P&G
My portfolio is weak in consumer staples and defensive, so I've been eyeing PG. I just picked up 131 shares @ $76.00.
Though not in this category; TGT is looking mighty fine… but I think I’m going to hold out even longer.

RE: P&G
Ooooh, very fair price for PG.

I'd buy here but I've got a chunk of UL. So, have limit order in for under $73 for PG. If it trades, I'll be more than satisfied, if not, UL's been good to me so far. It's nice to see some of these stalwarts trading down closer to fair value. Hoping the hot money will keep chasing FB and AMZN so the steady-eddie's can drift lower.

RE: P&G
I know it is not wise to fret over pennies, especially when you plan to hold for decades, but I had an order page filled this morning when PG was down over a percent, but for some reason I held off. Checked back in after the close and it is actually up for the day. Oh well.

I agree that PG is trading at a more attractive price with the recent dip, and I will pick up those shares soon. With a little luck, we'll get an even better entry opportunity next week.

Don't you hate that? I checked pre-market action around 9:00 this morning and there were a few bargains I was interested in. Like you, I set limit orders only pennies below the pre-market price. Most of them opened at a higher price and they all closed much higher and never traded.

Did get a lowball limit order for General Mills that I had in for about a month to finally fill today.
