    As I quized in a BRK.B article, and which seemed to irk some of Buffett's disciples- which stock performed better over the last 10 year, and 20 yr. period- Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway, or Johnson Controls?
    A: Johnson Controls, of course! (and they've paid steady divs for decades, which BRK doesn't).

     

    Here's another quiz: If you could pick only one stock to own over the last 20 yrs., would it be JNJ, WMT, XOM, or JCI?
    A: if you like money, you would have picked JCI! - that's right, it outperformed all those monsters.
    I've owned JCI since I started DRPing in the 1980's, sending them $20 per month. They had a rough period during the great recession, as you can imagine given their businesses. But they are best in breed and will lead the recovery in those sectors.

    Arbitrary time point. Over the past 30-40 years, WMT and JNJ have outperformed JCI
