Evercore ISI sees upside potential
Procter & Gamble will announce second-quarter earnings results on Wednesday, and according to research company Evercore ISI, Procter & Gamble is one of the best opportunities for investors for the 2022 year.
Robert Ottenstein, an analyst from Evercore ISI said that PG’s valuation is not reflecting improved fundamentals as consumer behavior trends have elevated demand for 40% to 50% of the firm’s products.
Procter & Gamble is better positioned for a recession than many investors fear, and Evercore ISI sees upside potential for the upcoming quarters. Robert Ottenstein added:
We believe P&G is well-positioned to gain share on and off-line thanks to its best-in-class supply chain, iconic products, and ability to lean-into commercial opportunities. Critically, the firm’s move to de-matrix the organization has allowed it to operate with greater agility and accountability.
