Wells Fargo backs off bullish view of Procter & Gamble

  • Wells Fargo downgrades Procter & Gamble (PG) to Market Perform from Outperform and reduces estimates for FQ4 and fiscal years 2015-2016.
  • The investment firm hasn't seen the fundamental forward progress that it expected and has lost some faith that growth drivers will fire up.
  • PG -0.5% premarket

    Give me a break. P&G's previous quarterly results were primarily related to currency trade issues not how the business is performing; they seem to be hitting on all cylinders. Given that they are trading at about 8% below their peers on a PE basis, I don't understand the "market perform" result. P&G should be at $87 today and I'll bet when they report in three weeks the new target will be over $90.

    PG's intrinsic value I use is closer to $100 and it is downright #1 on my pre-screening list of DGI stocks. Why should I as a long term (i.e. forever) investor care what some bored eval team comes up with between breakfast and brunch...

    Market perform, depending on how you think the market will perform.

    Ah come on Wells Fargo, just a "Market Perform?" I wanted a "Neutral." I want more 'bad news' for PG.

     

    That ain't enough.

     

    Long PG (and wanting to add more)
