Procter & Gamble: maintains full-year forecasts, shares up

(CercleFinance.com) - Procter & Gamble maintained its full-year forecasts after a "strong" quarter, as it benefited from higher consumer demand in North America and Europe due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


The US giant - which makes the Bounty paper towels and the Charmin toilet paper - said it made net sales of 17.2 billion dollars in its fiscal third quarter, up 5% year-on-year.

Diluted net earnings per share were 1.12 dollar, an eight percent increase versus the prior year, and core earnings per share increased 10% to 1.17 dollar, the consumer goods manufacturer said.

Analysts, on average, expected EPS of 1.13 dollar.

For the full-year, the Cincinnati-based company maintained its guidance for organic sales growth of four to five percent, also keeping its guidance for core EPS growth in a range of eight to eleven percent.

The results were welcomed by investors, with the shares up 0.9% in early morning trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
