Selling JNJ and PG now may be the right move; time will tell.
IMO, putting some of your proceeds into VTI or a similar ETF is an EXCELLENT idea.
Over time, I have had been somewhat challenged at beating the market. I bet that is the case for most posters. Only way to know for sure is to accurately compute your returns and compare; I've been doing just that for many years. Just make sure you're not using the same calculator as the one the Beardstown Ladies used!
If I could do it over, I would have more than the approx 25% of my holdings in total market vehicles.
