13:37 EDTOMCEarnings Watch: Stifel bullish on Procter & Gamble ahead of Q2 earnings report
Procter & Gamble (PG), a consumer packaged goods company, is scheduled to report second quarter earnings before the market open on Tuesday, January 26, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 a.m. ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 98c on revenue of $16.94B. The consensus range for EPS is 93c-$1.05 on revenue of $16.44B-$17.4B, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Procter & Gamble reported first quarter core EPS of 98c on revenue of $16.53B, compared to analyst estimates of 95c and $17.17B, respectively. The company said that organic sales decreased 1% and that operating cash flow for the quarter was $3.5B. On its Q1 earnings conference call, the company said it expects top line growth to resume in Q2, with further strengthening in the back half of the quarter. Procter & Gamble also said that it had a "good start" to Q2, with October-to-date organic sales growth at the time of 3%. NEWS: On November 18, Procter & Gamble repeated its fiscal 2016 guidance in slides that were presented at the Morgan Stanley Global consumer and Retail Conference. The company backed its FY16 core EPS growth view of down slightly to up mid single digits. At the same conference, the company said it was "not averse" to looking at any option that creates value for stakeholders. On December 7, the Wall Street Journal reported that P&G was moving the lion's share of its media-buying and planning account in North America to Omnicom (OMC) Media Group. A week and a half later, Procter & Gamble, through its subsidiary Gillette, filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Dollar Shave Club alleging that the discount shaving products company violated Gillette's intellectual property by selling infringing razors. On December 29, the Wall Street Journal reported that the consumer packaged goods company was discontinuing a sixth of its Olay products, reducing the Olay product line to roughly 120 products.

STREET RESEARCH: On January 19, Stifel upgraded Procter & Gamble to Buy from Hold with an $85 price target on shares, saying that it expects the company's sales and operating profit to accelerate as a result of market share gains and cost savings. Stifel added that it expects the company's multiple to rise as well. PRICE ACTION: Procter & Gamble shares are fractionally higher over the last three months. In afternoon trading ahead of Tuesday's earnings report, shares are down roughly 0.3% to $77.14.
