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 long been driving the company, which marked its fifth straight earnings beat in fourth-quarter 2017, wherein both top and bottom lines rose year over year. While results were backed by broad-based growth, the Consumer International unit has been a key catalyst for quite some time now. Further, organic sales retained its solid growth trend, backed by higher volumes. However, the company expects higher SG&A costs and marketing spend in 2018, wherein an intense promotional environment is expected to persist. Also, increased commodity and transport expenses are likely to impact gross margin. Nonetheless, expected gains from recent tax reforms and focus on product launches and productivity programs keep management encouraged about delivering earnings growth of 16-18% in 2018." (4/17/2018)
- 2. Wells Fargo analysts commented, "We expect shares to trade up today. That said, valuation remains rich in our view, and, as such, we maintain our Market Perform rating." (2/5/2018)
