It is also important to say that the company raised its FY2021 outlook for organic sales growth from a range of +2% to +4% to a range of +4% to +5%. The company declared a $0.7907/share quarterly dividend which is in line with previous.
Despite this, my opinion is that Procter & Gamble is currently overvalued and the main drivers of Procter & Gamble’s recent capitalization growth are external. With a $353B market capitalization, this stock is a little expensive and represents opportunity only for short-term traders.
There are some obvious risks when it comes to trading this stock currently but Procter & Gamble’s stability and size will always attract potential investors and traders. The attention of investors is also focused on the US stimulus aid package negotiations and the upcoming presidential elections.
The US presidential elections will be on November 3 and according to the polls, US President Trump’s rival, Joe Biden, leads.
