Colgate Palmolive stock (NYSE: CL) is up almost 8% in the past month (21 trading days), outperforming the S&P 500 which was down a marginal 1% over this period. If you look at the change over the last five and ten days, too, the stock has risen 0.9% and 5.9% respectively, outperforming the broader markets on both occasions. Colgate’s most recent FY ’21 earnings saw revenue rise to $17.4 billion, up from $16.5 billion in FY ’20. However, a $571 million goodwill and intangible impairment charge weighed on operating income, dragging it down to $3.33 billion, down from $3.89 billion in FY ’20. Combined with a rise in the effective tax rate, net income dropped from $2.86 billion in FY ’20 to $2.34 billion in FY ’21. Despite this, the stock has rallied over the past weeks over expectations of a demand revival and a favorable foreign currency impact.

Now, is CL stock set to continue its outperformance or could we expect a pullback? We believe that there is a low 27% chance of a rise in CL stock over the next month (21 trading days) based on our machine learning analysis of trends in the stock price over the last ten years.
