For any investor to make an educated investment decision about their holdings, they need to understand both the bear and bull side of each stock. This investing rigor applies to even the largest and most stable blue chips, so we moved through each stock on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEX: ^DJI ) and provided a bear and bull case for each stock.
Up today are three reasons to consider buying Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG ) . After a short period of stale returns that have investors clamoring, Procter & Gamble may have got the shot in the arm it needed to continue outperforming again. With activist investor Bill Ackman stirring the pot, some changes could be on the horizon. Not only that, but Procter & Gamble's weakness in emerging markets has actually caused it to retreat a bit to its more profitable core domestic market, which is a better allocation of resources and the company's premium brands at this time. After everything, this company continues to be one of the most consistent market beaters out there, with a multidecade price chart to make any investor's heart flutter, and an incredible dividend to boot.
