Procter & Gamble (PG) earnings preview: Higher revenue and profits expected in Q2

The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE: PG) is scheduled to report second quarter 2020 earnings results on Thursday, January 23, before the market opens. Analysts have projected earnings to improve to $1.37 per share from the year-ago number of $1.25 per share. Revenue is estimated to grow 5% year-over-year to $18.3 billion.

P&G is likely to see strong organic sales on the strength of its product portfolio along with favorable volumes and price/mix factors. Last quarter, organic sales grew 7%. The company’s innovation and marketing efforts are also expected to drive growth.
