  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Colgate surpassed the industry year to date owing to a robust surprise trend, which continued in first-quarter 2019. This marked the second straight quarter of sales beat and third positive earnings surprise of the last five quarters. Robust volumes and favorable pricing aided organic sales growth in the quarter. In 2019, the company expects benefits of pricing and productivity programs to considerably offset rise in raw material costs. Accelerated investments in brands, strong innovation, and expansion in new markets and channels, is likely to aid sales in 2019. However, the company is plagued with a soft margins and currency headwinds for a while now. Increased raw material and packaging costs as well as higher SG&A expenses are likely to hurt margins throughout 2019. Further, adverse currency should mar earnings and sales in 2019." (6/7/2019)
