" (10/3/2017)
  • 2. Royal Bank Of Canada analysts commented, "CLX delivered a soft 3Q EPS beat, including org sales (+1.7% vs. Street +3.1%) and GM% (-110 bps vs. Street) misses, offset by $0.05 of help from below the line items. CLX implicitly lowered org sales guidance, though narrowed its EPS range. Given the stock’s underperformance (-3.6% vs. S&P 500 +0.7% since 4/25) in a very tough earnings season for CPG cos., we believe the poor results were likely well vetted and expect a muted stock reaction to the soft qtr. Low quality 3Q EPS beat: Reported 3Q revs of $1.48B were slightly below consensus as +1.7% org sales fell short of Street estimates of 3.1%. Gross margins of 44.0% came in 110 bps below Street est. (driven by commodities, negative mix, and higher trade spend), driving a ~2.5% gross profit miss. SG&A was relatively in-line (26.9% vs. Street 27.0%) as OI missed by 6%. Below the line items (primarily lower tax rate) were a $0.05 benefit vs. our model as EPS of $1.31 beat Street est. by $0.01 on lower quality. Lifestyle and Household segments drive weakness: Cleaning delivered strong +6.9% org sales growth vs. Street +3.1%, with segment pre-tax earnings of $132M +4% ahead of Street est. Household org sales of ~-2% came in below Street est. of flat, with segment pre- tax earnings of $106M -11% below Consensus. Lifestyle fell well short of expectations at -3.1% org sales declines vs. Street +2.5%, with segment pre-tax earnings of $51M -30% vs. Consensus." (5/3/2017)
