Posted on the 20 October 2011 by Divstkforcomman @DivStkForComMan
Avon Products, Inc., stock ticker AVP, creates, manufactures and markets beauty and non-beauty related products. Product categories are beauty, fashion and home. AVP's international operations are conducted through subsidiaries in 63 countries and territories outside of the United States. AVP's products are distributed in 41 other countries and territories. 
AVP currently has a dividend yield of 4.09%, which is a $0.23 per share. They have paid their shareholders a dividend since February 16th, 1988 and have never stopped their payout. AVP's market cap totals $9.68 billion and 86% of their purchased shares are institutionally owned. AVP is a classic dividend growth investment. Investing in AVP during your working career is an excellent decision since I believe AVP will grow in value and they will increase their dividend as you work your way up the corporate ladder.
Avon presents great value in their stock because of it being oversold and its 4% dividend. They have made advancements in their skin products putting it on par with Estee Lauder and Lancome for half the price. Great company for those unemployed, easy to sell products because you can easily convert customer once they've tried products. Between growth in earnings and a decent yield this should outperform the S&P. Avon does well regardless of the economy.
