Current Stock Position

2022 jnj dividend increase

Johnson & Johnson is still a relatively new position for me. I began this position in March of 2020 just as the lockdown for the pandemic was about to begin. Since that time, I have held the position and have reinvested the dividends.

I would love to add to this position but like a lot of my other positions the share price is way above my cost basis. There was a point when Johnson & Johnson started making the headlines for some legal cases that I thought I might finally get a buying opporunity but unfortunately that never came into fruition.

For the time being, I will continue to be patient and hold this position and let the dividends continue to compound.

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!
