Procter & Gamble (PG), referred to as P&G from here on, needs no introduction to dividend growth investors as their stable of brands and excellent history of dividend growth are well-known. Brands such as Pampers, Bounce, Downy, Tide, Charmin, Bounty, Febreze, Dawn, Mr. Clean, Crest and many others.

P&G is one of the largest businesses in the consumer goods sector. What has made P&G investors happy is the repeat nature of the business by selling consumable goods that are used regularly. Consumer Goods as a Service, so to speak.
