Is It Prudent to Avoid a Stock Like Colgate-Palmolive?
Is It Prudent to Avoid a Stock Like Colgate-Palmolive? Colgate-Palmolive has struggled to produce organic revenue growth over the last several years and there has been a marginal increase in terms of operating costs. The company generates more than half of its revenues outside the U.S. and the weakness of currencies in emerging markets like India is affecting costs. Not only is there a strong emergence of domestic players, but the improving performance of private labels is resulting in a loss of market share, stagnant revenues and stunted growth. Solid fundamentals and weak growth.
