29 symbols

Description

With 7.8bn humans in the world, someone needs to provide for them. Enter fast moving consumer goods (FMCG). These products encompass stuff that's not durable - goods such as packaged foods, toiletries, over-the-counter drugs, cans of soda, packets of cigarettes. You name it - a lot of items on the shelf come under this category. This sector covers everyday items that sell quickly and at low cost, making it a low-growth but relatively predictable sector with reduced volatility.

The symbols listed below are the biggest and most recognizable brands out there. Those we've included all have market capitalizations over $10bn and are publicly traded on US stock exchanges. Despite these familiar names, still don't just rely on us and always do your own research.
