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

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Church & Dwight stock:
  • 1. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We believe guidance for both organic sales growth (unchanged at +3.5%) and gross margin continues to look conservative, but expect any upside to be reinvested with little flow- through to EPS. CHD delivered in Q1, but shares barely budged (CHD +1% vs. S&P flat), as a great quarter has clearly become what’s expected. CHD is trading at a 28x CY20E P/E multiple, a +53% premium to Staples (vs. 3 and 5-year historical averages of ~+29%) and we see few catalysts to drive valuation higher from here. Therefore we maintain our Market Perform rating." (5/2/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Church & Dwight has outpaced the industry in the past six months. The company is gaining from strong organic sales trend, focus on international business and portfolio expansion. Such factors supported the company’s performance during the fourth quarter of 2018. Further, we note that the company’s international business is steadily gaining from strong brands. Management plans to continue strengthening the international platform and come up with products under some of its leading brands. However, Church & Dwight has a dismal gross margin trend. We note that high input costs and adverse impacts from U.S. tariffs weighed on gross margin during the fourth quarter. Consequently, gross margin fell 250 basis points. Apart from this, the company is exposed to currency fluctuations and competition from other players in the consumer products space." (4/9/2019)
