Procter & Gamble (PG -0.3%) buys the remaining 50% stake of a joint venture with Spain's Agrolimen Group for $1B, a move PG says fits with its strategy shift to focus on its largest businesses such as feminine-care and baby-care products. The venture sells products such as Dodot diapers and Kandoo baby wipes in Spain, Portugal and other markets.

    Putting Ackman's money to work..... I wonder if this is what he had in mind.

    I don't recall feminine-care products being one of Ackman's hot buttons in his previous acquisition attempts?

     

    I don't think very many PG loyalist shareholders (and there are plenty of us) are going to be interested in a "throw the Baby or Bob our with the bathwater" approach.

     

    And I don't think he wields much influence with just 1%, unless he could win over a lot of those loyalists. The burden of proof on that will be his burden to carry!

    Nice to see some confidence in Europe from such a large company as PG. Lets hope this is justified.
