4 Weeks Ago- Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)
Johnson & Johnson has had a very flat month. When we initially looked at it, it was trading at $64.58 – today it closed at $64.82 for a big gain of 0.3%. The stock started the month down but has since recovered. With any company this size, there are a number of news stories almost every day, but the most recent big news is that Johnson & Johnson has sued rivals Boston Scientific, Guidant, and Abbott Labs. The lawsuit claims that the rivals reached an agreement on the acquisition of Guidant by Boston Scientific because of information leaked to Abbott. We do not believe this lawsuit will negatively affect Johnson & Johnson in the long-run, but instead may be beneficial to the company as it could be detrimental to their competitors.
We believe Johnson & Johnson is still a very good value for the enterprising investor following Benjamin Graham’s strategies. We believe Johnson & Johnson has potential to reach $81 within the next few years.
