Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

U.S. household formation growth will drive demand for gardening products. As the market leader in consumer gardening products, Scotts will benefit from the secular housing trend.

Bears

While the recreational gardening industry is growing, consumers will increasingly prefer cheaper private label and generic products, reducing Scotts' market share over time.
