Kimberly-Clark's growth story misunderstood at Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs analyst Jason English said Kimberly-Clark's growth story is misunderstood, resulting in shares that are undervalued. He expects an inflection in second half organic growth as China price pressures fade and market share losses are lapped. English said the Personal Care segment is set to resume its leadership role from emerging market penetration adn frequency gains, resulting in improving growth. The analyst views Kimberly-Clark shares as "compelling" and raised his price target to $157 from $151 and reiterated his Buy rating.

Hold
Kimberly-Clark initiated with a Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy started Kimberly-Clark with a Hold rating and $134 price target. The competitive environment is as difficult as it's been in years and emerging markets are unlikely to recover near-term, the analyst contends.

Deutsche sees Personal Care stocks giving up recent gains
Deutsche Bank analyst Faiza Alwy expects stocks in the Cosmetics, Household and Personal Care space to give up their recent gains. The market seems to have decided that 3G or Unilever (UN, UL) is interested in acquiring U.S. HPC stocks with the group up 11% year-to-date, Alwy tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees M&A as unlikely in the near-term and points out that interest rates are rising. Alwy keeps Hold ratings on Colgate-Palmolive (CL), Clorox (CLX), Edgewell Personal Care (EPC) and Kimberly-Clark (KMB).

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Dollar General (DG) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham with the firm's analyst saying the environment has become more difficult since the bullish analyst day last spring. The firm's analyst said shares do not appear to fully factor in sales and margin challenges and sees risk to Street expectations. 2. MEDNAX (MD) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Gary Taylor citing valuation following the recent rally in the shares. The analyst says he can't with confidence bump up his $69 price target given the multi-year slowdown of organic growth and its high Medicaid payor exposure. 3. Loxo Oncology (LOXO) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Yigal Nochomovitz saying the stock is now fairly valued. The reflect the equity financing in January which expanded the share count and rising R&D spend, the analyst cut his price target for the shares to $45 from $49. He believes, however, that Loxo management is executing the business plan well. 4. Kimberly-Clark (KMB) downgraded to Hold on competition, valuation at Societe Generale with analyst Iain Simpson saying price competition in the U.S. has picked up as P&G is becoming more aggressive with its mid-tier Luvs and competition in Brazil and China remains "tough." The analyst expects cost cutting to drive margins and views cash returns as "robust," but said valuation has caught up with fundamentals. 5. Ionis Pharmaceuticals (IONS) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman with analyst Salveen Richter saying Ionis has a "lackluster" track record of developing successful drugs and ongoing toxicity across multiple drugs. If volanesorsen is approved for FCS, Richter expects safety/compliance issues and the launch focus on specialists will result in limited returns, similar to drug Kynamro for high cholesterol.
