The Procter & Gamble Company Research Report

Reddot has named P&G's Braun CoolTec as recipient of this year's Product Design
Award. The Braun CoolTec shaver effortlessly combines functionality, performance
and aesthetics in one product. With this award, the new Braun CoolTec joins an
exclusive category of more than 250 Braun products that have received leading
international design awards throughout the past five decades. The Braun CoolTec
shaver combines a unique icy-blue color with a premium black contrasting in
parts of the body. The ergonomic body of the shaver and intuitive handling via
the icicle button activate the cooling feature, which cools down the skin during
the shaving process. This minimizes irritation and provides a relaxed and fresh
skin sensation right after shaving. The Full Research Report on The Procter &

Avon Products, Inc. Research Report

Kimberly Ross, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Avon
Products is pleased to announce that the company has achieved increased
financial flexibility. This was managed through its refinancing efforts which
have improved their balance sheet.  Avon  has entered into a new four-year  $1
billion  unsecured Revolving Credit Facility Agreement, has issued  $1.5 billion
 of unsecured notes generating net proceeds of  $1.48 billion  with maturities
of 3,7,10 and 30 years, and repaying  $1.9 billion  of debt. The company expects
interest expense in 2013 to increase approximately 10% as compared to 2012 as it
extended its maturity profile and decreased reliance on floating rate debt. The

Kimberly Clark Corp. Research Report

"On the road with ON-Q: Post-Operative Pain Education Bus Tour", a nationwide
campaign aimed at educating clinicians, administrators and other healthcare
professionals about the importance of a post-operative pain management program
has been initialized by I-Flow, a Kimberly-Clark Health Care Company. "For care
providers, acute surgical pain management is an increasingly important issue, as
the negative effects of powerful narcotics have become further realized," said 
Chris Barys, General Manager, I-Flow. "The goal of the mobile classroom is to
give clinicians the education and resources they need to make the most optimal
pain management decisions post-surgery, maintaining the patient's comfort and
safety as the top priority." Powerful narcotics used to be the treatment of
choice when it comes to post-surgical pain. This caused undesirable side-effects
such as grogginess, immunosuppression, nausea and vomiting as well as the risk
of addiction. By reducing the use of narcotics, with a pain pump, patients are
more likely to experience better pain management and faster recovery times -
patients typically go home an average of 1.1 days sooner than when treated with
narcotics alone and hospitals realize additional cost savings. The Full Research

Blyth, Inc. Research Report

Despite a slight decrease in net sales for 2012 Q4, Blyth has still managed to
position itself for profitable growth. The sale of Sterno and its new, long-term
understanding with ViSalus Founders to penetrate markets outside the U.S. has
put the company in an advantage. "ViSalus's fourth quarter sales, at  $127
million, represented 29% year-over-year sales growth," said  Robert B. Goergen,
Chairman of the Board and CEO for Blyth. "Moreover, its full year sales were 
$624 million  versus  $230 million  in 2011. That ViSalus achieved such
significant market penetration highlights the opportunity in opening additional
markets outside of  North America, beginning in 2013, following the lead of many
global health and wellness competitors," he added. The company will also
continue to invest in Candles & Home D├ęcor and Catalog & Internet businesses in
order to attain long-term sales and earnings growth. The Full Research Report on
Blyth, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price

Estee Lauder Companies Inc. Research Report

The Estee Lauded Companies has been awarded the Point Inspiration Award by the
Point Foundation - the nation's largest scholarship-granting organization for
lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGTBQ) students. "I'm deeply
honored to accept the Point Inspiration Award on behalf of The Estee Lauder
Companies," said  Peter Lichtenthal, President, Bumble and bumble and Smashbox.
"The Estee Lauder Companies has long fostered a culture of inclusion and
diversity. We have supported many LGBTQ causes over the years, and our belief in
Point Foundation, and the transformative help it provides to deserving scholars,
is an important example of this commitment. Point provides LGBTQ scholars not
only with funding, but with crucial mentoring services that work to ensure the
scholar's success. I have found working with Point Foundation highly rewarding,
first as co-chair of some of Point's 2012 events and recently as mentor to a
Point Scholar." Forbes Magazine has also recognized  Estee Lauder  as one of the
most innovative companies in the world, and has also helped Point in championing
equal access and higher education for LGBTQ students. The Full Research Report
