Procter & Gamble's (PG) plan to save $2B by stretching out supplier payments is nothing new in the industry. Kimberly-Clark, Church & David, and Energizer Holdings all beat the company to the punch in employing the tactic to free up cash. What to watch: If automobile manufacturers decide to toy with the same idea, analysts think it could create a cash pinch for suppliers such as BWA, NAV, FSYS, FDML, AXL, TOWR, JCI, DLPH, and LEA.
