    What Could Restrict the Upside in Kimberly-Clark Stock?

    Shares of Kimberly Clark (KMB) have recovered a bit recently, as you can see in the graph below. The company’s decision to raise net pricing in the North American consumer product business is an encouraging move, likely to help the company offset the negatives stemming from continued inflation in raw material prices. Moreover, most of the company’s peers—including Procter & Gamble (PG), Colgate-Palmolive (CL), and Clorox (CLX)—are also raising prices to offset the impact of input cost headwinds.

    What’s Hurting Colgate-Palmolive Stock?

    Colgate-Palmolive (CL), which has disappointed so far this year with its soft sales and tepid margins, further disheartened investors by reducing its sales and earnings outlook for 2018. Management now expects its top line to see low-single-digit growth, down from its earlier guidance of mid-single digit growth. Colgate-Palmolive’s top line is likely to benefit from the company’s recent acquisition in North America.

    PG, KMB, CL, CLX, and CHD: What Valuations and Ratings Suggest

    Church & Dwight (CHD) is trading at a significant premium to its peer group average, reflecting the company’s outperformance on both the sales and earnings fronts over the past several quarters. However, given the recent uptrend in the stock and projected deceleration in the sales and earnings growth rate in fiscal 2019, the shares look fully priced. Church & Dwight stock trades at 26.1x and 24.3x its projected EPS of $2.28 and $2.45 in fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2019, respectively. The company’s high valuation could restrict the upside.

    Why Consumer Packaged Goods Stocks May Be Unattractive

    Consumer packaged goods (or CPG) manufacturers haven’t had much to celebrate so far this year.

    Structural Changes Won’t Change the Narrative for Unilever Stock

    Unilever (NYSE:UL, NYSE:UN) appears poised for a new future under a simplified business framework. Although this will leave one Unilever stock instead of two, I see no other differences easily visible to shareholders. Whether dealing with one Unilever stock or two, investors still need to evaluate this equity based on financial metrics and business conditions.
