KeyBanc initiated coverage on Colgate-Palmolive Company (NYSE: CL) with a Sector Weight rating. Analyst Jason Gere sees valuation as fair.
"CL’s track record of best-in-class and above-category organic growth trends from favorable LT geographic exposures, dominant market share positions and robust margin structure with further expansion opportunity can continue. Recent EM slowdown and competitive pressures, though, likely keep organic growth closer to the low end of the 4-7% range. Currently trading at a premium to historical averages and large-cap peers, valuation feels fair and multiple expansion feels difficult until growth reaccelerates, limiting the upside we need to see in shares to launch with a more positive view," said the analyst.
Shares of Colgate-Palmolive Company closed at $73.76 yesterday.
