What are Wall Street analysts saying about Church & Dwight stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Church & Dwight stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Although Church & Dwight has outdone the industry in the past month, the trend may reverse in the near term, on account of dismal gross margin performance and underlying weakness in its Specialty Products unit. In fact, the company’s gross margin remains pressurized due to increased commodity and transport costs. These hurdles, along with oral care product recall issues led to a gloomy gross margin outlook for 2018. Nonetheless, expected market share and volume gains, focus on product launches and productivity programs encouraged management to slightly pull up its top and bottom-line views. Apart from these the company’s acquisitions, international business and innovations have been yielding well. These factors helped the company retain its sturdy surprise record in second-quarter 2018, wherein both the top and bottom lines rose year over year. Also, strength in global consumer products has been fueling organic sales." (10/3/2018)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "Our view that CHD remains an undervalued, core holding was reinforced after recent investor meetings in Europe with CEO Matt Farrell and CFO Rick Dierker. Although pragmatic on the risks facing the industry, CHD’s long history of acquiring/growing brands, enhancing returns, and high EPS visibility make it among the best-in-class" staples stocks, in our view. No change to est./PT – attractive valuation at 20x EV/ULFCF (modest premium to peers)." (6/10/2018)
