CEO Polk has charted a clear path fwd (w/strong track record of delivery) and NWL’s depressed multiple (12x ’19 P/E vs. 19x staples) creates an asymmetrical risk-reward. Remains a top pick – $65 PT. Mixed 2Q qtr impacted by tough retail env’t: The market was looking for 3% core sales growth in 2Q, so NWL’s +2.5% was a bit light, though would have been > 3% ex- retailer destocking in fishing/fresh preserving and a customer bankruptcy. Encouragingly, NWL’s growth was broad-based across its geos, the co. is gaining share (~60 bps YoY in the US), and results are poised to inflect in 2H (+3.5% vs. +2.5% in 2H) even ahead of any yield on the big investments on consumer insights (mid-2018).””
