According to Zacks Investment Research, "Colgate lagged the industry in the past three months as its margins continue to be strained due to higher raw material and packaging costs. Notably, the company reported second straight quarter of negative gross margin and fourth consecutive quarter of operating margin decline in first-quarter 2018. Moreover, Colgate expects the backdrop to remain challenging in 2018 due to uncertain global markets and slowing category growth worldwide. However, the company has been popular with investors for its meet or beat earnings track record. Continuing with this trend, the company delivered an earnings beat in first-quarter 2018, after three consecutive quarters of in line earnings. Results continue to be driven by sales growth and significant market share gains. The company remains on track with the brand building and productivity maximization initiatives. It is also encouraged by the progress on Global Growth and Efficiency Program." (7/2/2018) 2. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "CL’s 4Q print was disappointing w/org sales of +2% (vs. +3.4% Street) and GM%/OI below expectations. 4Q EPS of $0.75 was in-line with revs/GM% miss partially offset by lower SG&A and $0.02 from taxes. FY18 guide implies tepid low-to-mid single digit % underlying EPS growth (ex-Tax Act/FX benefits), which should augment HPC group GM % worries w/higher commodity costs, constrained pricing, and need for higher investment. We expect CL’s shares to trade down." (1/26/2018) Who are some of Colgate-Palmolive's key competitors?
