  • Where Church & Dwight Stock Could Be Headed

    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 Realist9 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.

    Market Realist20 days ago

    Colgate-Palmolive’s Sales Are Expected to Continue to Fall

    As we’ve discussed, Colgate-Palmolive’s (CL) top line is projected to remain weak in future quarters due to adverse currency rates, competition from the local players in China, and persisting challenges in Brazil. The company expects net sales to fall at a low-single-digit percentage rate during the fourth quarter, but its organic sales to improve YoY (year-over-year) due to higher net price realizations and a reduced impact of destocking. Wall Street projects Colgate-Palmolive’s net sales to fall 2.9% during the fourth quarter, and its top line to remain pressured in the first half of 2019.
