They discussed their best plays.
Middleswart said he is shorting the consumer product stocks.
“They had a lot of growth demand in late 2009 and early 2010—but we think a lot of those comps are gone,” he explained.
“And with the euro as a headwind, I don’t see how they’re going to get the volume growth they’ve always had.”
