Morningstar | Decaying sales and profits at wide-moat Colgate fail to indicate an eroding competitive edge.

Colgate chalked up tepid performance in 2017 (a 1% uptick in organic sales and flat margins) and through the first three quarters of fiscal 2018 (registering 0.5% organic sales and 100 basis points of adjusted operating margin contraction to less than 25%), but we don't think its competitive edge is showing signs of decay. While a few ancillary factors have constrained its top line (including a trucker strike in Brazil and retailer inventory destocking in China), we attribute a portion of the margin pressure to an uptick in inflationary headwinds and the decision to boost ad spending, which we...

Decaying sales and profits at wide-moat Colgate fail to indicate an eroding competitive edge.

Much angst followed Colgate’s tepid third-quarter results--as shares slumped 6%--which included a 0.5% organic sales decline, a 120-basis-point erosion in adjusted gross margins to 59.2%, and a 190-basis-point downtick in adjusted operating margins to 23.4%. However, we attribute this performance to a few ancillary macro factors, as opposed to signaling cracks in its wide moat. For one, the bulk of the sales shortfall stemmed from two markets, Brazil and China. In Brazil, volume pressure ensued ...

Morningstar | Decaying Sales and Profits at Colgate Not Indicative of an Eroding Edge; Shares Getting Attractive

Much angst followed Colgate’s tepid third-quarter results--as shares slumped 6%--which included a 0.5% organic sales decline, a 120-basis-point erosion in adjusted gross margins to 59.2%, and a 190-basis-point downtick in adjusted operating margins to 23.4%. However, we attribute this performance to a few ancillary macro factors, as opposed to signaling cracks in its wide moat. For one, the bulk of the sales shortfall stemmed from two markets, Brazil and China. In Brazil, volume pressure ensued as it opted to raise prices to offset higher costs, actions that have yet to be matched by its peer...
