I never checked company labels a year ago. Now every time I go to the store to buy house hold products. I check the back specifically to make sure. I'm not putting one dollar in proctor and gamble's pocket.

They are blaming the loss on millenials not shaving!  It's all mr. fuzzy face skinny jean's fault!

The corporate leaders of Proctology & Gallbladder have lost touch with their consumers.  They shit on half of their customers, and wonder why they lost 10% in revenue...

When the man shaming commercial was aired, I started looking at labels too!  I already dropped Gillette years ago for Harry's razors.  They have fed into this liberal craze as well, but I have a 10 year supply of blades and will use them up as it is one of the best razors out there in performance and cost.  I used up all of my old spice products, and now use arm & hammer deoderant and Axe body spray.

I'm sure the millenials are still buying Jillette!

This is the same for me. Never looked before, but now I make sure it is not P&G. Not bought one of their products since that commercial. Let them reap what they have sown.

Indeed. I did not care who manufactured my razorblades (let alone who took over the - back then still good - German manufacturing company of my electric razor) until I came across this moronic advertisement. Well, then, I will simply not give them any more money and I am cheerful, evidently not being the only one who had enough of this bullcrap.

Same,

they conditioned me to look at labels when buying certain stuff.

I already avoided most toxic processed food from huge GMO companies by default. And I use special non-brand almost "privately made" Eco-friendly soaps and shampoos anyway.

But my latest buying decisions concerning toothpaste strictly went to other companies. Those which make better products anyway, P&G is not a high-end quality maker, it's a mass producer. I know someone who works there and told me how much they decreased the quality of certain items in order to raise profits.

Ever wondered why Duracell batteries began to be prone to leaking and destroying your valuable appliances after 2005???

And they took the German "braun" company to the grave.

You guys need to understand that your dollars speak louder than you do.  Your dollars are as big of a vote as your actual vote is at the ballot box.  ALWAYS be conscious of how you spend your money.  ALWAYS be conscious of how you spend your time too.  NEVER spend either on anything that works against your best interest.  Companies like Gillette, Target, and others actively work against men all the while saying that they're for everyone.  NEVER compromise in this area.

Dollars do translate to power. I remember after the Columbine shootings K-Mart decided to get "woke" and removed all pistol ammo from the shelves. HOW socially responsible! GOOD FOR THEM! Of course gun owners began a boycott in response.  At its peak in 1994, Kmart operated 2,323 discount stores and Super Kmart Center locations in the United States. The Columbine shooting was 1999. By 2002 -- three years into the boycott --- Kmart declared bankruptcy. OOOPPPPS.  Then they had to declare bankruptcy AGAIN in 2018---they now have 202 stores still up and operating...90% fewer than they had in 1994. 

GET WOKE! GO BROKE! HA HA

I hate to break the news to you but the CEO of P & G has stated that the fury associated with this ad campaign has said that it was all worth it.  He mentioned that his brands had diminishing visibility and market share.  Now that this campaign has happened Gillette has become more recognized.  He even stated that he knew the ad would be controversial, but his goals were realized in the end.  Remember, negative press is sometimes good.  That's what the CEO is saying.  BTW P & G's stock has performed very well in the last quarter.  In fact the stock beat estimates for earnings.  So in the end this shit storm hasn't really had the entirely negative effect that it may appear to have had.  Only time will tell at this point.  Long term losses are the only thing that will hit this company.  In other words they need to be bleed to death.

Well Travis, David S. Taylor is an imbecile---here is proof:  "In January 2019, Taylor said in Switzerland: "The world would be a better place if my board of directors on down is represented by 50% of the women. We sell our products to more than 50% of the women."The Wall Street Journal noted the company's board of directors has more than twice as many men as it does women." 

The investors in the company might have something to say about the company writing off 50% (men) of their customer base to appease the vanity of another 50% (women). That does not sound like a successful business model to me. But hey what do I know? 6 months ago P&C's stock price was $98 a share and now its $113 a share. There was a dip in June but it came back. I'd like to see it tank at about $40 a share.

Yep, the stock price has gone up and beat estimates.  It sounds tp me like this a been a good ride for P & G over the past couple of months.  Stockholders? Yeah, the stock is making money, full stop.  Look at Apple, it's a known fact that horrible working conditions and major health problems plague the children and elderly people in China who make the products.  Apple hasn't skipped a beat.  The brand has an almost universal appeal, still.  And Apple stock keeps making people money hand over fist.  See the pattern here?

Hey Travis3000, the stock market is going nuts for many, many years, now. It is a senseless catastrophe in slow motion. In other words, the performance of all stocks does not anymore reflect the performance or worth or credibility of the companies which put them out there for us to buy into, BUT it does reflect on the hysteria and desperation of investment capital holders, as well as on the stock markets´ state of being out of control and dangerously warping the world´s economy.

Arguing the stock prices of P&G or Apple or Deutsche Bank would indicate their actual worth and reliability therefore is not sane and misleading.

 

In other words: the pattern does only show the madness of the stock market carrying out its business in an alternative reality. This shit is going to come down, because shit has no wings and no (endlessly fueled) rocket propulsion. It is going to rain shit all over, when the stock market sees correction.

If you actually read my comment you'll notice that I didn't equate stock price with company value/ worth/ reliability.  That's your own opinion of what I wrote and is completely wrong. Please reread what I wrote a few more times, you'll likely understand my point at some point. In fact the entire thread was started on the premise that P &  G lost a large sum of money due to alleged consumer blowback.  I was addressing that relationship and how it relates to the stockholders (Pete brought up the stockholders, so I showed where his input was off, btw that wasn't my overall point).  You'll eventually get what I'm saying here, I have faith in you're ability.

No, you didn´t and neither did I say you did.

Nope, it isn´t my opinion at all and I did get ya from the get go, dare I say?

That premise is only your own opinion 🤣  , because the entire thread was started as a comical relief. Did you by any chance notice the laughing smiley´s in the picture above indicating the humoristic nature? Duh, Travis. But, why not for a meowment assume the tread would have been started on the premise you think it has been started on? Look: It has become clear enough, that the very unpopular advertisements were pretty much involved in the mother-company having to write off 8 billion $ of the daughter Gillette in Q2 2019.

A 8.000.000.000 $ blowback so to speak. Call me what you will, please, but I find that to be funny and noteworthy.

Yes, you did address that and thank you for it. I only was addressing the relationship of the stock markets to the stock holders and how that relates to the involved companies 😀  I just showed where your input could be received as off, without that being my overall point.

 

I think you already got, what I am saying here.

Trust no man and fear no bitch.

Actually my input was not off at all. Travis misunderstood my point. My point was that stockholders are interested in one thing and one thing only---profit. Company leadership which protects profit is competent and company leadership which undermines profit is incompetent. So his Apple comparison really helps to prove my point, not disprove it. No one cares what Apple does so long as it makes money. The "woke" policies promoted by Mr. Taylor obviously have lead to enormous losses--thus my characterization of him as an imbecile. NOW why the company stock price (as an indicator of investor intent) went up instead of down in the face of losses is anyone's guess. And Matcha is right on. Stock price has nothing to do with the "value" of a company rather it is a representation of what a potential investor is willing to shell out in return for profit. So it is speculative at best. Technically a stock price is little more than a momentary "bid" on a future return. Thus my question would be: why would any investor "bid" up a stock for a potential profit when the company loses a shit load of money? So to be clear and erase any confusion THAT was my point.

The company beat out earnings estaments, that's why. Gillete may have lost money but P & G didn't lose money overall not by a long shot, this is a crucial point.  Go look it up, it's public record.  Most all of the professional stock analyzers said that P & G would be making money overall by a healthy clip, and they were right.   Said analytics have been around for the entire last quarter. The company even surpassed the positive earnings estimates by a decent margin.  This isn't rocket science.  The analytics for P & G are just as bright going forward as well.

It is a turd rocket and what goes up, will come down. The brightness ahead is not the end of the tunnel but a freight train. That still is not limited to P&G, however. All these companies with dangerously and crucially inflated stock prices and oh so very bright analytics will at one point "turn around" and rob the tax payers all over the world blind in a way and scale that is about to dwarf what happened back in 08.

Oh, boy, of course they lost money, when a daughter company out of their conglomerate did perform so bad, that they had to write off 8 billion dollars.

That is considered "a loss". Can we not simply agree on that?

However, all this recent (2019) talk about shaving had me seriously reconsidering my facial hairdressing 😊 Especially what C*Pig had written about shaving his neck in the original thread about the Gillette advertisement has reverberated inside of me over the months, so, today, I finally shaved my neck.

Obviously, I first had to scare away some bats and little birds, which had chosen this place for resting and nesting.

And, obviously, you might consider my taking action to be a little quickly, thoughtlessly and rushed, of course.

Turns out, though, thinking this through thouroughly to come to such a timely a conclusion has been the right thing to do, because -who would have known- I have a beautiful neck. That is, I like looking at it being shaved while wearing a full beard in the more upward areas like the chin and cheeks and such.

I will keep on doing so, it seems, because I am pretty + happy with it, of course 😆 

I remember wamens talking about how "a new haircut is a new section of life" and thinking to myself: "these people are really insane and to be avoided".

Anyway, I am still looking forward to buy me an electrical haircutter from Wahl - like the one MG-Tower had posted - when all my razorblades from Gillette and my Beard trimmer from (P&G´s daughter) Braun are consumed.
