The Consumer Goods Company Investors Can Buy Today

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith discusses topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Austin helps investors answer the question: Should I buy Procter & Gamble today? The simple answer is yes. Procter & Gamble is a great long-term buy-and-hold story, but there is one consumer goods company Austin likes a little more. And coupled with one potentially damaging macro factor, perhaps Procter & Gamble is not the best company in this space right now.
