P&G to slash hundreds of factory jobs in Kansas, Iowa, WSJ reports

Procter & Gamble plans to slash hundreds of factory jobs in Kansas City, Kansas, and Iowa City, Iowa, and shift work to a plant being constructed in West Virginia, the Wall Street Journal reports. The company informed workers at a Kansas City dish-soap factory that the facility, which employees roughly 280 people, will close by the end of 2020, the report says. The company also announced plans to cut 500 jobs making hair products and body wash at an Iowa City factory, leaving 100 jobs intact, the report says. Reference Link

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Qualcomm (QCOM) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet with analyst Romit Shah saying with Broadcom's (AVGO) hostile takeover attempt now analogous to a "gun to the head," Qualcomm management is likely to more aggressively focus on driving shareholder value in order to remain a standalone franchise. 2. Twitter (TWTR) upgraded to Buy from Sell at Aegis with analyst Victor Anthony saying he believes 2018 will be an inflection point in owned and operated advertising for Twitter and he sees a return to double-digit growth in that area in 2019. 3. Procter & Gamble (PG) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Jason English saying he no longer sees enough downside to estimates to drive material underperformance for the stock. 4. Northrop Grumman (NOC) and Curtiss-Wright (CW) were upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo. 5. Ciena (CIEN) was upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs, while Adtran (ADTN) was upgraded to Neutral from Sell. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Nielsen shows improved two-week sales trends, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy says two-week sales growth in U.S. Nielsen channels improved sequentially for key home and personal care companies Colgate-Palmolive (CL), Church & Dwight (CHD) and Clorox (CLX), as well as beverage companies Monster Beverage (MNST), Coca-Cola (KO) and Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS). While overall growth remains tepid, sequential improvement in December for consumer spending, including staples, has been more upbeat, Grundy tells investors in a research note titled "Party Like It's 1999? Not Quite, But US Nielsen HPC/Bevs 2-Week Data Improves." The analyst favors shares of Church & Dwight, Procter & Gamble (PG), Dr Pepper and Monster.
