JNJ Trading Below Director's Recent Buy Price
By Dividend Channel Staff, Monday, November 28, 11:37 AM ET
There's an old saying on Wall Street about insider buying: there are many possible reasons to sell a stock, but only one reason to buy. Back on August 8, Johnson & Johnson's Director, William D. Perez, invested $61,850.00 into 1,000 shares of JNJ, for a cost per share of $61.85. Bargain hunters tend to pay particular attention to insider buys like this one, because presumably the only reason an insider would take their hard-earned cash and use it to buy stock of their company in the open market, is that they expect to make money.
In trading on Monday, bargain hunters could buy shares of Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) and achieve a cost basis even cheaper than Perez, with shares changing hands as low as $61.78 per share. It should be noted that Perez has collected $1.14/share in dividends since the time of their purchase, so they are currently up 1.7% on their purchase from a total return basis. Johnson & Johnson shares are currently trading up about 2.2% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of JNJ shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
Looking at the chart above, JNJ's low point in its 52 week range is $57.50 per share, with $68.05 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $62.57. By comparison, below is a table showing the prices at which insider buying was recorded over the last six months:

According to the ETF Finder at ETF Channel, JNJ makes up 24.54% of the Pharmaceutical HOLDRS ETF (NASDAQ:PPH) which is trading higher by about 2.5% on the day Monday.
