It remains wise to buy Reckitt Benckiser's product and, despite a fall today, its shares

I guess I have been a professional analyst and investor for the last twenty-six years, but obviously as a buy side and not a sell side operator. As I may have said before, I learnt early on that the more I could ignore brokers and do my own research, the better I would do. And that still remains my thought today as I still think, a bit like the academic world, the biggest risk is that you end up knowing more and more about less and less. And that brings us to today’s Q3 update from Reckitt Benckiser (RKT).


Why has there been a CEO change at Reckitt Benckiser?

Perhaps you are really smart with your investment choices and do your trades from the beach or a luxury yacht. By contrast, I am mostly sat in my study working and thinking. Still, it is less than ten years to go before I can access my pension fund and one stock choice that has helped out over the last week is Reckitt Benckiser (RKT), which I last loved-up a bit over six months ago HERE. So why has a CEO change been announced today?


Health and Hygiene Colossus Coins More Profit and could See a Tasty Share Hike

Hello Share Players. Despite the Footsie’s lack of progress, quite a few members are posting encouraging numbers. They include Reckitt Benckiser (RKT). In the first half of this year, its like-for-like sales improved by 8.6%. Revenue was up by 2.2% and, more importantly, underlying operating profit increased by a fifth to £1.8 billion.


This Big Brand Giant should Sparkle Even though Spending is Tight

Hello Share Twiddlers. Reckitt Benckiser (RKT) makes very well-known hygiene products. And during and after Covid there’s more demand for this kind of thing. Among its well-known brands are Lysol and Dettol. The names conjure up in the mind heavy duty attacks on germs. During the hard times we’re encountering at the moment, folks are often tempted to buy cheaper supermarket own makes but such is the strength of Reckitt’s brands this issue doesn't seem to apply to it.


Reckitt remains a core FTSE-100 share position for me

Last October I observed that Reckitt Benckiser (RKT) ‘without working hard offers the scope for a £60-70 share price plus picking up a dividend’. In short a holding in the ‘home to the world's best loved and trusted hygiene, health and nutrition brands’ group theoretically for FY22 is probably over ten times more interesting than government bonds or money in the bank. How many times a month do you - or someone in your household - use Finish, Dettol, Air Wick, Nurofen, Vanish, Harpic, Calgon or Durex products? My guess is more than once. So what about the shares today post the group's full year numbers publication?
