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 topped the industry in the past month courtesy of focus on brand building and productivity maximization initiatives. This helped the company retain its meet or beat earnings track record, with in line earnings in second-quarter 2018. Colgate expects double-digit increase in GAAP earnings per share in 2018 fueled by the expanded Global Growth and Efficiency Program. Further, it estimates mid-single-digit adjusted earnings per share growth. Moreover, the company’s foray in organic products with the rollout of the Naturals range in Asia and across Europe and expected launches in Latin America and Africa Euroasia bodes well. However, the company’s margins continue to be strained due to higher raw material and packaging costs. Further, its top line missed estimates in 16 of the last 17 quarters. Additionally, the company expects a challenging backdrop in 2018 due to uncertain global markets and slowing category growth worldwide." (9/18/2018) 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.
