What are Wall Street analysts saying about Colgate-Palmolive stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Colgate-Palmolive stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Colgate have declined and underperformed the industry in the past six months, driven by its strained margin trend. In third-quarter 2019, escalated expenses of raw and packaging materials, including foreign-currency transaction costs, hurt gross margin. This coupled with higher SG&A expenses, as a rate of sales, hurt operating profits. Consequently, earnings fell year over year and are likely to decline in mid-single digits in 2019. Also, adverse currency impacts cannot be ignored. Nevertheless, Colgate expects strong top-line gains from accelerated investments in brands, pricing and innovation along with expansion in new markets and e-commerce capabilities. Moreover, it expects to sustain organic sales growth trend in 2019, backed by higher volume and pricing. Management now estimates organic sales growth of 3-4%." (11/4/2019)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We are raising our price target by $3 to $68 to reflect CL’s fundamental progress to date, but maintain our Market Perform rating largely on valuation." (6/17/2019)
