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 surpassed the industry in the past six months, gaining from its focus on buyouts and constant innovations. These factors have been driving the company, which marked its sixth and third straight quarter of positive earnings and sales surprise, respectively in first-quarter 2018, wherein both the top and bottom lines rose year over year. Results were backed by contributions from Waterpik and continued organic sales growth. Organic sales were backed by strength in global consumer products growth, which in turn was fueled by higher volumes. However, the company’s gross margin remains pressurized owing to increased commodity and transport expenses. These hurdles, along with unfavorable brand mix are likely to dent 2018 gross margin. Nonetheless, expected market share and volume gains, benefits from recent tax reforms and focus on product launches and productivity programs keeps management encouraged about its 2018 show."
