Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE: CL  ) is finally on sale. The company's shares have fallen 15% since hitting a high back in May. Is this the dip that sidelined investors have been waiting for?

In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos argues that, while Colgate can still seem expensive compared to consumer goods rivals Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG  ) and Clorox (NYSE: CLX  ) , it brings a few qualities to the table that make it worth that premium. For example, the company is boosting its already dominant market-share position in key products, and its heavy exposure to international business is a source of profit growth. Demitrios sees this recent sell-off as a chance for long-term investors to get into a high-quality dividend stock at a reasonable price.

    Clorox (CLX) is a bad investment. The management has made changes to its existing products such as Clorox bleach. It may make sense with its marketing and management perspective, but it's completely flawed. They make more concentrated and double price. Example the 96 oz bleach now is only 64 oz because it's concentrated and its price is double. Consumers do not care about concentrated or not... they go by the size and price!
