U.S. President Donald…

U.S. President Donald Trump's administration is weighing invoking special powers through a law called the Defense Production Act to quickly expand domestic output of protective masks and clothing to fight the spread of coronavirus in the U.S., Reuters' Ted Hesson and Alexandra Alper reports, citing U.S. officials. The use of the law would mark an escalation of the White House's response to the outbreak, the authors note. Publicly traded companies that manufacture protective masks include Honeywell (HON), 3M (MMM), Kimberly-Clark (KMB) and Alpha Pro Tech (APT). Reference Link

Evercore ISI analyst Robert Ottenstein initiated coverage of Reynolds Consumer Products (REYN) with an Outperform rating and $35 price target. The stock is a "contender for the blue-chip, bond-proxy status" that Staples shares such as Kimberly-Clark (KMB) and Clorox (CLX) have given Reynolds' leading position in mature categories with sticky demand and high barriers to entry, Ottenstein tells investors.

Kimberly-Clark CFO Maria Henry said on the company's Q4 earnings call that the company has announced seven of the approximately 10 facilities that it expects to close or sell and taken action on six of those. "In 2020, we will start up approximately 20 new assets globally, which is roughly twice the level of activity that we would have in a typical year," stated Henry. The company is "about 70% to 75% of the way through" pretax charges and workforce reductions, while cash payments related to restructuring are about 65% complete, Henry added. So far, the company has generated $300M of savings compared to its total program target of $500M-$550M by the end of 2021, the CFO said.

Kimberly-Clark CFO Maria Henry said on the company's Q4 earnings call that that for 2020 the company expects commodities will be "somewhat favorable, mostly offset by currency headwinds, particularly in Latin America." Spending will remain elevated in 2020 because of restructuring, Henry added. The company returned $2.2B to shareholders via dividends and share repurchases in 2019 and expects to return "a similar level of cash to shareholders in 2020," Henry added on the call, which is ongoing.
