Clorox Cleans Up and 3 Stocks Hitting 52-week Highs

The Clorox Company (NYSE:CLX): Closing price $83.13

Procter & Gamble might well be more popular in the household products space, but Clorox is seen by some analysts as the superior investment, as the firm should see greater growth this year, is less expensive compared to sales, pays a better dividend, has returned more capital to shareholders, has a lower beta, and higher institutional ownership, according to the Motley Fool Blog Network member Brian Nichols. Shares closed up 0.92 percent Friday at $83.13 and have been traded between $66.72 and 83.15 the past 52 weeks.
