What are Wall Street analysts saying about Procter & Gamble stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Procter & Gamble stock:
  • 1. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "We attended Cincinnati, where the co. reiterated its outlook and announced it will change its internal organizational structure to better empower local business units and improve accountability – an area of focus in last year’s heated proxy battle with Nelson Peltz. We commend the co.’s decision, but remain on the sidelines awaiting greater signs of sustained fundamental improvement, while valuation at 20x NTM P/E appears full." (11/9/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Procter & Gamble outpaced the industry in a month. This can be attributed to the company’s first-quarter fiscal 2019 results, wherein both top and bottom lines came ahead of the Zacks Consensus Estimate with the latter marking its 14th straight beat. Moreover, earnings grew year over year though sales remained flat, largely due to adverse currency fluctuations – which acted as a major deterrent in the first quarter and is likely to remain a concern in the second quarter. Also, the company has been witnessing strained margins for last few quarters owing to higher commodity and shipping costs, adverse currency, increased business investments and aggressive pricing from private-label products. Soft baby care business is also a concern. Nonetheless, the company remains focused on improving productivity and cost savings to boost margins. Its focus on product improvement, packaging and marketing initiatives remain encouraging." (10/24/2018)
  • 3. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We still believe PG is on the right track, but remain concerned with slow progress despite a focus on improving speed & agility. We also continue to see limited n.t. positive catalysts as FY19 guidance is 2H weighted, with pricing not being realized until late FY19. We maintain our $78 price target & Market Perform rating." (8/16/2018)
