I think this comparison is a little unfair to JNJ.
It has been weak lately, but did hit an all time high
this year. They also changed the old management.
It has performed pretty much in line with pharmaceutical/
medical device stocks. Exxon remains well below
where it was at the end of 2007. Rex Tillerson
who has destroyed hundreds on billions of
dollars of shareholder wealth through his
abysmal, incompetent management is not
going anywhere. Exxon has performed worse
than virtually every single oil company for
years and year. Shareholders have received
absolutely brutal treatment from this management.
There is no other large cap company that has
treated its shareholders so badly over the
last half dozen years.
By the way Excon bulls, how are those $100
per share predictions working out for you?
