Technical Earnings Preview: Kimberly-Clark in downtrend before news

The stock has been in a volatile downtrend, punctuated with many failed upside attempts, since late March of last year. If the news is a positive surprise, the following resistance levels could become potential upside objectives: $119, $121.34, $124.15, the $125 area, and $127.20. If the news is a negative surprise, the downtrend could resume at higher velocity. The notable pause in price decline since November could be voided as a support area. Support levels to watch as potential downside objectives are at $112.52, $109.67 which is the 52-week low, $105.52, and the $100 area.

Buy
Kimberly-Clark upgraded to Buy from Hold at Societe Generale
Societe Generale analyst Lain Simpson upgraded Kimberly-Clark to Buy saying the sell-off in shares is overdone and maintained a $131 price target. The analyst said US price competition is intense and input costs are rising, but these issues are well known and expects the operational recovery to be a medium term story.

Sell
Kimberly-Clark downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Wendy Nicholson downgraded Kimberly-Clark to Sell and cut her price target for the shares to $113 from $124. The analyst lowered her estimates for 2018 and 2019 to reflect "stiff competition" Kimberly-Clark faces "in multiple categories in multiple markets." She sees 2018 being a tough year for the company and further downside in the shares.
