US HPC - Initiating Coverage: O/W: EL, CHD & PG; N: CLX & CL; U/W: KMB

For many years, the Household Products and Personal Care (HPC) sector offered attractive long term growth providing products that address the daily needs of millions of consumers around the world. Underlying mid-single digit category growth was supported by innovation, pricing, acquisitions and geographic expansion to support attractive high single digit sales growth which saw the sector earn a premium valuation.

Morningstar | Despite external headwinds, Colgate proves steadfast in supporting its leading competitive edge.

Colgate chalked up tepid performance in 2017 (a 1% uptick in organic sales and flat margins) and through the first half of fiscal 2018 (registering 1% organic sales and 50 basis points of adjusted operating margin contraction to 25.5%), but we don't portend its competitive edge will show signs of decay. While headwinds have constrained its top line, we attribute a portion of the margin pressure to the firm's decision to boost ad spending, which we believe stands to support its leading brand mix and value-added innovation. Further, we surmise this spending entrenches Colgate's position with ret...

However, the firm has been working to extract excess costs, benefiting gross margins 170 basis points in the quarter. When netted against a few ancillary items, adjusted gross margin...
