With that in mind, let's take a closer look at Procter & Gamble and see what CAPS investors are saying about the stock right now.
On CAPS, 97% of the 7,664 members who have rated Procter & Gamble believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
Just yesterday, one of those Fools, InvestorDeb, succinctly summed up the Procter & Gamble bull case for our community:
The company is ahead of plan on its restructuring program (its goal is to see $10 billion in savings by 2016). Industry consolidation will result in fewer competitors, and that should lead to a more favorable price/mix. Lower commodity costs and a weaker dollar should help increase margins. Worth 1/3 of a position here, with more money being added if we get a strong sell-off in February/March on debt ceiling woes.
If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Procter & Gamble may not be your top choice.
