Church & Dwight Co., Inc. Research Report
Analysts' bull outlook towards Church & Dwight seems to be consistent. The parent company of brands, such as Arm & Hammer, Oxiclean and Trojan has been showing upward trends in revenue growth and dividend that is said to be annually increasing by 40 percent. Although the company's debt level increased in 2012, Church & Dwight's recent acquisition of Avid Health Inc. may significantly help the company expand its market and boost its revenue. According to Zacks Equity Research, Church & Dwight's new asset may help the company gain a market share in one of the fastest growing segments of the vitamin/mineral/supplement (VMS) business. Avid Health is the market leader in VMS gummies, and its sales are reported to have tripled over the last three years.

As an industry leader, the bull stance towards Clorox is well-deserved as the company has been posting average yearly returns of 12.5% since 1968. For a stock that has risen by 89% in the last decade, there may be more to the centennial celebration of Clorox this year.
