What are analysts saying about Kimberly Clark Corp stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Kimberly Clark Corp stock:
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Kimberly-Clark reported better-than-expected results in the fourth quarter of 2016, wherein both earnings and revenues beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Adjusted earnings increased 2.1% from the year-ago figure, boosted by cost savings, improved operating profits and lower tax rates. However, sales were flat from the prior-year quarter, mainly due to foreign currency headwinds. Higher volumes were offset by the decline in net selling prices and product mix. Further, organic sales increased just 1% in the quarter, and were sluggish from the preceding quarters. Moreover, the company provided weak sales forecast for 2017. In fact, the company’s shares have been declining since past one year as compared to the Zacks Categorized industry. Though Kimberly-Clark expects higher cost savings and continued product innovation to drive growth, it anticipates currency volatility, increased competition and higher marketing expenses to hurt profits."

Argus analysts commented, "We would consider returning the stock to our BUY list in the event of a nonfundamental pullback or moderating foreign exchange headwinds." (5/2/2016)
