By Burkett Huey | Associate Equity Analyst Most of our Ultimate Stock-Pickers have never been mistaken for dividend investors.

Analysts expect Procter & Gamble (PG) to report weak sales in the near term, especially in the first two quarters of fiscal 2019. Procter & Gamble’s net sales growth rate could decelerate sequentially. Rivals’ expanding in-store and direct-to-consumer propositions are likely to hurt the company’s grooming segment. Meanwhile, competitors’ aggressive pricing in the Baby Care segment could also present a hurdle. Adverse currency rates and macroeconomic challenges in the Middle East, Latin America, and Africa will likely remain a drag.
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.

Brian Athaide, a 25-year veteran of the "most mainstream company on earth," was named CEO of The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings in early July.

Target Corp. has begun stocking Native Deodorant, an upstart brand of deodorants and soaps, in the latest example of the retailer partnering with brands that got their start online.
Online startups selling personal-care products from razors to deodorant are trying a radical new way to reach customers: the bricks-and-mortar retailer. More small, internet-only consumer brands are turning to physical retail space for growth, a shift that is happening as companies encounter the limitations of selling directly to consumers and as retailers become more open to lesser-known brands. Rising costs to advertise online are also driving brands back to stores as they find that buying shelf space, either with a dedicated store or by moving into an existing retailer, is a cheaper way to gain notice.
