    Why PG’s Earnings Dragged KMB, CL, CLX, and CHD Down

    Procter & Gamble (PG) reported weak sales and earnings growth in fiscal 3Q18 (period ended March 31, 2018) on April 19, 2018. The company’s stock fell 4.2% after the release and closed at $74.95. Procter & Gamble’s soft organic sales and tepid margin performance sent the stocks of other major CPG (consumer packaged goods) companies down as investors fear that price competition, business reinvestment needs, and inflation in commodities and transportation costs are likely to dent the financials of these companies.

    Will Philip Morris’s 1Q18 Earnings Boost Its Stock Price?

    Philip Morris International (PM), an American tobacco company, is scheduled to announce its 1Q18 earnings before the market opens on April 19, 2018. In 4Q17, Philip Morris posted adjusted EPS (earnings per share) of $1.31 on revenues of $8.29 billion.

    First-Quarter Sector Snapshot: Two Areas That Made Money

    Putting aside the soon-to-be dismantled telecommunications sector, of the 10 major S&P sectors, only two finished the first quarter in the black--consumer discretionary, and of course tech. Consumer discretionary got a boost from the retail revival earlier this year, as well as outperformance from some bigger components. Nike (NKE) was one of the Dow Jones Industrial Average's five best performers this quarter, while Amazon.com (AMZN) made the S&P 500's  top 10 list. The  Consumer Discretionary Select Sector SPDR (XLY) rose 2.6% in the quarter.

    How to Trade a Broken (looking) Market (Hint: Carefully)

    Again very carefully.  Are the new Facebook (FB) privacy disclosures enough?  Or will Mr. Zuckerberg go to Washington?  Stock is now “reasonable” at 18x for 18% 2018e EPS growth.  Maybe you need a bigger cushion here? Amazon (AMZN) is on its on valuation planet, but just broke it’s 50 day moving average hard.  Stock is back where it was all the way back in…January.  Hmmmm. Google (GOOGL) is now getting caught up in the Facebook scandal.  Rightly or wrongly, we don’t know yet, but the stock has broken all support and is on its own.  The stock is only 19.5x e EPS for the next 12 months earnings growth of 30%.  So it is getting in that cheap with a cushion range.

    What’s Driving Consumer Goods and Material Orders Higher?

    Sectors like retail (XRT), including brick and mortar and online retailers (IBUY), are impacted by changes in consumer demand. At the same time, a lower level of demand for consumer goods could impact inflation (TIP) growth and aggregate demand in the economy, eventually leading to a recession. According to the latest conference board LEI report, new orders for consumer goods and materials were reported to have increased for the fourth-straight month to $141.05 billion from $140.98 billion.
