    Here’s How Analysts Reacted to Kimberly-Clark’s 1Q18 Results

    Kimberly-Clark (KMB) reported an improved sales and earnings performance in 1Q18. The company surpassed analysts’ expectations both on the sales and EPS fronts. However, continued pressure on margins, promotional spending to drive volumes, and lower pricing remained a drag and continued to hurt its margins. The company’s gross margin fell significantly in 1Q18, which prompted a couple of analysts to lower the target price on Kimberly-Clark stock. 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.

    Kimberly-Clark (KMB) sustained its sales momentum in 1Q18.

    Consumer Staples Had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week

    The Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLP)—a basket of 34 companies in the sector—lost almost 3% Thursday, largely caused by the 16% drop in tobacco giant Philip Morris (PM), after its cigarette shipments fell more than expected and its heated-tobacco product—an area with high expectations for rapid growth—was experiencing headwinds in key market Japan. The company cited higher commodities and transportation costs as the cause of narrower margins, and admitted sales growth "has been challenging in a very difficult market environment." These three companies collectively comprise approximately 25% of the consumer-staples sector, which helps explain why the Consumer Staples ETF dropped 4.1% last week. It's no secret that Amazon.com (AMZN) and Walmart (WMT) have essentially made the retail space an oligopoly, says Mike O’Rourke, chief market strategist of JonesTrading.

    Procter & Gamble (PG) reported adjusted earnings of $1.00 per share in fiscal 3Q18, which came in ahead of analysts’ estimate of $0.98 and increased 4.2% YoY (year-over-year).

However, what didn’t sit well with investors was the company’s low EPS growth rate, especially given the benefits from favorable currency rates, the low tax rate environment, and strong productivity savings.
