But perhaps the economy is a bit like the Washington gridlock.
The implication for the market are bad.
Let me give you the unassailable themes.
If KMB's 2Q report is as disappointing as 1Q, investors may seek a new safe haven.
All of these add up to a level of insecurity on the part of sidelined money.
Debt-fueled buybacks and an overly generous dividend are potential drags on the stock's value.
U.S. companies with big overseas presence are getting hit.
Sky-High Price-to-Earnings Ratios. Wall Street might historically view consumer staples as "defensive," but many have offensive valuations these days. Those have stemmed from an extended low-interest-rate period (which is likely to end shortly), coupled with the incorrect perception that consumer staples' profits will be immune to the soft global-economic backdrop. Yields That Won't Provide Adequate Support. Consumer staples' dividend yields no longer provide the safety net that many investors believe. As we saw with Campbell's, a good dividend yield provides little protection when fundamentals sour -- as they likely will for many firms in the more-competitive global backdrop that I expect. Inflation is rising, and with that will inevitably come higher interest rates, meaning that the sector's current yields will provide little support. Emerging-Market Profit Pressures. Don't view Campbell's as an outlier. Generic competition, a potentially strengthening U.S. dollar and higher input costs due to rising commodities prices all represent continuing profit threats for the sector. P/E/G Rates are Elevated. P/E/G rates -- or stock valuations relative to the potential for reduced or pressured secular profit growth -- serve as another significant headwind for consumer staples. In fact, the sector's P/E ratios are obscene in certain cases relative to expected five-year growth rates, as this chart shows: Company                              P/E*               Div. Yield         5-year Expected EPS Gain Campbell                              27.1               2.08%           &nb
