take a look at PG today. it got creamed. if you are looking for a great company at a major discount, maybe this would be your bag. i bought it only because 1)i finally realized that everyting else i own is tech, and this could be a major opportunity to balance my portfolio's risk 2) the last time i bought a stock that got creamed this severely in one day, i ended up with a 100% return, after a year, and that was on a small cap called CELL. i figured investors in MTW who read this board are fairly conservatively biased, and this drop in PG just seemed like a worthy mention, in case you were looking for a conservative investment in a stock that has traditionally been and will likely again be a consistent grower.
I don't have any news on the annual meeting but looks like they bought another small company for the foodservice division. by itself it is not earth shattering but when you add up all the aquisitions of the past year it looks very promising for the bottom line down the road. The stock is also starting to take its annual spring rise. So far so good- just like the man said when he jumped off the Sears tower. Seriously the future is getting brighter with these aquisitions not dimmer.
Here's a couple of things to think about. One of my stock brokers (Merrill-Lynch) told me last week that P&G has been watching ABT and Merrill-Lynch feels that there may be something in the works.
Another broker of mine told me to check out these 2 stocks. "ATML" & "VOD" A friend of mine who uses this same broker said that same broker has him in the following stocks: ADTM, ACTC, SYMC & EMC. This friend said that if he would sell AMTL and these stocks today, he would be ahead $ 35,000. He bought these stocks 3 weeks ago
I'm buyimg 100 shares of ATML today. I hope this broker knows his stuff.
