The Procter & Gamble Company Research Report

P&G, the world's largest consumer goods producer, recently reported impressive
results for the last three months of 2012, or Q2 2013. The company earned $4.1
billion, up from $1.7 billion earnings during the same quarter in the previous
fiscal year. The impressive results are driven by the company's cost-cutting
efforts as well as the introduction of new products, including Tide Pods and a
new version of the Pantene shampoo. Gaining 1.8 percent in 2012, P&G stands a
better chance of performing better in 2013 than its rivals, including
Colgate-Palmolive. Due to strategic pricing, the company's sales are
increasing. In the long term, it is aiming to increase sales volume while
maintaining higher prices. P&G owns some of the best brands in the world that
are known for trust and quality, allowing it to charge a premium for its
products. Looking ahead, P&G expects to experience stable growth in 2013. The
company repurchased $1.4 billion in stock in the latest quarter, totaling of
$4 billion worth of repurchases since July 2012. P&G expects to repurchase $6
billion by June. Q3 2013 earnings of P&G are tentatively scheduled to be
released on April 24, 2013. The Full Research Report on The Procter & Gamble

Colgate-Palmolive Company Research Report

Another leading consumer goods dealer, Colgate-Palmolive, is also likely to
beat analyst estimates. With a buy rating and a positive earnings ESP, the
company's strategic acquisition and divestment activities, as well as its
sustained focus on product innovation can provide growth opportunities that
can boost profitability. In 2012, Colgate-Palmolive's sales gained 13.2
percent. Over half of its sales come from developing markets, including Brazil
and China. For Q4 2012, the company reported adjusted earnings of $1.41 per
share, approximately 8.5 percent beyond Q4 2011's adjusted earnings of $1.30.
 Global sales also surged 2.7 percent to $4,286 million, benefiting from a 2.5
percent upside in pricing and 1.5 percent increase in global unit volumes.
Adjusted gross profit margin also expanded, driven by increased prices as well
as the company's cost-cutting efforts from its funding-the-growth initiatives.

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Research Report

Royal Caribbean in particular saw its stock price plummet down to a measly
$5.40 in 2009 amid recession-related fears, only to rebound back to more than
500 percent this year at $36.20. The company is known for its large ships,
notably its twin 5,400-passenger Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, the
world's two largest cruise ships. The large ships have been beneficial for the
company, so much that a third such vessel is slated to come out in mid-2016.
Royal Caribbean chair Richard D. Fain told Motley Fool that "these ships have
consistently generated outstanding guest satisfaction ratings and produce
superior financial results." The Full Research Report on Royal Caribbean
Cruises Ltd. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price

Carnival Corporation Research Report

Carnival, on the other hand, looks to bounce back one year after the Costa
Concordia mess, with its shares up 11 percent entering 2013. It is presently
trading at $38.72. Recently, it announced the buyback of up to $1 billion of
the company's shares and declared a quarterly dividend of 25 cents.

Meanwhile, a Reuters report says that an estimated 20.97 million passengers
are expected to board cruise lines this year, with more customers from
Australia and Asia adding on to the regular American and Canadian passengers.
 China in particular is a big growth area, with cruise lines investing more in
the area with home ports and ports of call, and sending more ships there to
meet demand. As a result, itineraries to Japan, China, Australia, South Korea,
and Vietnam are expected to be added, with trips to more destinations like
Morocco, Antarctica, Iceland and the Galapagos Islands. The Full Research
Report on Carnival Corporation - including full detailed breakdown, analyst
ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at:

The Western Union Company Research Report

Western Union is one of the best examples of companies today with wide
economic moats that are trading at discounts to their intrinsic values. In an
attractive industry, the company's dominant market share allows significant
cost and network advantage. It also has operating margins about twice the size
of its competitors. Trading at a substantial discount provides the company
strong protection against downside risk, and provides a good chance at earning
high returns. As the industry consolidates, Western Union has opportunity to
grow through both increased market share and expansion into new markets. The
company recently ventured into prepaid cards, providing significant growth
opportunities playing to its strength of wide distribution. Despite its stock
losing about a quarter of its value in 2012, Western Union offered a good 3.70
percent dividend yield. The company also approved a new share repurchase
program of $550 million. These initiatives can help strengthen investors'
confidence in the stock. Shares of Western Union traded up 3.40 percent on
Monday, hitting $13.99. In the previous quarter, the company has reported 45
cents EPS, meeting analysts' expectations. Analysts have issued a buy rating
with a $12 to $19 price target. Continuing to build upon its global agent
network, it recently announced the expansion of its Direct-to-Bank service to
include China and Canada. Q1 2013 results will be released on April 22, 2013.
