  1. Gotta love getting a raise. 🙂 What do you think of JNJ’s valuation here, trading with a P/E of 19? I’d like to add this company at some point to my portfolio, just doesn’t seem to want to pull back much here lately.

    Best wishes,

    • Hey SFZ,
      I think its really expensive here – no matter how I look at it – P/E, Forward P/E, P/B. I am holding off for a better valuation and will be looking to add to my position.


    • Its a start, Evan. Like I mentioned in the post, I own just 15 shares – but looking to add to my position…just looking for better valuation.

      Thanks for stopping by and the comment

      Best wishes
