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, "Church & Dwight has outpaced the industry in the past six months, courtesy of strong organic sales trend as well as focus on international business and acquisitions. These factors have helped the company retain its sturdy surprise record in third-quarter 2018, wherein the top and the bottom line rose year on year. While earnings gained from higher sales and lower taxes, sales were backed by consistent category growth and market share gains. We note that the company’s international business is steadily gaining from strong brands. Also, organic sales have been sturdy, courtesy of strength in global consumer products. Encouragingly, management raised organic sales view for 2018, while keeping net sales view intact. However, the company’s gross margin has been declining, due to higher commodity and transport costs. Further, performance in the Specialty Products unit has been dismal, thanks to lower dairy products demand." (1/8/2019)
  • 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "CHD reported a strong 3Q, incl. EPS of $0.58 (vs. YoY org sales (+5.4% in consumer) vs. Street +3.5%. Topline/GM % beat drove high- quality ~5% OI upside. CHD guided up FY18 org sales (~4% vs. ~3.5%) and updated its EPS outlook to $2.27 (vs. Street $2.28) as co. appropriately invests upside to sustain topline momentum. Quality of results (accelerating org sales, GM %/EPS beat) stand out in beleagured HPC group – CHD should trade higher. Strong 3Q stands out in a beleagured HPC group: CHD’s 3Q revs of $1,038M beat Street est. of $1,022M by 1.5% on +4.7% org sales, or +5.4% ex-Specialty (vs. +3.5% Street and +3% per CHD’s guidance), which continues to look very strong in comparison to HPC industry peers (i.e., PG/KMB/CL/CLX)."
