Colgate-Palmolive made headlines last month when several counterfeit tubes of toothpaste were found to contain diethylene glycol, a sweet-tasting, but potentially dangerous chemical.

Despite the bad PR, Morgan Stanley upgraded Colgate to Overweight, citing cost savings, strong operating fundamentals and the weak dollar as providing a potential upside to earnings estimates.

Meanwhile, Zacks senior consumer goods analyst Steven Ralston, CFA reiterated his Hold rating for shares of Colgate-Palmolive. He noted that Colgate has had a stellar long-term growth record, as well as a history of tight financial controls and new product innovations.
