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 outpaced the industry in the past year, courtesy of strong organic sales trend as well as focus on international business and portfolio expansion. Such factors supported the company’s performance during the fourth quarter of 2018, with the top line benefitting from continued category growth and healthy market share gains. 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, gross margin has been dismal for a while. High costs and U.S. tariffs weighed on gross margin during the fourth quarter. We note that the company has initiated pricing actions to improve gross margin. Moreover, the company is exposed to currency fluctuations and competition from other players in the consumer products space." (2/8/2019)
  • 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)."
