Johnson & Johnson - Looking Like it Needs Some Vitamins

Johnson and Johnson is a "Power Leading" Dow 30 - Industrials composite Company. It is on a Strong Hold but my Indicators are breaking down and that puts questions to mind as to - How Long to Hold?

I am just a cautious Asset Manager that is always focused on the negative. That's good if your Asset Manager lets profits accumulate. You will find from both my Performance Records and my archive of articles on Companies such as that I a pretty darn good at letting profits accumulate.

My previously written articles on JNJ (just click) provide you the history of my forecasting, its accuracy and support for my performance. For over 50 years my management objective is to identify changing trends for my forecasting analytics. I simple want to have current notes to quickly refer to on the anticipated direction of this company and its industry peers.

My Performance for Johnson & Johnson can be found below and is well over 20% per year for the last 5 years.

Look at the Profits for JNJ - Over the Years

It is simple, all Companies Cycle from "Favorable" to "Un-Favorable" and in between, they are "Also Rans." This horse-racing metaphor is the best guidance I have to explain how to know the Good / Bad and the Ugly for all securities on the planet.

Johnson & Johnson - has: a) gone UP in 20 years - - BUT - - (study the peak to peak and trough to trough); b) is UP over 100% in Favorable time-frames; is DOWN over 50% in Un-Favorable time-frames; and c) has spent years as an "Also-Ran."

Forecast w/ 5 Year Performance

Johnson & Johnson and other Health Care Companies are tracking the Dow Industrials well. Although (NYSE:JNJ) is currently in a strong Rally it is reaching a point of concern. Until a severe Bear Markets take it Down, which is ALWAYS, it Forecasts very positively. This is why I am a very cautious and prudent Asset Manager. The last two Bear Markets of 1999 and 2008 each took over 40% of your hard earned growth away for well over a year each. Please study my 20 year chart below and follow my Bearish "Warnings" and you will hopefully see why I spend so much of my time Forecasting.

My Current Forecast is not as bright as you may think! (I will be more specific upon request).

If you own or are considering owning Pharmaceutical Companies, the securities have definitely become a bit questionable. Johnson & Johnson is currently strong Technically but I have reservations about my Fundamental Valuation, they are flat for the foreseeable future. I have placed it on an Initial Bearish Forecast - "Warning."

My Current Opinion is to HOLD in anticipation of taking profits.

* Fundamentally - ( weighting - - 40% ): My Analytics (weighting) for my Fundamental Valuation play a vital role in profitable managing money. At this time my Valuations of (JNJ) are not as positive at perhaps you are being told by other sources. Plainly stated they are Flat to mildly Descending.

* Technically - ( weighting - - 35% ): Even with this stalwart Company, my Indicators are breaking down. It is currently selling for $101. The current rally, is in place and working reasonable well for (JNJ). It like all other rallies and pull-backs will tell an accurate story as to the future direction of the price of (JNJ). After 50 years of studying (JNJ), it is just a matter of knowing how to read those ascending and descending moves -- please see and study the below 20 year chart.

* Consensus Opinion - ( weighting - - 25% ): My third pillar of Research is one that is ALWAYS distorted to the Positive by most all financial analysts. That's because they are afraid of being Bearish. I Am NOT! My articles on "Reality" are supportive of the below 20 year Chart.

I will personally and promptly reply to any serious investor's inquiry as to my very cautious position for (JNJ) !


"Selectivity" is what I preach (along with Discipline and Patience) and is what separates the Average Investor and Mutual Funds from the profits that come with long-hours / hard work and "Selectivity."
