Procter Gamble Trading Alerts and Improvement Suggestions

Procter Gamble generated a negative expected return over the last 90 days
The company reports 33.67 B of total liabilities with total debt to equity ratio (D/E) of 0.74, which is normal for its line of buisiness. Procter Gamble has a current ratio of 0.67, implying that it has not enough working capital to pay out debt commitments in time. Debt can assist Procter Gamble until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, Procter Gamble's shareholders could walk away with nothing if the company can't fulfill its legal obligations to repay debt. However, a more frequent occurrence is when companies like Procter Gamble sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for Procter to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about Procter Gamble's use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.

Procter Gamble Greeks

Most traded equities are subject to two types of risk - systematic (i.e., market) and unsystematic (i.e., nonmarket or company-specific) risk. Unsystematic risk is the risk that events specific to Procter Gamble or Consumer Defensive sector will adversely affect the stock's price. This type of risk can be diversified away by owning several different stocks in different industries whose stock prices have shown a small correlation to each other. On the other hand, systematic risk is the risk that Procter Gamble stock's price will be affected by overall stock market movements and cannot be diversified away. So, no matter how many positions you have, you cannot eliminate market risk. However, you can measure a Procter stock's historical response to market movements and buy it if you are comfortable with its volatility direction. Beta and standard deviation are two commonly used measures to help you make the right decision.

The market value of Procter Gamble is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Procter that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Procter Gamble's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Procter Gamble's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because Procter Gamble's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Procter Gamble's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.

Investors typically determine Procter Gamble value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Procter Gamble's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
