Owns JNJ instead of Pfizer, because she likes its diversity, and its product pipeline is strong. PFE has a strong balance sheet, but JNJ's is stronger. JNJ's medical device side is recovering nicely, plus they were able to give guidance at a time when many companies can't.

JNJ vs ABBV? He likes JNJ as a long term winner. It may be too expensive. ABBV was a risky company until they purchased Allergan and diversified their business more. ABBV trades at 8.4 times PE and earnings are expected to grow by 8% and have nice, safe dividend. They are still tethered to Humara, which has a lot of generics being developed. He would favor ABBV, although it is a little riskier than JNJ.

It is three different companies: a medical device division; personal care division; and the pharmaceutical division. It continues to execute very well. They are not dependent on their pipeline of drugs. You have a great opportunity to buy a diversified company. There have been some risks on products like talcum powder but they are very good at defending themselves. (Analysts’ price target is $162.10)

In an election year, these kind of stocks get beaten, but JNJ is highly diversified in three divisions including personal products and are not merely into drugs which is a target of politicians in a US election year. JNJ has raised its dividend in each of the past 50 years. Trades at a decent 16x earnings. JNJ faces many lawsuits, but they staunchly defend themselves through appeals.

The pharma sector. Any picks? Pharma's problem is the US election cycle when candidates always bash big pharma. But these stocks are not expensive now, like JNJ which boasts 3 divisions (consumer, medical devices and pharma); and Novo Nordisk, which offers a diabetes pill and obesity pill. Buy a small position now as well as when they pull back during the election campaign, and certainly after the election. NVO increases its dividend perennially. The Dems and Republicans are equally critical of pharma.

She's done very well with it. Litigation about opiates is the overhang, and just got a negative ruling on their anti-psychotic drug. Their drugs are doing well, but there are a lot of negative headlines. They may continue selling off troublesome drugs. They remain very profitable but also volatile.
