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’s shares have outperformed the industry in the past year, courtesy of strong organic sales trend, and focus on international business and portfolio expansion. Such factors drove the company in the first quarter of 2019, with the top line benefitting from continued category growth and healthy market share gains. Also, Church & Dwight acquired FLAWLESS, which is likely to contribute to the top line in 2019. For 2019, the company also expects gross margin expansion on efficient pricing and productivity improvement efforts. Notably, these factors cushioned the company from high commodity and input costs in the first quarter. During the quarter, sales remained soft in Church & Dwight’s Specialty Products unit, owing to soft volumes stemming from sluggish demand in the dairy industry." (5/30/2019)
  • 2. 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)
