Just yesterday, one of those Fools, InvestorDeb, succinctly summed up the Procter & Gamble bull case for our community:

The company is ahead of plan on its restructuring program (its goal is to see $10 billion in savings by 2016). Industry consolidation will result in fewer competitors, and that should lead to a more favorable price/mix. Lower commodity costs and a weaker dollar should help increase margins. Worth 1/3 of a position here, with more money being added if we get a strong sell-off in February/March on debt ceiling woes.
