    Here's another Hypocrite for you

    From the P&G board, one of the chief polluters of
    this BB, PGPlus (formerly IFF) on his favorite stock,
    P&G which is getting battered today as KO bounces
    back strong:

    <Historically, the
    Aug 2 1998
    6:17PM EDTsold at no more than 14 P/E.
    AT those times Procter & Gamble sold between 16 and
    24. NOW the market is selling at > 27. SO PG's P/E
    is fine between 32 and 48.

    to the general market.>

    Sounds like a
    bit of a double standard to me. Haven't seen him
    express similar sentiments here.

    PGPlus, you
    might want to do a little comparison on KO versus P&G;
    historical growth rates, ROE, cash flow, etc., and then
    (more importantly) take a look at the growth prospects
    for these 2 companies over the next 10 years.
