Wonder WHY 'Ma Procter's' stock isn't performing well? Well just look at the deflation of the U.S. dollar in conjunction with limited growth of the company!
Stock will eventually start to climb after it hits $58 dollars per share (based on what I know on the inside). We'll pump money into software, systems, and maybe another company or two to keep the price of the stock on the market down.
A.G. Lafley? Well, he's a part-time employee of Procter & Gamble, serving on the boards of Dell Computer Corporation (we use their computers in the company...wonder why), and General Electric. He's so shady, that his wife can't even stand him anymore. He's Procter's "pretty-boy" that was designed to take the helm of the suffering corporation, and cover Dirk Yeager's "colorful accounting" practices, serving as a 'talking-head' and getting the company back on track.
What to do? If you've got stock in P&G, keep it. If you don't have stock, DON'T INVEST! It'll take P&G a couple years to recover from all the bad investments that they've made. What bad investments? P&G was first offered the technology to make "HUGGIES" and turned it down in favor of coming up with their failed "Pull-Ups" brand. They were offered the technology to take advantage of the "PocketPaks" for their Scope brand that is now marked by LISTERINE - a total SNAFU.
Procter dilutes their stock prices by offering stock options for their senior board members...something that NEEDS TO STOP.
So, OK, where is Procter going? Down the tubes if they don't change their direction!!!!!!!!!
