Traded JCI for some GSK and never looked back last 6 months. Tired of pretending with JCI, management has no vision...
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Q: Which stock has performed better over the last 10 years, Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway(BRK.B), or Johnson Controls?
A: JCI, of course!
note- BRK.B has not been around 20 years- the grandaddy Buffett co., BRK.A, edged out JCI over 20 yrs. But BRK.A doesn't pay dividends. If you include JCI divs, it beats Buffett again! (All without the godlike following Buffett has).
Q2. Which one stock would you pick to own over the last 20 years: Johnson and Johnson, Walmart, Exxon-Mobil, or Johnson Controls?
A2: well, if you like money you would have picked JCI. That's right, it's outperformed all those monsters over the last 20 years!
Yep, just like a MAXX battery- it's been a long winter, but if you held JCI, let the divs charge up, when Mr. Market is ready to go, JCI is crankin! 40 amps is coming.
Always buy the leader-JCI is best in breed.
Time to take some profit, buy some married puts or write covered calls to lock in some profit.
Johnson Controls upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at RW Baird. Baird upgraded Johnson Controls based on expectations for improving margins and efficiencies, growing automotive end markets, advanced batteries, and low expectations. Price target raised to $44 from $36.
That is a 22% upgrade from previous target and 34% upgrade from yesterday's close.
Should be over $33 again VERY soon!
Grab some popcorn and enjoy te show!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
