Kimberly-Clark suffered from a weak result which was a stark contrast to the company’s record strong growth in the year-ago quarter. The company failed to meet analyst expectations in terms of revenues as well as earnings and the only silver lining was the personal care organic sales growing by 6% worldwide, driven by a 4% volume increase. The company saw a decent personal care organic sales performance in markets like China, Brazil, Eastern Europe, Peru, India, and South Africa. Their K-C Professional business also did well as the management observed strength in international markets and positive trends in washroom products. Furthermore, the management revealed that they would continue to execute K-C Strategy 2022 and invest in their business for the future. This includes investments in innovation, technology, and commercial capabilities. The company continues to face inflationary pressures and higher input costs which are expected to continue pulling down the margins. With hardly any strong catalysts to boost the stock price in the near future, we maintain our ‘Hold’ rating on the stock with a revised target price.
