I made a new buy for my Vrijheid Fonds.
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) is one of the foundation stocks of my Vrijheid Fonds. It is always on my watch list and one of my “always buy” stocks. We all know that JNJ has been one of the most consistent and successful companies on earth. This Dividend King has paid dividends since 1944 and has managed to increase them for 54 years in a row! How can you not love this company?
The stock has historically never been truly cheap, and I think it never will be, this because investors recognize and price great companies accordingly.
If we look at the valuation, we can see that the average annual P/E ratio for Johnson & Johnson over the past 15 years has fluctuated from a low of 12.5 in 2009 to a high of 27 back in 2002. In the beginning of this month the P/E has been in the 17 – 18 range. This gave me a great opportunity to buy some extra stocks of this great company.
On the basis of this information/research I took action.
Two weeks ago I bought 15 shares of JNJ at $116.66 per share (incl. fees). With this buy I added a little bit more than €39 (after taxes) of dividend to my Vrijheid Fonds for this year. My projected annual (2017) total amount from my shares of JNJ will be $116 after taxes
The projected dividend income for 2017 for my Vrijheid Fonds is €3,010.
Again a small step in my journey and one-step closer to my goal. Has anyone invested in this company recently? Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
