Why Colgate Will Continue to Run in 2013

Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE: CL  ) has achieved an impressive return in 2012, and there's good reason to believe the company will continue running in 2013. While the consumer-goods space rarely puts up outsized gains in one year or the next, the deliberate returns from a company like Colgate slowly build year after year and can handsomely reward patient shareholders. 

With sector-leading gross margins, outsized exposure to high-growth emerging markets, a strong dividend, and an unbeatable brand, Colgate should put up another strong year of gains in 2013. See more in the following video with Foolish analyst Austin Smith.
