Escalating cost has become a major cause of concern for the company. High retirement benefit cost, inflation in the prices of major inputs and escalating freight expenses might continue to augment the company’s aggregate cost, in turn, hurting its near-term profitability. Notably, 3M has lowered its earnings guidance for 2018. Also, other headwinds like stiff competition from local players and supply contract issues remain causes of concern." (7/15/2018)
