Morningstar | Higher Prices Are Aiding Kimberly-Clark’s Near-Term Sales, but Competitive Headwinds Persist

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. We view this level of investment as a way to differentiate its fare and sustain its retail relationships, which is essential in light of the competitive pressures it faces from other global peers and smaller, niche foes tha...

Higher Prices Are Aiding Kimberly-Clark’s Near-Term Sales, but Competitive Headwinds Persist

We don’t expect to alter our $113 fair value estimate for narrow-moat Kimberly-Clark following first-quarter results that included 3% organic sales growth (5% benefit from higher prices and favorable mix was offset by a 2% volume downdraft) and 17.4% adjusted operating margins (flat with the year ago period). This was the second quarter in a row the firm chalked up 3% organic top-line gains, after posting a string of more muted top-line performance the past few years. However, we don’t yet posit...

Morningstar | Kimberly Strings Together Another Quarter of Increased Sales, but Pressures Persist; Shares Heated

This was the second quarter in a row the firm chalked up 3% organic top-line gains, after posting a string of more muted top-line performance the past few years. However, we don’t yet posit this signals the firm has steadied its footing. Rather, we expect Kimberly’s near-term sales trajec...
