On CAPS, 1,783 of the 1,801 members who have rated P&G -- 99% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star pigwings6 and All-Star TSIF, who is ranked in the top 10% of our community.

Three weeks ago, pigwings6 prompted Fools to see the P&G bull case for themselves: 

Do me a favor. Go into your bathroom, and take a look on your counter, in your shower, and in your medicine cabinet. Now while you're doing that, count how many of those items are P&G. Enough said.

In an earlier pitch, TSIF taps P&G as the perfect play for defensive-minded Fools:

Another strong player that usually tracks the S&P with "nothing special' in good times, but holds up very well in a recession. Very likely candidate to raise dividends and signal strength. VERY high debt, but good margins, steady growth and incredible cash flow producing many necessary products. Great household name and well trusted. Outperform until the markets stabilize and an excellent long hold, but maybe not a perfect CAPS S&P beater in a bull market.
