Kimberly-Clark Corp. shares rose 2.4% in Tuesday premarket trading after the Kleenex company reported second-quarter earnings that beat expectations and raised its full-year guidance.

Sales of $4.59 billion was down slightly from $4.60 billion last year but just ahead of the $4.58 billion FactSet expectation. Kimberly-Clark now expects full-year adjusted earnings to be $6.65 to $6.80, up from previous guidance of $6.50 to $6.70. The FactSet consensus is for $6.76. Net sales are now expected to be even-to-down 1% year-over-year versus prior guidance for a 1%-to-2% decline. Kimberly-Clark stock is up nearly 18% for the year to date while the S&P 500 index is up 19.1% for the period.
