- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Edgewell Personal Care Co. manufactures and markets personal care products. The company's brand consists of Schick(R) and Wilkinson Sword(R) men's and women's shaving systems and disposable razors; Edge(R) and Skintimate(R) shave preparations; Playtex(R), Stayfree(R), Carefree(R) and o.b.

Edgewell Personal Care Co., formerly known as Energizer Holdings, is based in St Louis, United States. " (4/11/2018)
- 2. Wells Fargo analysts commented, "Wet Shave 6.4% vs. our 4.5% est., Sun & Skin Care +2.6% vs. our +3.0%, Feminine Care 7.3% vs. our 10.0% and All Other flat vs. our 2.0%. Gross margin was 42.8% (420bps y/y), well below our estimate of 46.9%. SG&A exp was up +3.6%, above our expectations but adv & promo exp was lower, down 3.2%, with EBIT margin 8.1% (580bps y/y), well below our estimate of 12.6%. FY18 Guidance Raised on Tax Benefit: (1) Organic sales growth down ~1% (vs. prior flat to down slightly); (2) adjusted EBIT margin ~flat y/y (prior +2025bps); and (3) Adjusted EPS of $3.90$4.10 (prior $3.80$4.00), reflecting a $0.10 benefit from the Tax Act and vs. our/consensus $3.92/$3.84. EPC appears to be flowing the entire $0.10 tax benefit to EPS. Bottom Line: EPC lowered its EBIT margin assumptions, but kept EPS unchanged (ex. taxes), leaving us confused where the difference is located (likely other belowtheline items)." (2/8/2018)
