Yes, there was a strong rebound off the October lows, which is classic market action. Almost textbook as well is the dramatic intra-day swings and alternating days of declines and advances, explains dividend specialist and value investing expert, Kelley Wright, editor of IQ Trends.
Colgate-Palmolive (CL) stock outperformed the broader markets in November and increased 6.7%. Colgate-Palmolive’s top line is projected to remain low during the fourth quarter, which reflects the negative impact from currency rates and challenging market conditions in China and Brazil. Analysts expect Colgate-Palmolive’s fourth-quarter EPS to decline on a year-over-year basis due to lower sales and weak margins.

Clorox (NYSE:CLX) stock has brought the company back in the headlines. After a 35% increase over the last six months, many wonder whether the time has come to buy Clorox stock. Household products stocks typically receive less attention than stocks like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) or Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA).
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.
Shares of Kimberly-Clark (KMB) have increased 8.5% since the company reported better-than-expected third-quarter results on October 22. Kimberly-Clark’s third-quarter top and bottom lines came in ahead of analysts’ estimates, thanks to higher pricing, a favorable mix, a lower effective tax rate, and share repurchases.
