I would take the 4 cents, but I will be surprised if we see more than 2 cents a quarter. Horrible performance. I hope you are correct and I am wrong!
EPS is targeted around $5.00 per share this year. J&J is currently paying out at 64% which is higher than their historic avg of ~ 44% . The 64 is because of lower EPS in 2012. I think we will see 4-5 cent/Qtr increase.
