? Apreciate your thoughts )
There are a lot of interesting posts on what one can do with $300k today. If it were me, I would apportion a percentage into a ROTH IRA in stocks of companies that I, and perhaps people that I know, buy products from. If one and a number of friends (especially with kids) DIS would be a buy. If one lives in a more rural area, or perhaps lives in a subdivision that has acreage where one could keep a horse, or say one has a couple of labs or retrievers - TCS would be a natural buy. If one uses Scott’s Toilet paper, Kleenex, Cottenelle, Huggies, Viva paper towels, or Kotex - invest in KMB. These are all household names. If you don’t go to Disney, Tractor Supply or use Kimberly-Clark products I can guarantee you that you will meet many people who will use one, if not two of the companies I have mentioned.
Another practical investment would be land purchases. Land purchase are a wise investment as land typically holds its value, and depending the location, land values can rise.
Another consideration, if you haven’t thought of it already is this: you are one 30 once. Time goes by fast, and before you know it-you are 60, 70 years old. A lot of things can happen in-between. If you have not considered purchasing long term disability insurance, do it now. It is basically “paycheck” insurance and if you buy enough of it, should you become disabled, you will have an income stream that will sustain you and your wife without having to tap into Social Security Benefits. Also, one of the biggest setbacks that can befall ANY individual of this country, regardless of age, is to have a injury or illness so debilitating that one needs long term care either at home or in a nursing home. Best time to plan for this type of situation is now, when you are young as the premiums are far less expensive. Just don’t fall for plans with too many limitations as it will hinder you when you need it.
There are many other things one can do with $300k. It depends on what interests YOU. What YOUR risk tolerances are. What are your LONG TERM future goals?

Declaration: I hold shares of all of the mentioned companies. Was a very good year so far...
Time to switch to toilet paper!!! $KMB to the moon!!!
I have taken note of products I use and seeing what company produces the item. Has done well so far. PG & KMB. I also like companies that have been consistently good, basically value companies. Sure, the big gains on a yolo can be fun…but it’s really fun seeing almost all your holdings green at the same time. (I have about 20 holdings)
I’m currently in : AFL, ABBV, BMY, CSCO, JNJ, KMB, MDT, PG, VZ, WBA & XOM. Mainly all dividend “aristocrats” however I mainly looked for companies I liked and seem positioned to do well. For me as well
HP green DGX green CPB green KMB green SIMO green HIMX green ON green
Do you even know what literally means?
We've been slowly buying XOM, UL, KO, VZ, DOW, KMB started 2 months ago. Will buy more today, and continue for the rest of the year total $100k-$200k.
Diapers & baby wipes. KMB felt that hit. Fact. Probably close more mills?
Honestly, i built a dividend portfolio. KMB, KO, VZ, O, T.
T split the dividend. KMB slowly slid down VZ quickly slid down
Whereas my nvda is up 100 a share. Msft is up 80 a share.
You sure dividends are worth it?
Calls on KMB and whoever owns Tums this morning then.
Using a KMB synthetic collar October 29
Sold $128p and bought $128 call. Up 164% on the call and 64% on the put. I fell asleep and woke up right at close. Gotta sell these bags tomorrow if it opens at or above 130.
No problem. Going to be a massively pivotal week for earnings as well! Look at this craziness. For those of you who wanted guidance as to the state of business in the US you’re going to get it!

I think we are going to encounter an exceedingly rare occasion of a ticker getting halted both going up and going down on the same day. Either way, gonna be a big day for kleenex (KMB).
How about adding something KMB, pg, JNJ, GIS, wba, mmm for stability? Lol
No-start early, make consistent contributions and reinvest the dividends. I started investing in Allied Signal (now HON) in the 1990’s via their DRIP at the urging of a work colleague that would not stop talking about it. I initially was investing $100/month and then changed to $500/quarter. Today,it is one of largest holding. I only sold 200 shares to redo my kitchen recently. Taught me slow and steady wins the race. I also have DRIPs in NJR, KMB, and APD but not as much as HON. Retired early and now living the good life without debt.
Today was fine, I have stocks like KHC, GIS, K, KMB, WBA….. :-)
VTI/VOO/SPY -index funds are always the safest and best long term play due the average investor, board market find are the best out of these.
tech: AAPL -huge moat, AAPL also has a nice stock split history and looks to become a strong dividend growth stock
consumer cyclical: KMB -also a huge moat, as well as providing necessary products (you can skip soda, or chips, but not toilet paper or diapers)
health: JNJ -moat like everything else, and doesn't depend heavily on parents which could expire in the next decade
energy: XOM -has a high level of planning/forsight, and seems to listen to shareholder meetings, meaning it'll likely keep up with changing energy trends.
I follow north of 4000 accounts on Twitter. I would say 55/45 Right/Left. I saw both sides “reporting” that everyone’s favorite conspiracy theorist has “confirmed reports” that POTUS poops his pants and wears adult diapers.
Calls on KMB.
Also, SPY 441 tomorrow.
I do both, HOWEVER, for a regular person I'd always recommend an S&P 500 or total market index, throw money into it and don't look at it or mess with it for a couple decades. Done.
Long story short, i have a 401k thru work that I thought I could pull at 59.5 yrs old. I started my own taxable account out of curiousity with a few hundred dollars and if I retire at 50, I gotta supplement those 9.5 years. I bought Apple, Shell, Coca-Cola, Netflix, etc. over time. I figure I'd buy them, this was 2014, let them grow and sell when I needed them.
Rules were changed in 2018 I guess, or I was just unaware, I can pull from my 401k penalty (and tax?) free at 50 so my taxable account is, well, not meaningless but since it's only about 10% of my total retirement I figure I can go risky. I don't like to speculate nor do I like penny stocks so I settled on dividends. I already had the boring stuff, KO, JNJ, MMM, KMB, JPM, PEP, MCD, MSFT, PG, V, WMT, etc. already buying more of themselves with the auto reinvesting so anything new, I wanted riskier. That's when I learned about REITs, MLPs, BDCs and covered call ETFs but again, this is my "gambling" money and 90% of my retirement is in the equivalent of VOO and VXF.
Last year when I picked up the 3M box, it seemed people didn't realize these kinds of shareholder perks existed. So, I've been aiming to post information as I discover it.
From what I understand with the KMB giftbox:
You need 1 share.
It can be through a brokerage.
It costs $26.
It appears to be really good for people with children in diapers, but there's stuff for other people too.
Note: I have not ordered one for myself yet.
Gave me a good laugh! So funny I shit myself, calls on KMB!
Thanks for the confirmation bias.
Majority of my investments are in the company I work for for the share purchase matching, and some mutual funds that also have some form of matching.
I’m not fucking around with life savings shit. If I can make extra to cover shit like daycare, clothes, baby stuff, and all that, then yeah, tossing money on dumb bets is the life for me.
Calls on $KMB folks.
$KMB ? Toilet paper, baby wipes, feminine hygiene..... + more.
I started investing via DRIPs - my first was Allied Signal (now Honeywell) at the urging of a work colleague who could not stop talking about Larry Bossidy. I invested $100/month starting in the mid 1990s and then changed it to $500/quarter - today it is by far my largest holding. I only sold some this year to re-do my kitchen. The other DRIPs I own were APD, KMB and NJR - I sold these to buy my house. I did not want any debt. This was my learning ground for investing. Happily retired early - six years ago.
