@Pts117 Great company...but only so much they can do in the short term to fight inflationary policies of the U.S. govt. I already own it...looking at maybe SMG, SWKS, XYL or ECL. Most still expensive.

don't disagree - CLX is a safe play in this market, especially at $140-145, which is ~12% below pre-pandemic levels. That makes no sense. CLX stands to permanently benefit from long term pandemic trends and behavior patterns - think about being under 15 years old during this pandemic... these kids are going to be terrified of germs for life

one more thing... I really liked SMG until I enrolled in their annual direct to customer lawn care - they botched everything over and over. Still keeping an eye on it, but not as enthusiastic about the shares at the moment. Possibly will buy some if we see a broad pull back but the company does not appear to be very well run.
At the low 140s, and with Covid seemingly nearing its end, Clorox just completed the Covid roundtrip.

@keithrez If I didnt own it at $57, I would buy it sometime this year. I am on the look out for a dividend stock.

@keithrez That round trip was created by analysts...and make no mistake ... they do it for every traded stock out there.
@keithrez everyone stocked up on bleach for a few years. i am still looking for more pain in the price and will buy around 100$
Inflation kicking in...

PG is taking market share from competition, here with cleaning stuff at CLX. PG improved when Nelson Peltz took an activist role, bought stock and got on the BOD. He just started with UL. He should do it with CLX, likely to get rid of non performing brands and focus on top brands.

CLX is on my watchlist and I’d like to own it, but only at 3%+ dividend yield would I start a position.
@josephaoppenheim It's on my watch list too and have been following it closely for about a year now. I think the time to buy is coming. Ready to pounce on shares below $145

I thought Clorox is one of the so-called "value stock" the experts have been telling retail investors to buy, yet they still pour money into technology stocks...

@TigerCub911 I think it was more commonly pegged as a defensive, economically insensitive holding rather than a value, at least at these prices.
@TigerCub911 not much value when selling at 30 p:e

@Thrombus That was because at the height of the pandemic everyone was rushing to buy Clorox. Now that the pandemic is over the party is over. I still have over 15 gallons of clorox left, not including other cleaning products, not sure what to do with them, hopefully they won't expire. Just saying
