    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.

    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.

    Chester manufacturing plant to get $150M upgrade

    Kimberly-Clark Corp. announced plans to invest $150 million in its Chester manufacturing plant.  The funds will go into installing a natural gas-fired plant that will replace a coal-fired co-generation power plant as well as other infrastructure upgrades, the company said. The Chester facility located at One Avenue of the States makes Scott 1000 toilet paper for the North American market and has done so for more than 100 years.  Kimblerly-Clark (NYSE: KMB), based in Neenah, Wis., received $6 million from the state’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program to finance the new gas-fired plant, which is expected to be more energy efficient and reduce emissions. Kimblery-Clark bought Chester-based Scott Paper Co. in 1995.  “Kimberly-Clark continues to fulfill its commitment to reinvesting in our U.S. business,” said Adrian Poretti, vice president of supply chain for Kimberly-Clark North America in a statement.

    From Unilever to Ford, companies in Venezuela cling on by cutting products

    CARACAS/VALENCIA, Venezuela (Reuters) - Unilever's factory in the outskirts of the northern Venezuelan city of Valencia once bustled with activity as it produced everything from soap to toothpaste for one of South America's wealthiest economies. Now, with Venezuela struggling with a fifth year of recession and its economy wracked by hyperinflation, there are few signs of activity. The Anglo-Dutch conglomerate has quietly scaled back its output in the crisis-stricken oil-producing nation to a single product - Tio Rico ice cream - produced in Valencia and at another plant in Barquisimeto, some 90 miles (145 km) to the west.

    Asia's Richest Banker May Acquire Rivals After RBI's Rebuff

    A rebuff from the regulator may set Asia’s richest banker Uday Kotak on a $17 billion acquisition trail, as he seeks to meet a year-end deadline to reduce his stake in Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd. below 20 percent. Buying another financial firm may be the most palatable way for Kotak to pare his holding, following the Reserve Bank of India’s rejection earlier this month of a preference share sale proposal. If the bank issues about 1.2 trillion rupees ($17 billion) of new stock to back an acquisition, that would effectively dilute the billionaire’s holding below the 20 percent target.
