The broader stock market has been choppy in 2011, and Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) has been taken along for the wild ride. Shares essentially have moved in concert with the Dow Jones Industrial Average this year, squeaking out a small gain. But it’s important to acknowledge that Procter & Gamble also pays a good dividend, so investors have income potential even if shares continue to flatline. Revenues and EPS numbers haven’t been growing at a breakneck pace, but they are indeed still growing — and the power of P&G brands like Gillette, Pampers and Duracell means this company will not be going away, even if the dreaded “double-dip” recession does transpire.
