The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer-goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Austin and Andrew help investors answer the question: Should you love this Dow stock? The company up for review today is consumer-goods titan Procter & Gamble. It's hard to overstate the $60 billion company's reach. While it's seemed a bit dull in recent performance, stocks like this are best viewed with a Foolish (which is to say long-term) lens. The company is a consistent market beater and dividend payer for any long-term investor.
