    Kimberly-Clark (KMB) reported an improved sales and earnings performance in 1Q18. The company surpassed analysts’ expectations both on the sales and EPS fronts.

Jefferies lowered its price target to $102 per share from $110. Meanwhile, Wells Fargo reduced its target price on KMB stock to $92 from $100.
