The shares of Procter & Gamble Co (NYSE:PG) are cooling off from a Jan. 5, all-time high of $165.32, but still sport a 15.7% year-over-year lead -- down just 0.1% to trade at $158.47 at last check. Better yet, the equity has just pulled back to historically bullish trendline that may push PG just shy of those records in the coming weeks, in the wake of the company's fiscal second-quarter earnings report
 
The trendline in question is Procter & Gamble stock's 40-day moving average. The shares are currently within one standard deviation of this trendline, after a lengthy period above it. According to new data from Schaeffer's Senior Quantitative Analyst Rocky White, seven similar signals have been observed in the past three years. PG enjoyed a positive return one month later in 86% of those cases, averaging a 2.1% gain. From its current perch, a comparable move would place the stock back above $161.
