The following video is from today's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with Jason Moser, Mike Olsen, and Joe Magyer, discuss the latest business news. Shares of Procter & Gamble fell nearly 3% today after the company lowered guidance for the second time in less than two months. Other consumer-products companies such as Unilever and Colgate-Palmolive have seen their shares outperform P&G over the past year. Is the company in trouble, or did Wall Street overreact? In this segment, the guys analyze P&G's recent challenges and share why, despite today's bump in the road, this dividend stock is in good shape for the long run.
Even with today's drop, shares of P&G aren't trading at a bargain-basement price. To find those stocks, check out The Motley Fool's free report "2 Dirt Cheap Stocks With HUGE Dividends."
