Spending Trends Make Some Retail Sectors Skittish

August 12, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Retail sales in the U.S. were sluggish in July, especially among clothing and electronic goods vendors, where shopping is shifting from brick-and-mortar stores to the Internet. It’s not because American consumers aren’t spending. After all, unemployment is down, income is up, and energy prices remain low. U.S. households have increased spending every quarter since the end of 2009. But there has been a shift in where Americans spend, toward entertainment, travel and healthcare -- and online. The experts don’t seem alarmed. One economist said the news signals “a pause in a good pace of spending”, while a global forecaster expects a 2.6 percent gain in gross domestic product this quarter over a year earlier. Still some sectors have reason to be nervous: consumer spending is falling at sporting goods stores, food and beverage stores, restaurants and bars.

Walgreens, Unilever Partner In Program To Provide Clean Water To African Communities

August 3, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Walgreens and Unilever have come up with a way to boost sales while benefiting African communities that need clean water. Between July 31 and August 27, each purchase of specific Unilever products (i.e., TRESemmé, Suave, Caress and Axe) at a Walgreens store provides five gallons of clean water to a family in a developing Kenyan community. A purchase of two or more Unilever products at Walgreens will help provide 15 gallons of clean water. The donations through the program Give H2OPE to Others are handled by the social enterprise ME to WE. In 2015, Walgreens and Unilever helped donate more than 17.5 million gallons of clean water to the Kenyan village of Kipsongol – 31,000 gallons a day provided by the digging of a borehole.

Foreign Exchange, Other Factors, Impact P&G’s Sales Performance

August 2, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble’s fourth quarter – April to June – financials show a significant drop (three percent) in net sales to $16.1 billion, mainly reflecting the impact of currency fluctuations, Venezuela deconsolidation and “minor brand divestitures.”  Organic sales, however, were up two percent, thanks to a concomitant increase in organic shipment volume. The company said diluted net earnings per share were $0.69, an increase of 283 percent over the prior year. Core EPS were $0.79, a decrease of 15 percent due mainly to higher marketing spending, lower gains from minor brand divestitures, and a higher core effective tax rate. Cash flow remained strong, with fiscal year adjusted free cash flow productivity of 115 percent. Top sector sales performers were grooming (up seven percent) and healthcare (up eight percent).

Diminishing Shelf Space Drives CPG Companies To Try Online Innovation

July 29, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Manufacturers of food, drink, beauty, and personal care products are losing store shelf space thanks to the rise of own-brand discount supermarket chains like Aldi and Lidl, and smaller stores that sell independent brands. To meet the challenge, manufacturers – Reckitt Benckiser, Nestlé, Diageo, Unilever, etc. – are increasingly focusing on e-commerce, selling through e-tail websites. But they are also experimenting with delivery-on-demand and subscription-based models. It’s a rising trend: online shoppers globally spent $87 billion on CPG items last year, nine percent of the total online spend. Twenty-five percent of people in 60 countries in 2015 ordered grocery products online for home delivery. Fifty-five percent said they would do so in the future.

Louis Vuitton, LVMH's high-end luggage and luxury clothing brand, will start selling perfumes in September 2016.
