Stock Analysis of Procter & Gamble (PG)

The Procter & Gamble Company (PG), together with its subsidiaries, manufactures and sells branded consumer packaged goods. The company operates through five segments: Beauty, Grooming, Health Care, Fabric Care and Home Care, and Baby Care and Family Care. This dividend king has paid dividends since 1944 and has managed to increase them for 58 years in a row.

The company’s latest dividend increase was announced in April 2014 when the Board of Directors approved a 7% increase in the quarterly dividend to 64.36 cents /share. The company’s peer group includes Colgate-Palmolive (CL), Kimberly-Clark (KMB) and Clorox (CLX)

Over the past decade this dividend growth stock has delivered an annualized total return of 6.60% to its shareholders.

Currently, the stock is attractively valued at 17.70 times earnings and yields 3.20%. Procter & Gamble is already one of my ten largest holdings, which is why further additions there would be less likely for me. I do like the company, and believe it to be one of the few great corporations to hold forever.
