What are Wall Street analysts saying about Clorox stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Clorox stock:
  • 1. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We were encouraged by mgmt’s confidence in the 2H turnaround and believe issues are isolated within Charcoal/Glad as the rest of the portfolio is performing well (see our note here) That said, while valuation has become more reasonable, we think top-line headwinds are likely to weigh on the stock’s overall narrative, and shares will likely remain range-bound in the near-term until fundamental improvement becomes evident over the next few quarters. Given weak relative top-line performance and near-term challenges, we lower our EPS estimates and maintain our Market Perform rating." (8/1/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Clorox lagged the industry in the past six months owing to ongoing impacts from elevated commodity costs, adverse currency rates as well as increased manufacturing and logistics expenses. Driven by these factors, the company reported dismal earnings and sales in third-quarter fiscal 2019. This marked the first earnings miss after nine straight quarters of beat, while sales lagged estimates for the third time in the last four quarters. Further, the company narrowed sales view for 2019, anticipating a milder cold and flu season, as well as increased promotional activity in the Wipes category. It also expects tariffs to weigh on earnings in 2019. However, the company’s cost savings plans and pricing strategy cushioned results. The company's 2020 Strategy, aimed at bolstering growth of categories and overall market share, also bodes well." (7/29/2019)
