Just yesterday, one of those Fools, RyanG34, tapped management's recent restructuring efforts as a solid catalyst for outsized gains:
[Procter & Gamble] is cutting thousands of jobs and has ditched non-related companies in order to strengthen its core competencies. These efforts will pay off. Not to mention while you wait for these efforts to pay off you get a nice 3.7% dividend.
