Colgate Stock: Time to Buy on the Dip


Colgate-Palmolive is finally on sale. The company's shares have fallen 15% since hitting a high back in May. Is this the dip that sidelined investors have been waiting for?

In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos argues that, while Colgate can still seem expensive compared to consumer goods rivals Procter & Gamble and Clorox , it brings a few qualities to the table that make it worth that premium. For example, the company is boosting its already dominant market-share position in key products, and its heavy exposure to international business is a source of profit growth. Demitrios sees this recent sell-off as a chance for long-term investors to get into a high-quality dividend stock at a reasonable price.
