Industry: Diversified Industrials

Emerson is a global diversified manufacturing and solutions company. EMR combines technology and engineering to help customers innovate to improve productivity and efficiency. The company serves the industrial, commercial and consumer markets through two new business platforms: Automation Solutions and Commercial & Residential Solutions.

SWOT Analysis


Emerson has a long history of adapting to changing environments. Big changes are underway right now; shedding business (i.e. Network Power in 2016) and focusing businesses that fit their two new platforms.

EMR has a strong global presence (more that 150 countries) with a little more than one-half of EMR revenues coming from overseas. The company has a deep and varied product portfolio complemented by a stellar reputation and strong brand. It boasts a large “moat” in field instrument segments and asset management systems.


High research and development costs. EMR’s large customers have high bargaining power.


New technologies and obsolescence of older customers plants provide opportunities for substantial growth in developed nations. Expansion into new frontier markets.


There is intense competition in some of EMR’s business segments, particularly industrial automation. In addition, as a truly global company, they are subject to economic and political risks affiliated with foreign production facilities.

Type of Investor / Recommendation

Large Diversified Dividend Portfolios / Can Be Considered
Looking For Exposure to Dividend Kings & Aristocrats / Good Choice
Looking For Exposure to Industrials Sector / Average Choice
Deep Value Investors / Avoid

Emerson Electric (EMR) is ranked #119 (out of 252) overall and #26 (out of 57) in the Industrials Sector by the Dividend Analyzer.

The fact that EMR has increased dividends paid for 59 consecutive years, means the stock deserves some kind of premium. I’m concerned that premium is too high and not taking into account all the current risks.

A clearer successful turnaround OR a lower stock price would make EMR a more attractive buy.
