$GSM $GOLD $NK.PA $LYB $WLK https://www.imerys.com/media-room/press-releases/imerys-presents-its-2023-2025-strategic-plan-and-growth-ambition-its Imerys has remained in my portfolio since 2017. The J&J talc lawsuit really hurt the share price over the last few years. However, I’ve continued to hold and collect my dividends and price appreciation will soon follow. This isn’t a high flyer, but a consistent dividend payer with consistent growth expected for years to come. It’s currently my 6th largest position. I personally see at least 10-15% share price increase annually being very obtainable. All while collecting a 3.5-5% dividend.
