Groupe Bruxelles Lambert, a Belgium-based investment holding company which I believe is a good long-term hold and is up nearly 15% in EUR terms since my post (ABC, DEF, GBL?), also has exposure to a similar business via its investment in Belgium’s Ontex (www.ontexglobal.com).

I am going to go out on a limb here, but it looks like the smart money may be in diapers.

WARNING: ITS PRETTY GOOD!
