Though the company saw YoY improvement in net sales during the first two quarters of 2018, its net sales fell short of Wall Street’s expectations.

Colgate-Palmolive (CL) stock has unperformed so far this year as weaker-than-expected sales and sluggish performance on the margins front have remained a drag. Moreover, Colgate-Palmolive’s bottom line didn’t impress despite the lower tax environment.
