LONDON, February 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Personal products companies have inelastic demand and thus are better equipped
to weather the economic storms. However, these companies have their own set of
issues. Kimberly-Clark Corp. (NYSE: KMB) is currently looking to correct its
previous mistakes as it decides to stop operating in some of the European
markets. Instead, it is planning to mobilize its resources towards more
profitable markets. Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) is reducing its reliance on
developed markets and is expanding itself in the emerging economies. StockCall

Kimberly Clark Pulls Out of European Market

Kimberly-Clark Corporation is on the roll and the stock hits a 52-week high.
It recently reported 3 percent increase for its Q4 revenue, while its EPS
jumped from $1.28 to $1.37 in the quarter. However, it provided rather bleak
outlook for 2013. Due to the company pulling out of European markets, its
revenue is likely to tumble down. Unfavorable exchange rate is also expected
to take its toll on the top-line of the company. Sign up today for the free

Kimberly-Clark took a major strategic decision when it decided to withdraw
from European markets. The near-term impact of the move is going to be
negative as the company faces lower revenue. However, in the long-run, the
move is expected to make sense as the company had failed to make any positive
impact in the market, despite its repeated attempts. Under its new plan, the
company exits lower margin businesses, especially in Western and Central
Europe.

Despite restructuring its business, Kimberly-Clark is expected to grow its
revenue at 9 percent per annum and its stock price is likely to show the
positive impact. The stock is also attractive for income investors as it
offers about 3.31 percent dividend yield.  

Procter & Gamble Banks on Emerging Markets

Procter & Gamble Co. started the year with a new joint venture with Teva. The
companies collaborated to set up a $90 million production plant in India. The
plant is likely to be completed in two years. However, the company is not just
expanding but also cutting corners on other fronts. Procter & Gamble spent
$918 million in last one year on employee separation package, as a part of its
restructuring efforts. The company is looking to complete its restructuring
plans ahead of the schedule. It aims to cut about 5,500 jobs in the next three
years. Procter & Gamble free technical report is accessible upon sign up at

Procter & Gamble is looking towards emerging markets to sustain its growth.
The company reported healthy numbers for its fiscal quarter of the year. It
not only increased its revenue but also improved its margins. Thanks to the
positive trend, the company also raised its forecast for the full year. The
stock has gained 10 percent on year-to-date basis. Coupled with dividend yield
of 2.99 percent, the stock is a good investment. The company also provides
value to its investors through buybacks, which are likely to be in the range
of $5 billion to $6 billion. The company earlier planned to buyback to the
tune of $4 billion to $6 billion.
