The consumer products giant emerged from the COVID-19 crisis with strong profits, exceeding its own fiscal year 2020 goals with 6% organic sales growth and 13% core earnings-per-share growth. That was partially thanks to a spike in demand for home-goods brands like Charmin, Bounty, Downy, and more. Procter & Gamble experienced a substantial leap in revenue almost across the board, including net sales of $19.7 billion in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, up 8% from the year before. P&G’s share price has weathered market volatility, rising 15.4% from March 2, 2020, through May 24, 2021. The company even increased its quarterly dividend by 10% in April 2021, making this the 65th consecutive year that P&G has boosted its dividend.
