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, "Colgate lagged the industry in the past three months due to dismal sales trend with a miss in 16 of the last 17 quarters. Although sales in most of the company’s segments increased year over year in second-quarter 2018, soft volumes in Central America led to decline in net and organic sales for Latin America. It anticipates foreign exchange to adversely affect net sales in second-half 2018. Moreover, the company has been witnessing strained margins for the past few quarters, due to increased raw material and packaging costs. Also, it expects a challenging backdrop in 2018 due to uncertain global markets and slowing category growth worldwide. However, the company's focus on brand building and productivity maximization initiatives is encouraging. It expects double-digit increase in GAAP earnings per share in 2018 fueled by the Global Growth and Efficiency Program. Further, it estimates mid-single-digit adjusted earnings per share growth." (10/5/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We maintain our FY18/FY19 EPS estimates by $3.02/$3.27 and our $64 price target." (7/27/2018)
  • 3. 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)
