Barclays: Winners & Losers in the Consumer Products Sector

by Burke Speaker | September 18, 2013 1:11 pm

The winners and losers in the consumer products sector are a mixed bag each day, but these companies are seeing movement — good and bad.

Barclays has pointed to three companies that either gained or lost momentum.

Barclays reduced the rating of consumer products giant Procter & Gamble (PG[1]) to “equal weight,” from “overweight.” It noted that shares are likely to stay range bound until the time that PG can increase its growth signficantly.

Additionally, Barclays upgraded Colgate-Palmolive (CL[2]) to “overweight” while cutting Clorox (CLX[3]) to “underweight.”

You may remember back in May[4] that InvestorPlace pointed to PG as a dividend stock to hold tight for the long haul.
