A leader in consumer goods, Procter & Gamble offers products for household care, beauty and grooming, and health and well-being.
No matter what the economy, people buy shampoo and toothpaste. Plus PG pays dividends.
Steadily increasing to moderate Div payout
Other people think so too.
PG is at nearly the same price as it has been since its last split in 2003. Before its big run of 2003 the share price had also been stagnant for a while right around 70$. Then it ran up to 110$ and a split was announced. I think a similar thing could happen in the next year. If not I think PG has a really good chance of share prices increasing 10% or more plus paying a 3% dividend. This is the anchor of my portfolio. Always has been and always will be (hopefully). I am a 6th generation Cincinnati guy who always roots for the home team. Rec this.
l/t stable but decent
A solid company that makes more products that we buy every day than I care to list. PG is a no-brainer solid stock.
Well balanced company
Even when out of work America's residents will wash their hair and brush their teeth.
P&G seems to have as its objective to move its customers up to its premium products and then to make those products even more premium. I think that P&G has succeeded but that it's reached the top in some of its products and will see slower growth. Example: How can it be any more successful than it has been with its Gillette razors? (I'd pay 4 times as much for a Gillette razor than for any of its dull, rip-off competitors--it's that good!)P&G would need to make a huge number of successful acquisitions of top labels and then successfully upgrade and sell more of them in the market at higher prices. This strategy will not work as well as it did 10 years ago.
My comment is of an egocentric nature, and divorced from my valuation...as a senior person, I developed a nasty dandruff condition on my eyebrows/eyelids, accompanied by a rash (seborrhiasis). It was brought on partly by a dry skin condition,fixed by a 1% hydrocortisone cream: but I needed a "gentle" skin moisturizer to keep it fixed: in terms of my condition the products in order of effectiveness were Olay (PG), Dove (UnlVR) , and Aveeno (JNJ). (I bought the JNJ moisturizer for half the price of the Aveeno: same good result)
Beauty and health care....How can you go wrong. No matter what the market does...this company will always be a winner...better than any gold investment!!!!
Solid dividend and a great company with products that everyone will always need.
solid company , good long term investment
This is one of Cramer's 4 defensive legs to roll through 3Q 09.
A solid performer with a decent dividend and much needed core products. Has at least some safety in an economic contraction as it proved recently. Now leaner and poised to reap the rewards of a recovering economy as some customers return to prouducts they've like for years. Dollar Store goods and discount goods just aren't as comforting as the brands we kow and trust. We'll get back to that when we're able to loosen teh money belt just a notch or two.
