Here is a great article outlining JNJ and how it should definitely be a holding in your portfolio. http://tinyurl.com/52wzdf
JNJ has been the best of breed in healthcare on the down turn and should continue to be on the upswing.
I have to echo the sentiment that the recent acquisitions of the small biotech shop and mentor could prove to help JNJ in the long run
i like the recent acquisitions for the long-term
Absolutely not, their pipeline is extremely deep.
I wonder if JNJ will be the first company out of this downturn.
Large-cap is still the way to go, we need to stabilize our portfolios.
JNJ will be one of the top healthcare performers in 2009, I bet they buy someone smaller with a really solid pipeline.
Don't be in healthcare if Obama gets in it will be nationalized.
The aging world population will need healthcare, and after those earnings it is definitely not too late.
I don't think its too late for JNJ. The back half of 2009 will be a nice rebound.
