History was made last week when the consumer staples sector suffered its worst two-day decline in over 20 years. Consumer staples stocks are favorites among retirees and income investors because they tend to pay attractive dividends and produce steady growth over time.

On the other hand, consumer demand has been resilient, and concentrated on fewer available goods and services. To combat these additional costs, Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) and many other businesses have raised prices on their products. Fortunately for P&G shareholders, consumers are not balking at the increases.
