Warren Buffett didn't provide a ringing endorsement for Procter & Gamble (PG +1.1%) in a CNBC interview (video) today, indicating he doesn't have a solution in mind for the company's stumbles. Typically not shy to back favored names, Buffett says the "jury is out" on P&G.

    I think P&G will do fine up until they introduce the dirty dozen. A shaving razor with 12 blades. FYI, there items are over priced by a mile. That is the problem.

    Nobody needs a damn razor with 12 blades, or 8 blades or 6 blades. Hell, nobody needs a razor with 4 blades. As a consumer and shareholder, it pisses me off when P&G reduces the package size of a product and the price still goes up. 25% less product for 25% more cost. Of course, the price increase could be as much a retailer action as a producer action. I suspect it's both.

    I agree with the above. Last couple of years PG has increased profits by raising prices, instead of raising sales.
