Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Colgate-Palmolive stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Colgate has outperformed the industry in the last three months driven by smooth progress on its savings plan. The company is progressing well with its Global Growth and Efficiency Program along with additional savings anticipated from the recent expansion of the program. Moreover, the company has been infamous with investors for its meet or beat earnings track record. It also remains confident of the brand building and productivity maximization initiatives, which are likely to boost results. However, Colgate has been witnessing strained margins lately due to higher raw material and packaging costs, as well as advertising expenses. Though the company expects improved adjusted gross margin in 2018, it anticipates advertising costs to remain high, which should hurt operating margin. Moreover, it expects the backdrop to remain challenging in 2018. Nonetheless, estimates have been lately stable ahead of first-quarter 2018 earnings release." (4/17/2018)
  • 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)
