Procter & Gamble reports third quarter 2019 earnings

Organic sales rose 5%, driven by a 2% increase in organic shipment volume. Sales grew across all its segments, with the exception of grooming and baby care.

For fiscal-year 2019, P&G has guided for total sales to be flat to up 1% versus 2018. Organic sales is expected to grow 4%. GAAP EPS is expected to increase 17-24% versus last year while core EPS is expected to grow 3-8%.
