Stock of the Day: Johnson & Johnson


The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.

Johnson & Johnson has always been a favorite of investors. It's a diversified company that has always paid out a solid dividend. The company has struggled of late, however.

The acquisition of device-maker Synthes gives it a strong position against its competitors, and it has a couple of promising drugs in its pipeline.
