Colgate-Palmolive (CL) Stock: $80 Target And Equal-Weight Rating

Aug 8, 2022

The shares of Colgate-Palmolive (CL) recently received an $80 price target from Wells Fargo. These are the details. The shares of Colgate-Palmolive (CL) recently received an $80 price target from Wells Fargo. And Wells Fargo analyst Chris Carey upgraded Colgate-Palmolive to an “Equal-Weight” rating from an “Underweight” rating while increasing the price target from $71. Carey adjusted the rating after noting that the premise over the last few years that margins would be under pressure effectively played out. And Carey pointed out that the 2022 EPS is still expected to be down mid-single digits but feels that a turn seems much closer than the “reversal.” Plus Carey does not see many good reasons to stay negative going forward. And Carey sees a growing flex this year, especially around the margins. Trending on Pulse 2.0
