Dow Smackdown: JPMorgan Chase vs. Procter & Gamble

This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and senior analyst Anand Chokkavelu, CFA, discuss topics across the investing world.

As part of The Motley Fool Madness Series, Anand and Austin go head to head analyzing two Dow titans. In today's showdown, we look at two different but hugely influential industry titans -- Procter & Gamble and JPMorgan Chase. P&G is the perennial buy-and-hold stock that so many investors champion, while JPMorgan is the bruised but far-from-out banking giant with lots of upside potential. Both stocks pay respectable dividends and are phenomenally well-run. Anand likes JPMorgan for its depressed price, while Austin takes Procter & Gamble for its recession-resistant track record.
