Colgate Offering Possible 10.86% Return Over the Next 23 Calendar Days

Colgate's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Colgate is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $62.50 short call and a strike $67.50 long call offers a potential 10.86% return on risk over the next 23 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $62.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.49 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.51 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $67.50 long call strike price.

The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Colgate is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.

The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Colgate is bearish.

The RSI indicator is at 20.44 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

Colgate's profit beats estimates due to cost cuts
Thu, 30 Jan 2014 18:29:32 GMT
Reuters – Colgate-Palmolive Co, the world's largest toothpaste maker, reported a better-than-expected quarterly profit as cost cuts offset the negative impact of a stronger dollar. Colgate's gross margins rose in the fourth quarter as it cut costs by negotiating better lease terms with suppliers, using cheaper raw material and reducing packaging material in products. Colgate, which controls about 45 percent of the global toothpaste market, said it expected its 2014 adjusted earnings to be in line with analysts' estimates. Colgate Chief Executive Ian Cook said he expected the company's organic sales, which strip out the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and foreign exchange, to grow 5-7 percent in 2014.
