The Procter & Gamble Company (PG), The Coca-Cola Company (KO): Fortifying the Portfolio in Case of a Downturn

The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) has more ‘strong buy’ ratings and more hold ratings than The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO). The company’s twenty-one analysts rate the stock a 1.9 overall.

Altria is the only stock of the set to be in the ‘hold’ category with a rating of 2.17 from twelve analysts.

Investor Takeaway

All three of these companies and the many more like them are great for holding during down periods. They are even better if you pick them up after a drastic market drop.

I would buy more of all three companies in this article at this stage and in the future should the market decide to drop.
