Slow steady growth in a time of down markets.
Global diversification + consumer staples + branding expertise = long-term income that won't quit.
The Greece and Euro woes only drove the Dow down about 200 pts. It was a mass sell-off (possibly computer glitch) of Proctor & Gamble that hit the Dow so hard all of a sudden. PG went from $60/share at 2:45pm down to $39 two minutes later and then back up to 58 another 2 minutes after that! It literally dropped 35% in 2 minutes and then gained 74% in the same amount of time. But those 4 minutes of high volatility showed up in the Dow 30 and caused a Domino effect of other selling (like Dow Index funds) causing everyone else to take a hit.This makes PG WAY too unstable to keep shareholders in the short-term.
dawn diswashing detergent will be used to clean the birds in La.... gonna be a run on it!
Nearly everyone who's looking at PG is calling it an outperform stock so it may seem like crowd following for me to join them. I believe it's currently (early May 2010) lagging the S&P because of crowd following in the other direction and that management's rather boring stick-to-the-knitting activity will bring that crowd back around.
Passes Dogs of the Dow screen.
Staples. Dividend. What else do you need when this market rests / retracts?

Such strong headwinds with currency, taxation, globalization, population increase and otherwise have a beta of 0.5. They have almost zero legislative risk, competition, or business risk. Besides being one of the easiest companies to run and maintain, they will out pace the S&P by the sheer fact that industries shift over time, but everyone needs their ever increasing product line. Hold period time frame: 5-10 generations.
