The consumer goods giant is looking to reshape its business as consumer tastes continue to evolve. According to reports, the firm – backed heavily by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A) – is considering a deal to sell its Maxwell House brand. Warren Buffett is also affecting shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). Although AAPL stock added 0.4% in pre-market hours, Buffett said he would not purchase more shares of the company stock at these levels. However, should AAPL stock pull back in the near future, the “Oracle of Omaha” would consider purchasing more.

  • [By Matthew Frankel, CFP]

    Frankel: Mine is Tanger Factory Outlets (NYSE:SKT), ticker SKT. Since we already talked about Realty Income and the good kind of retail, I wanted to push that a little bit further. This is another one that I own, not quite to the magnitude that I own Realty Income. Tanger is a great dividend stock, pays about 6.3% right now. It’s also a kind of retail that’s not terribly vulnerable to e-commerce. The nature of outlet retail is very experiential. I don’t know about you, but the reason that my wife and I go to the outlets from time to time is to find stuff that we can’t find anywhere else. It’s got the experiential component, it’s got a discount component, which keeps people physically going to those properties instead of browsing online equivalents.

    Shares of Tanger Factory Outlets (NYSE:SKT) fell 9% to an eight-year low on May 2 after the outlet owner reported its first quarter earnings. Tanger beat estimates on the top and bottom lines, but also reported declines in its core business and cut its full-year guidance.

According to International Journal of Rheumatic Diseases, 2011, 53% of KOA patients will degenerate to the point of disability.

However, only 40,000 patients will actually be able to undergo replacement surgery, leaving the majority of patients to suffer from a life-long disability due to lack of effective treatment.
