    IFF Collaborates with Aryballe on Digital Nose

    Specialty Chemicals: Updates for the Week Ending January 11 (Continued from Prior Part) ## New collaboration On January 7, International Flavors and Fragrances (IFF) announced that it has entered into a collaboration with Aryballe—an olfaction technology company located in Grenoble, France. However, International Flavors and Fragrances didn’t disclose the financial aspects of the collaboration. The collaboration between International Flavors and Fragrances and Aryballe aims to develop odor-sensing and quality control applications that can be applied in food, cosmetics, fragrance, and other industries. The technology could provide a new experience for International Flavors and Fragrances’ customers. Nicolas Mirzayantz, the divisional CEO of International Flavors and Fragrances’ Scent segment, said, “Our innovation team is thrilled to work with Aryballe on evolving this innovative device to one that is indispensable to the F&F space. We believe that we are only scratching the surface of its potential for our industry – its applications seem virtually limitless!” ## Stock performance International Flavors and Fragrances stock fell 0.9% and closed at $134.95 for the week ending January 11. The decline in the stock price resulted in the trend reversal in International Flavors and Fragrances’ 100-day moving average price. Currently, International Flavors and Fragrances is trading 1.3% below the 100-day moving average price of $136.74. The company’s 100-day moving average price has fallen from a high of $150. However, the price has recovered to the current levels from the low of $128.90. So far in 2019, International Flavors and Fragrances stock has gained ~2.1%. Sensient Technologies (SXT) and Clorox (CLX) have gained 7.9% and 0.2%, respectively, while Estée Lauder (EL) has declined 2.0%. Analysts expect International Flavors and Fragrances’ target price to be $148.4, which implies a return potential of 10% over the closing price as of January 11. Investors looking for indirect exposure to International Flavors and Fragrances could consider the Invesco S&P 500 Equal Weight Materials ETF (RTM), which invested 3.9% of its portfolio in the company as of January 11.

    Investing Defensively Can Lose You a Fortune

    Pretty, isn’t it?  Actually it is pretty ugly.  Starting in December of 2007, the S&P 500 (SPY) was down a whopping 54% (yellow line) 16 months later when it bottomed in March 2009.  The Nasdaq (QQQ) actually fared better during the time frame down only 48% (red line).  Oil (USO) clearly did the worst down 60% in the time frame (blue line).  The only thing that did well was Gold (GLD) up 18% during the time (orange line).  So when people encourage you to buy gold to be defensive, that may actually work.  But what about the “defensive” equities? Look, I have no idea if we are headed into a real downturn (economically) or not, just don’t listen to people telling you to shift your portfolio to defensive names.  No one get rich losing 30-40% on names like this.  Either sit it out, learn to short, or buy some gold.  But remember advice you hear is often to help hedge funds and mutual funds “outperform”.  But in a real downturn, you won’t feel better outperforming if you lose 20% less than everyone else, because you will still lose.

  • Where Church & Dwight Stock Could Be Headed
    Market Realist10 days ago

    Where Church & Dwight Stock Could Be Headed

    Why CHD and MKC Outperformed Broader Markets (Continued from Prior Part) ## Strong financials Church & Dwight’s (CHD) sales have been impressive in the past several quarters. The company’s top line has increased by an average of 12.6% in the past five quarters, reflecting benefits from acquisitions and innovation. Meanwhile, other household and personal care product manufacturers have struggled on the sales front, facing increased competition and soft organic volumes. Church & Dwight’s organic sales remained strong and increased 4.7% during its last reported quarter, driven by higher organic volumes and pricing. In comparison, Colgate-Palmolive’s (CL) and Kimberly-Clark’s (KMB) organic sales were soft, and Procter & Gamble’s (PG) and Clorox’s (CLX) grew decently. Church & Dwight’s impressive sales growth and considerably lower effective tax rate drove its double-digit bottom-line growth. The company’s earnings have increased by an average of 19.7% in the last three quarters, beating analysts’ estimates. ## Outlook We expect Church & Dwight’s sales and earnings growth to decelerate slightly this year as the company laps its lower tax and recent acquisitions. However, we feel good about the company’s underlying business and expect its organic sales and adjusted earnings to grow healthily despite a tough year-over-year comparison, driven by its innovative products, higher pricing, marketing investments, and cost savings. Wall Street expects Church & Dwight’s top line to rise 3.3% this year, and its adjusted EPS to grow by 8.2%.

  • Why CHD and MKC Outperformed Broader Markets
    Market Realist10 days ago

    Why CHD and MKC Outperformed Broader Markets

    Why CHD and MKC Outperformed Broader Markets ## CHD and MKC stock rose more than 30% last year The Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP) underperformed broader markets last year, dragged down by weakness in tobacco and packaged food stocks. Household and personal care product manufacturer stocks, impacted by soft demand and input and transportation costs weighing on the companies’ financials, didn’t impress, either. Despite the gloom, Church & Dwight (CHD) and McCormick (MKC) stock generated stellar returns and outperformed peers and broader markets considerably. Whereas McCormick stock rose 36.6% last year, most packaged food manufacturer stocks fell by a double-digit percentage rate, with Kraft Heinz (KHC), Conagra Brands (CAG), General Mills (GIS), Campbell Soup (CPB), and Kellogg (K) stock falling 44.7%, 43.3%, 34.3%, 31.4%, and 16.1%, respectively. Similarly, Church & Dwight outperformed other household and personal care product manufacturers last year. Whereas CHD stock rose 31.1%, Procter & Gamble (PG) was flat, and Colgate-Palmolive (CL) and Kimberly-Clark (KMB) stock fell. Clorox (CLX) had a decent year, ending it on a positive note. ## What’s behind CHD’s and MKC’s uptrend? Despite challenges, Church & Dwight and McCormick reported impressive numbers that supported their stock. Their focus on innovation, underlying business strength, and benefits from acquisitions drove their top and bottom lines. Given their recent uptrend, CHD and MKC don’t qualify as “value buys” at this juncture. However, we expect the companies’ improved organic volumes and pricing, new product launches, and cost-saving measures to continue to drive their sales and earnings.
