1. Interesting as I would think both would be strong performers in the immediate future

Talking with a neighbor who was at Home Depot this weekend to buy some paint and had to wait in a long line to do so. He was told by the paint department clerk that they had been going full tilt for days as folks who are stuck at home are finding things that need painted around the house.

P&G products include paper towels and bathroom tissue so I wouldn't see how they would be doing badly.

5. Adding this

<snip>
The president paraded several company leaders in the White House Rose Garden, starting with Mike Lindell, the chief executive of MyPillow, who has become a regular cheerleader for Trump at his campaign rallies.

Trump praised companies for doing their “patriotic duty” by producing or donating medical equipment to meet America’s most urgent needs. “What they’re doing is incredible,” he said. “These are great companies.”

He went on to invite Lindell, Darius Adamczyk of Honeywell, Debra Waller of Jockey International, David Taylor of Procter & Gamble and Greg Hayes of United Technologies to make short speeches. He introduced Lindell as a “friend” and riffed: “Boy, do you sell those pillows, it’s unbelievable what you do.”
