The company has capitalized on the pandemic through increased e-commerce sales

The Covid-19 pandemic created a need for most consumer goods companies to build a strong online marketing strategy. Colgate-Palmolive (CL) reacted well to this changing business environment and went on to deliver strong results across 2020.

The company's growth has been driven by organic as well as inorganic factors in both the oral care as well as the skincare segments in 2020. Despite a decent performance, its valuation multiples have not skyrocketed so far, and the company's stock is trading at a reasonable valuation in my view. I am optimistic about the company's performance in 2021 given the management's increased

The stock of Colgate-Palmolive Co (NYSE:CL, 30-year Financials) is estimated to be fairly valued, according to GuruFocus Value calculation.

Although the demand for its disinfectant and cleaning products may slow, Clorox still has a large and profitable presence

There's little doubt that The Clorox Co. (CLX) will see its growth slow down as the Covid-19 pandemic recedes. Does that mean this cleaning products company is no longer a good investment?

That seems unlikely, in my opinion. With a couple of exceptions, the share price has risen relatively steadily for the past 30 of its more than 100 years of existence:

They are long term dividend payers

Wheaton Precious Metals Corp (WPM), Colgate-Palmolive Co (CL) and W.P. Carey Inc (WPC) announced quarterly dividends on Thursday, March 11.

These large cap stocks appeal to dividend investors as they have been paying dividends already for several years. In addition, the next payments will represent dividend increases.

Wheaton Precious Metals Corp (WPM)

The Canadian gold and silver streaming company announced that on April 13, it will pay a quarterly cash dividend of 13 cents per common share. The payment will be an 8.3% increase from the previous one. Shareholders must be on the company's books no later than March 26

One of the world's oldest companies keeps finding new ways to keep growing

Colgate-Palmolive (CL) is an old dog keeps learning new tricks. The Colgate-Palmolive Company has a three-pronged strategy for driving new growth:

  • Premium innovation in its core businesses,
  • Opportunities in adjacent categories,
  • Expanding in channels and markets that are growing quickly.

On the innovation in its core business, President and CEO Noel Wallace explained in the 2019 annual report that several of its flagship products had been reformulated. For example:

  • It 'reinvigorated' its Hill's Science Diet for pets with upgraded recipes, 'improved' kibble shapes and redesigned packaging.
  • In India, its anti-cavity toothpaste was reformulated with

A valuable source of organic growth

With respect to corporate strategy, the term “white space” is both ubiquitous and ambiguous. Various interpretations exist - e.g., a new market, a growth engine or a business opportunity.

When it comes to stock picking, we at Urbem would simply define the white space as the untapped geographies or populations that offer room for long-term growth to a particular product or service of a business.

In our opinion, investors should favor well-moated, consistently high-return companies embracing a huge but under-recognized white space. The expansion of such businesses is usually organic, predictable and value-generative, being less prone to the competitive

I have been focusing my own personal investing on the more recession proof areas of the economy

With markets alternating large swings up or down nearly every trading day for the past few weeks, investors continue to see the values of their retirement portfolios seesaw back and forth. This can be a paralyzing experience for some. As I write this, the S&P 500 is down more than 22% for the year.

I have focused on acquiring shares of the safer, more recession proof stocks for my own personal portfolio, like consumer staples, health care and utilities, during this time. While Covid-19 has resulted in many states ordering people to stay home unless traveling for work, medical care

Colgate’s (CL) shares were slightly weaker during the quarter due to modestly softer gross margins. We continue to like the company and view fourth quarter performance as immaterial to the long-term investment thesis.

Winners keep winning

The legendary performance of racehorse Secretariat in 1973 is a strong demonstration that winners tend to keep winning. Now ranked number 35 by ESPN on the list of the 20th century’s top athletes, the “Big Red” accomplished nine wins in 12 races that year, including the first Triple Crown since World War II, making the season the single richest in the history of the horse race to that point.

At Urbem, we believe that the phenomenon of Secretariat is highly applicable to the competitive business world. This is why when picking stocks, we incline ourselves to avoid turnaround stories

The company's strategy could boost its financial performance

Colgate-Palmolive Company (CL) could deliver further stock price growth, in my view, following its 16% rise in the past year.

The consumer goods company is investing in its website, improving its sustainability credentials and aiming to become more efficient.

Sustainable focus

The company is increasing its investment in sustainable products to resonate with consumers who are increasingly environmentally and socially conscious. It has reported strong customer demand for its Bamboo toothbrush and Charcoal toothpaste products, which were launched in fiscal 2019.

In addition, Colgate-Palmolive launched the world’s first recyclable toothpaste tube in fiscal 2019 and

Colgate-Palmolive (CL) is a stable business that has been generating free-cash-flow yield of approximately 5% and distributing it to shareholders; it has grown organically at about 4% a year.7 One possible negative last year was the acquisition of a specialty skin cream company for which Colgate paid a relatively full multiple. However, Colgate was once again aligning with a science-based product that has strong advocacy from medical professionals (dermatologists in the case of the skin care acquisition), as it had done previously with dentists in its toothpaste business and veterinarians in its pet-food products. Another possible negative is that

An easy-to-understand business with predictability, a moat and a growth engine

New Jersey-based Church & Dwight (CHD) is a leading U.S. consumer product business founded way back in 1846. The company mainly engages in the manufacturing and marketing of cleaning, hygiene and personal care products, such as baking soda, detergents, shampoos, pregnancy tests, toothbrushes and condoms. It sells its products domestically (82% of fiscal 2018 sales) and internationally (18%).

The main reason that we had Church & Dwight join our "Wonderful Business" universe is its predictability. The company has both an enduring competitive advantage and a consistent secular growth engine.

Investors may want to learn from the Lindy Effect and focus on things that rarely change

“The future life expectancy of some non-perishable things like a technology or an idea is proportional to their current age, so that every additional period of survival implies a longer remaining life expectancy. Where the Lindy effect applies, mortality rate decreases with time.”

If you believe in the Lindy Effect (quoted above) as an investor, you may want to bet on long-lived assets such as brands that have survived for more than a century. The businesses operating these assets have proved their capability to endure through different economic cycles, structural shifts, systematic turmoil and continuous competitive threats, including
