Consumer products companies eye skincare startups, WSJ reports

Facing stagnant sales of household mainstays from diapers to detergent, Procter & Gamble (PG), Colgate-Palmolive (CL) and Unilever (UN, UL) are trying to crack the lucrative market for influencer-pitched, millennial-approved skincare products, The Wall Street Journal's Sharon Terlep and Jaewon Kang report. The consumer products companies are buying skincare startups selling expensive serums, creams and lotions, while relying on Instagram and Sephora to drive sales instead of drugstores and shopping malls, according to the report. According to people familiar with the matter, Drunk Elephant, one such startup that touts limited ingredients, is considering a sale and has drawn interest mostly from consumer-products companies.

Goldman Sachs upgrades Procter & Gamble to Buy, boosts price target to $125
Goldman Sachs analyst Jason English upgraded Procter & Gamble to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $125 from $114. The stock closed Thursday up 3c to $109.78. There is room for further relative outperformance of the shares despite their 41% rise over the past 52 weeks, English tells investors in a research note. Procter & Gamble's market share and organic sales growth turned around this past year, and the next year should mark a turn in its margin profile and profit growth "as relative organic strength sustains," adds the analyst. He sees potential for double-digit total shareholder return given his expectations for high-single-digit annual earnings growth coupled with the company's low-single-digit dividend yield.

Smart Global (SGH) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Needham analyst Rajvindra Gill saying the shares are down 31% since the start of 2019 as its Brazil segment continues to be pressured by falling memory pricing. 5. KB Home (KBH) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Raymond James with analyst Buck Horne saying the company's "healthy" orders in Q2 mitigate the downside risk.

Snap (SNAP) upgraded to In Line from Underperform at Evercore ISI and to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan. 3. Best Buy (BBY) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Jonathan Matuszewski saying survey and data work suggest Best Buy's greater push toward services will drive long-term value and customer wallet share. 4. Procter & Gamble (PG) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Lauren Lieberman saying the market is shrugging off Procter & Gamble's 5% organic sales growth in its fiscal Q3, with many investors thinking this is the best it can get. 5. Sonoco (SON) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst David Coleman saying the stock has outperformed over the past 3 months, benefiting from its "accretive acquisitions, favorable pricing, improvements in productivity, and a lower effective tax rate."

Hold
Colgate-Palmolive price target raised to $73 from $61 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy raised his price target for Colgate-Palmolive to $73 from $61 following the company's "solid" Q1 results. While a recovery in China will take time, Colgate-Palmolive is "importantly seeing progress" across key markets, including the U.S. and Latin America, and the Colgate Total relaunch is progressing in-line with expectations, Grundy tells investors in a research note. He views the company's sales recovery as "encouraging," but thinks the stock's current valuation limits upside potential. As such, he keeps a Hold rating on Colgate-Palmolive.

Colgate-Palmolive price target raised to $82 from $72 at Argus
Argus analyst Chris Graja raised his price target on Colgate-Palmolive to $82 and kept his Buy rating. The analyst cites the company's 2.4% dividend yield exceeding the 10-year Treasury note payout and expects that dividend to continue to increase. Graja also points to Colgate-Palmolive's accelerating organic sales growth in Q1 to 3% from 2% in Q4 driven by the management's more aggressive advertising initiatives, greater e-commerce product availability, and the company's high financial strength rating relative to his coverage universe.

JPMorgan upgrades Colgate-Palmolive to Neutral on improved sales growth
JPMorgan analyst Andrea Teixeira upgraded Colgate-Palmolive to Neutral from Underweight and raised her price target for the shares to $70 from $62. The company's organic growth is "finally starting to show consistent improvement," despite mixed signals from most recent scanner data in the U.S., Teixeira tells investors in a research note. For the first time in two years, Colgate-Palmolive delivered both volume and pricing growth when reporting quarterly results on Friday, says the analyst. She notes that while the company's global market share losses on a year-over-year basis are still lingering, its market share has been more stable sequentially.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Target (TGT) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Matthew McClintock saying Target is taking market share from a "much weaker" retailer subset than other positive traffic retailers. 2. Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank. 3. American Airlines (AAL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Michael Linenberg saying American's lowering of its earnings guidance range last week was not unexpected given the recent rise in fuel prices and grounding of its MAX fleet. The analyst thinks the resetting of expectations by management establishes a "floor" for American's share price and provides the company a bit more "cushion" around its earnings targets. 4. Colgate-Palmolive (CL) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Andrea Teixeira saying the company's organic growth is "finally starting to show consistent improvement," despite mixed signals from most recent scanner data in the U.S. 5. Adobe (ADBE) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Keith Weiss saying his field work, meetings with management and analysis of segment contribution margins have boosted his confidence in Adobe's ability to sustain EPS growth of over 20%, even if he assumes decelerating Digital Media growth.

Home Depot (HD) downgraded to Hold from Buy at DZ Bank and to Market Perform from Outperform at Telsey Advisory. 2. Chubb (CB) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Michael Zaremski saying he thinks the assumed catastrophe load embedded within consensus EPS forecasts is materially too low/optimistic, and as he has less confidence that the company will be able to organically grow policy counts in its peer-leading US high-net-worth personal home/auto businesses due to heightened competition from new entrants, one of whom is led by a spate of former Chubb executives. The analyst also lowered his price target on the shares to $131 from $141. 3. Heska (HSKA) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Benchmark wth analyst Bruce Jackson saying he reduced his estimates following the company's Q4 miss and "disappointing" 2019 guidance. 4. WW (WTW) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at DA Davidson, to Hold from Buy at SunTrust and Craig-Hallum, to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc, and to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer. 5.
