Posted on the 18 September 2011 by Divstkforcomman @DivStkForComMan
Emerson Electric Co., stock ticker EMR,  is a diversified global technology company. Emerson was founded in 1890 in St. Louis, Missouri, as a manufacturer of electric motors and fans. Emerson has approximately 127,700 employees and 240 manufacturing locations worldwide. EMR designs and supplies product technology and delivers engineering services and solutions in a range of industrial, commercial and consumer markets around the world. They have five business segments:
  • Process Management - provides measurement, control and diagnostic capabilities for automated industrial processes producing items.
  • Industrial Automation - provides integrated manufacturing solutions to diverse industries worldwide.
  • Network Power - provides power conditioning and environmental control to help keep telecommunication systems, data networks and other business applications operating.
  • Climate Technologies - provides household and commercial comfort, as well as food safety and energy efficiency.
  • Tools and Storage - provides tools for professionals and homeowners, home and commercial storage systems, and appliance solutions.
EMR has been on a good run and although it has slowed and pulled back some recently it still remains an interesting long term investment. The company trades pretty closely with the market and unfortunately has rode the market down since the beginning of August 2011. The weakening of Emerson’s share price has started to put it on the radar for dividend investors.
EMR has grown its dividend payout over the last five years, even during the Great Recession. They pay shareholders $0.34 per share, which is a 3.02% dividend yield. EMR is currently trading at only 11.7 time forward earnings. They look like a nice purchase for the "Common Man" dividend value investor. EMR has a diverse product line and worldwide market share.
