Shares of Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) rose 10.8% in November, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence, as the consumer products giant benefited from a bullish outlook on its position in the market. Billionaire investor Nelson Peltz revealed that his Trian Fund had increased its stake in Procter & Gamble, though not by any significant size. Where it had previously owned 5,457 shares worth $785,000 -- Peltz's smallest holding -- the fund now owned 5,589 shares worth $706,000.
From the end of the Great Recession to the end of 2021, the broad-based S&P 500 index rocketed 600% higher, but the tech-heavy Nasdaq-100 did even better, returning some 1,250% over that time frame. Rather than using what won yesterday, investors need to fortify their portfolio for the recession that may come tomorrow, and there's no better way to do that than with dividend stocks. Between 1930 and 2021, dividend stocks have never had a decade when they had negative returns, something even the S&P 500 itself can't say.
Procter & Gamble (PG) closed the most recent trading day at $149.25, moving +0.06% from the previous trading session.
