Procter & Gamble: Long Term View



May 07, 2010 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: PG

It is volatile days like yesterday which make me happy that I am a long term dividend investor, not subject to the whims of program traders and trading errors. Relying on the consistent and growing dividends of quality dividend stocks is a sound way to make money in any market, without losing your mind.

Below you could find snapshots of the time and sales of Procter & Gamble (PG) stock from the lows today.

And here is the stock chart from yesterterday:

Compare this chart to the chart of annual dividends. The annual dividend per share has increased by an average of 11% annually, which is below the growth in earnings. An 11% growth in dividends translates into the payment doubling every almost every six and a half years. Procter & Gamble has managed to double its distributions every seven years on average since 1973.

I think that Procter & Gamble is attractively valued with its low price/earnings multiple of 15, a not too high DPR. The current dividend yield is 3.10%. I would be a buyer of Procter & Gamble (PG) and other quality dividend stocks on dips.

Dividends are a superior investment strategy to invest in the market for the long-term. Buy and hold is not dead, and nor is dividend investing in solid companies!

Low P/E? 15? Low would be 7 in my book. Maybe 10 because it's such a juggernaught. In general the market seems way out of line. Whoever bought near 40-45 got in at what I might call an attractive buy & hold price.
