Morningstar | Inflation's Eating Into Kimberly-Clark's Profits, but Competitive Edge Hasn't Shown Signs of Cracks

Even amid 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 equates to more than 5% of sales, or $1 billion annually. We view this level of investment as a means by which to help the firm withstand competitive pressures from other global peers and smaller, niche foes that have proved agile in responding to evolving local consumer tastes and preferences. Kimberly is ma...

Inflation's Eating Into Kimberly-Clark's Profits, but Competitive Edge Hasn't Shown Signs of Cracks

We don’t expect to change our $112 fair value estimate for narrow-moat Kimberly-Clark following third-quarter results that leave the firm tracking in line with our full-year outlook, outside of incorporating the impact of the time value of money (which should add $1-$2 per share to our valuation). Organic sales ticked up 1% in the quarter, reflecting a 2% benefit from higher prices and improved mix that was only partially offset by a 1% reduction in volumes. However, margins eroded (adjusted gro...

Organic sales ticked up 1% in the quarter, reflecting a 2% benefit from higher prices and improved mix that was only partially offset by a 1% reduction in volumes.

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. However, the growth profile is not what it once was and the sector's valuation has contracted as it works through a series of challenges. Analysis of these issues suggests it is too e...
