Clorox price target lowered to $130 from $140 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog lowered her price target for Clorox to $130 from $140 as she is cautiously optimistic heading into Q1 earnings given strong global macros and increasingly attractive sector valuations, but remains cognizant of mediocre top-line growth, little pricing power, an elevated competitive environment, and commodity/transportation headwinds. The analyst reiterates a Market Perform rating on the shares.

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. Clorox (CLX) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Dara Mohsenian saying valuation looks "stretched" on muted earnings growth and lowered his fiscal 2019 earnings estimate by 2% to reflect deterioration in U.S. Household Products sector. 2. Adtran (ADTN) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst Jim Kelleher saying the company has pushed out its expectations for a key client conducting a strategic review of spending, leading to revenue decline for its North America segment to an all-time low. 3. Align Technology (ALGN) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Steve Beuchaw saying his web trends tracking implies growth in the next 1-2 quarters slows to 25% from 35%. 4. ConocoPhillips (COP) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Edward Jones with analyst Jason Gammel citing valuation following the recent rally in the shares. 5. Valvoline (VVV) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Longbow with analyst Dmitry Silversteyn saying he sees a slower pace of price realization in Quick Lubes combined with a higher cost outlook, limiting earnings upside.

Deutsche Bank downgrades Procter & Gamble, Church & Dwight to Hold
Deutsche Bank analyst Steve Powers downgraded both Procter & Gamble (PG) and Church & Dwight (CHD) to Hold from Buy saying Household & Personal Care is "in a tough spot." The analyst expects incremental pricing pressure to build over the course of 2018 in many categories. Perhaps as a result of tax reform, combined with pre-existing competition, retailers and manufacturers seem willing to reinvest aggressively in order to preserve share, Powers tells investors in a research note. He views this as a "troublesome set-up" for Household & Personal Care names. Along with the two downgrades, the analyst lowered his price targets for Kimberly-Clark (KMB), Edgewell Personal (EPC), Colgate-Palmolive (CL) and Clorox (CLX).

Clorox price target lowered to $131 from $147 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Shannon Coyne lowered her price target on Clorox to $131, saying that while Q3 earnings were better than expected, investors have taken down the group multiples on multiple contraction. Coyne also notes the slowdown in Lifestyle and Household segment growth, impacted in part by reduced cold weather demand. The analyst keeps his Outperform rating on Clorox, stating that it should outperform the rest of the group on "stronger pricing power" and digital competency.
