Morningstar | Facing an Onslaught of Competitive and Macro Headwinds, Kimberly Is Investing to Steady Its Course

Even in an intensely competitive landscape, we believe Kimberly-Clark derives its narrow moat from its entrenched relationships with retailers and the resources it maintains to invest behind its brand mix in terms of both product innovation and marketing. In the aggregate, this spending equated to more than 5% of sales, or $1 billion annually on average the past five years.
