|I sold my P&G long ago when I received it by way of takeover compensation for Noxell corp & later Gillette. The only good case I can make for buying P&G right now is, if your taking a long term horizon. It"s certainly a safe stock to hold if you need safety in your diversified portfolio. It's certainly a leader in innovative consumer products. Right now with Lafley back in charge. I think he will get the company back on the growth track again. This after jettisoning the lower margin and non core brands that aren't part of P&G "s newer strategy.|
Aside from all that. If you've ever used a Gillette razor or blades. There's a good chance in 28 years as a packaging pressman. I might have printed the package you took it out of. :+ )
I've thought more than once at nibbling at consumer products company Scott's Liquid Gold Inc. (SLGD)' I believe currently a good value. The only thing is it's insider controlled, and non liquid, but I like the skin care line.
