Current Stock Position
Johnson & Johnson is a position that I started in early 2020. Since then I have added to the position but since that time the share price has went up above my cost basis. So even though I have thought about it recently as of yet have I added more to the position.
All of the recent headlines involving the company will surely talk about the talc lawsuit case. Despite, the headlines and the litigation I think the company will do fine over the long term.
I would love to add to this position but until that time I will remain a patient investor.
Regardless of how large or small, I love all dividend increases. That is how we end up with More Dividends 😉
Do you currently hold any stock in Johnson & Johnson? What do you think of this dividend increase? Just let me know in the comments.
As always I look forward to reading all of your comments and questions, until then….. happy investing!
