Church & Dwight (CHD) stock has risen 32.7% on a YTD basis due to the company’s strong financial performance in 2018. The company’s top and bottom line have grown at a phenomenal rate in 2018. Other major consumer packaged goods companies including Colgate-Palmolive (CL), Kimberly-Clark (KMB), and Procter & Gamble (PG) have struggled to lift their sales and EPS growth rate. Church & Dwight sustained the momentum during the third quarter, while the stock rose 11.55 in November.
Shares of major CPG (consumer packaged goods) manufacturers showed a healthy recovery in November and outperformed the benchmark index (SPX). Shares of Church & Dwight (CHD), Clorox (CLX), Kimberly-Clark (KMB), Procter & Gamble (PG), and Colgate-Palmolive (CL) increased 11.5%, 11.6%, 10.6%, 6.6%, and 6.7%, respectively, in November. In comparison, the S&P 500 Index increased 1.8% during the same period.
Colgate's (CL) dismal performance can be attributed to uncertain global markets. Also, a dismal sales trend is worrisome. However, the company's savings programs appear impressive.
P&G (PG) closes the acquisition of Merck KGaA's consumer-health business. This should bolster the company's OTC geographic scale, brand portfolio and category footprint.

While the rest of the market struggles to get back up to records, a handful of consumer staples stocks have quietly rallied to new highs.
Wall Street analysts maintain a target price of $105.65 per share on Kimberly-Clark (KMB) stock, which indicates a downside of 8.5%, based on its closing price of $115.45 on November 27. Analysts expect Kimberly-Clark’s soft sales and weak margins to hurt its stock in the near term. Kimberly-Clark’s top line is expected to decline in the next couple of quarters, reflecting adverse currency rates and challenging market conditions in China.
Analysts expect Kimberly-Clark’s bottom line to take a hit from soft sales and cost headwinds in the near term. A higher tax rate is likely to affect the 2019 EPS growth rate. Analysts expect Kimberly-Clark to report adjusted earnings of $1.66 per share in the fourth quarter of 2018, which reflects year-over-year or YoY growth of 5.7%.
Kimberly-Clark’s (KMB) profit margins remained weak in the first nine months of 2018, and the trend is likely to continue as challenges persist, at least in the near term. Kimberly-Clark’s management expects inflation in commodities, including pulp and other raw materials, to continue to hurt its gross margins despite the benefits from a favorable mix, higher pricing, and cost savings. Weak gross margins are likely to hurt operating margins during the fourth quarter.
Wall Street expects Kimberly-Clark’s sales (KMB) to remain weak in the near term, at least over the next couple of quarters. Analysts expect Kimberly-Clark’s net sales to decline 2.7% in the fourth quarter of 2018. Meanwhile, its top line is forecast to fall 4.1% in the first quarter of 2019.
