Church & Dwight Co., Inc., founded in 1846, is the leading U.S. producer of sodium bicarbonate, popularly known as baking soda, a natural product that cleans, deodorizes, leavens, and buffers. The company’s ARM & HAMMER brand is one of the nation’s most trusted trademarks for a broad range of consumer and specialty products.

Church & Dwight’s long-term mission is to maintain their track record of delivering outstanding TSR relative to that of the S&P 500. Their long-term business model for delivering this sustained earnings growth is based on what they call their “evergreen business model”, reflecting annual organic revenue growth of 3%, gross margin expansion, tight management of overhead costs, and operating margin improvement of roughly 50 basis points to achieve sustained annual earnings growth of 8%, excluding the effect of acquisitions.

The company has fourteen key brands representing approximately 80% of its revenues.

Church & Dwight strives to create an environment where everyone feels free to bring their authentic self to work every day. They win when they respect every employee for who they are – regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, or any other differences. They believe that their employees’ contributions are richer because of their diversity. The company aims to be a diverse, inclusive, and equitable company and are determined to build a culture where people have the power to win together.

Use A Winning Investment Strategy

My portfolio is generating over 12% annual returns since 2009. It's not from the beginning of the year or from 2019, it's from 2009 !!! That's a consistent return which means using the rule of 72, I double my portfolio every 6 years.

My approach is simple but you need key data that I have cultivated with the Dividend Snapshot Screeners. No other investment services provide you with easy to understand data but also actionable data. No hidden magic.

In fact, I have tried all of the investment services for dividend investors like a crash test dummy of investment services. Just ask me, and you'll learn why there was nothing I could use out there and that's how the Dividend Snapshot Screeners were borned!
