P&G currently has an annualized dividend of $2.25, yielding 3.2%. I have
recommended P&G before
, and can you blame me? The price-to-earnings multiple is under 20 for both the trailing 12 months and the forward estimates. P&G closed at $66.68 and paid out 56.2 cents in dividends since the closing price of the last article. I don't think this company is finished rewarding investors yet.
The shares are modestly higher from a month ago, but are only about a dollar from the 52 week high. The stock appreciated 14% in the last year, and the average analyst target price is $74.85.
Short sellers are next to impossible to find. Short interest is so low I only include it to demonstrate the smart money is not betting against this company. Based on the last reported numbers 0.8% of the float is short.
