SWOT Analysis


P & G is a master at building brands (over 300 globally); with competitive advantages in distribution and economies of scale (efficiency) in reaching retailers, and understanding consumer needs. No one invests more in market research. Their diversified portfolio of disposable consumer products is unmatched, including 21 brands with 1 billion or more in annual sales. They are a global leader in innovation.


Defending so many brands at one time is difficult. Fake products, generics, and competition from rivals means boosting brands and maintaining market share is expensive. P&G has to spend billions of dollars (approx. 9 billion annually) in advertising to build and maintain their brands.


Procter & Gamble makes products that can be used and disposed of anywhere in the world. World-wide increased penetration has almost no limits.

PG is making a concerted effort to renew growth and revitalize its profitability. This effort includes discarding over 100 brands that were unprofitable or dragging down profit margins.


Deflationary pressures brought about by Competition. Competition. Competition. There are always competitors who provide similar products, both branded and unbranded, that can eat into market share.

Procter & Gamble (PG) is ranked #236 overall (out of 343) and #35 (out of 43) in the Consumer Defensive sector by the Dividend Analyzer.

Procter & Gamble is a great, steady, slow growing company. Its variety of products, brands, and marketing savvy is beyond impressive. With that said, the company is growing painfully slow.  Average dividend safety and valuation scores do not offset the Profitability & Growth problems PG is having.
