Unilever shares have fallen nearly 20% year to date and makes this company into a value play. Usually, these types of company trade at a higher valuation given their recession-resistant characteristics and admirably steady cash flows. In good time, Unilever will get back on track and its stable of brands is too attractive to sell at a bargain-bin valuation forever. In the meantime, shares offer a 4.49% dividend yield. Therefore, Unilever is a good value stock in consumer sector.
