$PG plans to continue to keep bottom-line growing and to be growing margins through productivity which will both provide fuel for reinvestment and for margin improvement. $PG really doesn't view pricing and promotion as high in terms of its options to grow business. $PG is going to be continuing to invest in business to drive margins.

$PG's core gross margin for 2Q18 declined 80 basis points versus year ago. 150 basis points of productivity savings were more than offset by headwinds of 90 points from higher commodity costs, 70 basis points of mixed impact, 50 basis points from pricing primarily Gillette, and 40 basis points of reinvestment in product and packaging innovation.
