Procter & Gamble's (PG -0.6%) annual shareholder meeting came and went without any blockbuster surprises as CEO Bob McDonald tells attendees that the company will hold its "feet to the fire" to get results moving in the right direction. What might be more striking than what was said is what wasn't. Reps from Pershing Square Capital were silent, while their boss Bill Ackman skipped the affair altogether. (webcast)

    I'm long PG but have to say I was a little disappointed in some of there blatant disregard to some meritorious social concerns brought up by shareholders. I didn't know they were so right wing and possibly homophobic. I'm very conservative myself but I felt I was listening to a meeting of the KKK (not that I would know what that looks or sounds like). I guess the bottom line is all that matters to most investors but not this one. I do like the fundamentals but social responsibility is important also. IMHO
