Unilever stock (NYSE: UL) was up around 1% in the past two weeks (ten trading days), in a time when the S&P dropped nearly 10%. If you look at the change over the last five days and one month, too, the stock has dropped but has managed to outperform the broader markets. Unilever’s recent Q1 ’22 trading statement, saw operating sales rising from $12.9 billion in Q1 ’21 to $14.4 billion in Q1 ’22. The sales growth of 7.3% was driven by a price rise of 8.3% against a drop in volume of 1%. The home care segment was the fastest growing, adding 9.2% in sales growth over this period, bringing in a strong quarterly performance for Unilever.

Now, is UL stock set to continue its strong performance or could we expect a pullback? We believe that there is a strong 61% chance of a rise in UL 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.
