    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    holding up off the low, but I am afraid this is dead money until next earnings now.

    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.

    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.

    Fundamentals and valuation look rock solid. I'm assuming the steep drop is driven by inflation concerns, expected rising yield, and unfavorable year-over-year comps on the TP business. But all that seems baked in at this P/E ratio and dividend yield.

    Looking at buying 100 shares and selling $130 covered call against them to get $6 premium per share. Is anyone doing a similar CC strategy?
