We’ve seen a bit of turbulence in international emerging markets with speculation about trade talks and the perceived slower growth in China and Europe.

Apparently, institutional investors are underweighting Europe so we go against the grain for our new recommendation. This is a great brand that offers a nice combination of high quality, value price of entry, strong growth in emerging markets and a 7.8% dividend yield.
