Proctor & Gamble Co (NYSE:PG) is slated to step into the earnings confessional before tomorrow's open. Analysts anticipate third-quarter profits of $1.72 per share on revenue of $21.6 billion. Looking at PG's earnings history, there's a precedent for decent post-earnings returns, with five of eight next-day sessions ending higher. The last eight quarters produced an average post-earnings move of 2.9%, regardless of direction.

Ahead of the event, PG is lower, last seen down 0.2% at $145.79. The shares are bouncing from below the $142 level, while standing well beneath their early August, more than 12-month high of $158.38. Procter & Gamble stock is down 3.6% in 2023, but maintains a 16.8% year-over-year lead.

Short-term options traders are more bullish than usual. This is according to PG's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 0.61, which stands in the relatively low 18th percentile of annual reading. In other terms, these traders have favored calls over puts.



How to collect 1 dividend check every day for LIFE

Did you know you could collect 1 dividend check every day the market is open? You could also do it starting with just $605! For me, I'm collecting 70 dividend checks every quarter…which averages around 1.1 dividend checks every business day. There's no trading behind this... no penny stocks or high-risk investments. All you do is buy and hold and you're set. There's no set up required either. If you start buying the dividend stocks I show you today... you could collect 1 dividend per day starting as early as this week. Click here for all the details.
