Guru Investment Theses on Johnson & Johnson

Ariel Funds Comments on Johnson & Johnson - Sep 28, 2016

Medical giant Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) rallied +12.66%, due to a strong earnings report. In April the company beat analysts’ estimates and also raised guidance for the year. Earnings were driven by strong sales of drugs like Stelara and Xarelto. At this point pharmaceuticals are the company’s largest business division—ahead of powerhouses such as medical devices and consumer health products. We think the trajectory of the business continues to point upward.

Yacktman Funds Comments on Johnson & Johnson - Aug 05, 2016

JNJ (NYSE:JNJ) performed well in the second quarter after delivering solid results. Few companies have the financial strength and product diversity of JNJ, which is why it is one of only two companies in the United States (Microsoft is the other) that commands a triple-A credit rating. We think JNJ can deliver solid growth and strong free cash flow over time.

Charles Brandes Comments on Johnson & Johnson - Oct 21, 2015

Healthcare giant Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), which has diverse operations in pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biotechnology and consumer health, has faced potential competition in its pharmaceutical segment and lingering concerns over product recalls and manufacturing issues in its consumer segment. Nonetheless, we believe the company’s fundamentals remain attractive, including its strong competitive position and balance sheet, as well as a history of prudent capital deployment. The company generates approximately 70% of its revenues from businesses which command a #1 or #2 global market share, and 25% from products launched over the last five years. Speaking to the strength of its balance sheet, Johnson & Johnson is one of only four U.S. industrial companies with a AAA credit rating from both S&P and Moody’s.
