Johnson & Johnson reported second quarter 2022 earnings that beat both top- and bottom-line estimate consensus estimates. Johnson & Johnson maintained the midpoints of its full-year non-GAAP adjusted operational sales and earnings per share guidance during its latest earnings update but reduced its reported sales and earnings guidance due to headwinds stemming from a strengthening US dollar. We continue to like Johnson & Johnson as an idea in both the Best Idea Newsletter and Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolios. Shares of JNJ yield ~2.6% as of this writing. Please note that Johnson & Johnson is in the process of spinning off its ‘Consumer Health’ segment as a separate publicly traded entity by 2023 through a tax-free transaction. The firm is still working out the details and intends to finalize the organizational design of the new enterprise by the end of this year.
