Thanks to consumer brand loyalty, product innovation, and the nature of its products (necessary, consumable, and a small part of a consumer’s overall disposable income), Clorox has pricing power. Since 2005, the firm has made 66 price increases… More

Great company however not a lot of growth there. It is a rock solid dividend stock, but only grows revenues about 3% a year.

The Clorox Company has a 40-year ongoing streak of annual payout increases, and owns a powerhouse selection of consumer-essentials brands that are likely to be sales leaders for decades to come. In addition to its namesake bleach and cleaning products, the company makes a diverse line of goods that includes Glad bags, Liquid Plumr clog removers, and Brita water filters. These brands ALONE will sadly benefit from the devastation that is on the rise as we see bigger and more powerful storms becoming more commonplace in the world. More than 80% of its sales come from brands that occupy either the first or second market-share positions in their respective categories, and distribution advantages add to a moat that puts Clorox in good shape to fend off competitors and continue growing its dividend.

The stock has a solid 2.6% dividend yield, and its current 61% payout ratio shouldn't be an obstacle to delivering solid payout increases in light of Clorox's steadily growing business. The company is cautiously optimistic that it will be able to continue expanding sales at an annual rate between 3% and 5% through 2020. With the pricing strength afforded by its stable of trusted brands, that's a target that the company is primed to make good on. Cost-cutting measures and share repurchases should also ensure that its profits grow at an even faster rate, clearing the way for long-term payout growth.

Clorox might not look cheap trading at 23 times forward earnings estimates, but investors are getting a well-managed company that's likely to retain leadership in dependable product categories and deliver uninterrupted yearly dividend growth.
