Church & Dwight: Caution Is Warranted At These Levels

Church & Dwight (CHD) might be small compared to other consumer staples, but that doesn't mean the company shouldn't be considered by investors.  The business has been around since 1846 starting with just the baking soda business that eventually transformed into the Arm & Hammer Brand that is now known so well.  Church & Dwight now has bands such as Orajel, OxiClean, Nair, Water Pik, Trojan and others under their control.

My wife recently purchased a Water Pik water flosser and I'd venture to guess that we have at least 5 other products from Church & Dwight in our house.  The consumable nature of its products as well as its commitment to quality keeps consumers coming back to continue purchase its products.

    For the sake of those reading your article I sincerely hope CHD's share price drops significantly following shortseller Ben Axler's Sept 5, 2019 90-page Sell recommendation. I agree CHD is currently trading at a lofty valuation. I, however, think his thought that CHD's share price will drop 35% - 50% is a bit of a stretch. If CHD were to pull back below the mid 60s I would back up the truck.

    Long CHD since early 2005 and it is one of my largest helps when I get out of the way and don't try to be cute when it comes to investing. Cheers.
