Dow component Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) had a rough 2013, underperforming the broader market by 10 percentage points. Should investors expect more of the same this year for the consumer-goods giant?
In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos argues that P&G may have a much better year in 2014. For one, its sales growth should tick higher and reach closer to 4% organic growth. Also, profitability is set for a big boost thanks to all the cost cuts P&G has put in place. Together, he notes, those results promise to fund some strong returns to shareholders in 2014 even if the share price doesn't spike, including nearly $13 billion in spending on dividends and share repurchases.
