Procter & Gamble Co (NYSE:PG) Started with a Sell Rating
Procter & Gamble Co (NYSE:PG) is a company that investors consider a bellwether. The company has been proven in good times and bad, and we too consider it a company that can survive even the worst of times, but that does not mean that we consider PG to be a good investment; quite the contrary.
This year EPS growth is expected to be -6.17%, but next year that's expected to bounce back to 11.57%. Growth rates like that would absolutely warrant a multiple like the one placed on shares of PG at this time, but no one is expecting double digit growth from PG going forward. In fact, the expectations seem to be simply reflecting a recovery from declining to more stable Y/Y EPS.
Unfortunately for investors in PG, that offers no solace.
Valuation looks rich, it's going to look rich even if the growth rate expected next year is realized, but there is also plenty of time between then and now. We consider PG, a company that absolutely can weather a storm, to also be a stock that is more apt to decline going forward.
