On CAPS, 97% of the 7,650 members who have rated Procter & Gamble believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, rmhjah, tapped Procter & Gamble as a particularly solid opportunity:

Although not a sexy company and definitely not a company that will make you rich overnight, they are a solid company with quality management. I have no idea if the iPhone 21S will be a huge hit 35 years down the road from now but I'm pretty sure people will still use soap to clean their bodies and laundry. There's a pretty good chance that men will still shave 35 years down the road and people will still have children that use diapers. I'm not looking to beat the S&P every year or have wonderful hidden stock advice at neighborhood BBQ's. I'm looking to put my children through college and retire comfortably while collecting a nice inflationary beating dividend.
