Investing in Consumer Staples

Read a book recently about investing in consumer staples.  I think the ideas presented were fairly new to me as I have never ever thought of investing in consumer staples before.  I guess there are not many consumer staples kind of stocks in Singapore other than the telcos and the transportation companies.

Well, if one has access to the US market, one could invest in stocks like Colgate-Palmolive, Proctor and Gamble, Coke, etc.  These are really defensive play stocks and the businesses should do reasonably well even if the economy tanks.  Afterall, people still need to brush their teeth and wash their hair even if the economy is bad.

    More than half are above average companies in my opinion and a few are in my watchlist.
