More on Johnson & Johnson (JNJ): Pharmaceutical sales in the U.S. rose 14.6% Y/Y to $3.288B. On a regional basis, gains in the Western Hemisphere and Asia-Pacific Africa helped to offset a 3.4% decline of revenue in Europe. Sees full-year 2012 EPS of $5.05-$5.10, lower than prior guidance of $5.00-$5.07 and the consensus mark of analysts calling for $5.06. Shares +1.2% premarket. (PR)

    Nice increases considering we cannot get anything from Congress or President on direction. The fiscal cliff is coming, I'm surprised things are this good. VOTE

    Agreed. JNJ continues to deliver, even when analysts are rating them a sell. What a joke.

    Fwiw, M* still considers JNJ as "undervalued", pointing to a strong pipeline of new drugs more than offsetting weak performance in their consumer segment.
