The analysts wrote, “We maintain our Market Perform rating. CLX Is Among The Best Positioned In Our Broader Staples Coverage Universe To Benefit From U.S. Tax Reform – Our detailed analysis of the pot’l reforms across broader Staples indicates that this could generate ~+20% EPS accretion for CLX if lowered from 35% to ~20%. We estimate that up to ~55% of this potential upside from pot’l corporate tax reform is currently priced into shares, implying further upside potential for CLX shares (possibly to ~$155-160/shr) if reforms are implemented. (For details on our quantification, please see p. 4). Continued Confidence in CLX’s FY18 Growth Outlook – Management reiterated its 1-3% FY18 sales growth guidance (we continue to estimate +2.3%). Sales growth is still likely to sequentially moderate in F2Q vs. FQ1 due to: (1) Tougher y/y comparisons; (2) A reversal of hurricane-related sales pull-forward; and (3) A slowdown in the Wipes business as CLX takes pricing.””
