    I've never bought a stock before, isn't a PEG of 2.27 pretty expensive?

    JNJ has the PE ratio (23) of a growth stock--but its not. The EPS has been dropping steadily while the price goes up. Dividends are popular right now, but the PE ratio will come backtoward the mid teens. With the negative earnings growth, I suspect that the price will drop to make it happen.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
