    I'm long on KMB. The current price to book ratio for Kimberly-Clark as of August 13, 2021 is 60.64. I read that a good PB Ratio is under 1 which indicates a Value Stock ... I always thought of KMB as a Value Stock but the very high PB is confusing. Can anyone help me understand?

    Trying to figure out a realistic price target for KMB in the next year. Any opinions people?

    Thinking the play on this is a PMCC with the Jan 2023 $120 calls and selling $138 CC's each week...will make killing and only costs about $19.50 in premium so making about 2% a week for the foreseeable future...not too shabby if you ask me. Thoughts?

    It's tough comparing sales to same quarter last year during the paper craze - of course sales volume is down in comparison to that period. Also, high input costs are eroding margins, but this should level as commodity prices normalize for pulp/wood/etc. - I'm a little jittery, but this company still has strong brands behind it - I'll hold for now

    KMB stock is being priced rationally:

    1. The stock has done nothing for a long time (in line with very mild expectations)
    2. The comparison to earnings during the heart of the pandemic is artificial and easily dismissed - we saw the same thing with stocks like Campbell's Soup
    3. Wood pulp prices normalize over time (and perhaps not coincidentally lumber topped out in May)
    4. All companies in this sector will be able to pass along some price increases
    5. This company continues to take steps to improve its efficiency (look up the FORCE program), even incorporating digital supply chain management tools

    All that being said, from a trading standpoint the strategy of "buy KMB at 130, sell at 140" still looks like it will make you money in the near future.

    Was hoping it would stay under 130…. Maybe it will fall back but wasn’t expecting this bounce back…

    not looking good. Paid more in div than they generated from operations
  • G
    Missed sales and income estimates, and lowered guidance. Stock down over a five year period when the market is hitting record highs. Management is making excuses.

    Steve you are right the CEO has to go

    Do they hand out free Depends for the Board of Directors meetings ? This stock has done almost nothing in 5 years, during one of the greatest bull markets in US history.

    holding up off the low, but I am afraid this is dead money until next earnings now.
  • S
    Sold most of my KMB

    Well, I spent $55 on Amazon and purchased 50 USA-made Kimberly-Clark N95s. They are duck-billed shape so I used non-toxic paint to add nostrils and a splash of yellow flair.) They are both durable and comfortable. I'm happily very long KMB!

    no wonder sales are down as people are using up their stockpiles of toilet paper, etc. which they accrued during the beginning of the pandemic.

    We all know what the future brings on this stock. Wait fot the earnings and buy in the low 20s
  • E
    I said 5 years ago the CEO needs to be replaced

    Finally a good day :)
