Executive Summary After examining the information provided by the company Johnson & Johnson I believe that it is a strong and successful company. It has continued to grow over the years, and their increase in revenue and net income is proof of that. That fact that it is in an industry that will be forever needed makes it a great choice for an investment. Many would not know that many of the larger skin care companies are sub- companies of Johnson & Johnson. It is great to see a company that wishes to focus not only on one element, but rather many. To me this shows how diverse this company can be, and which must add to its success. This is a company that lives by its credo, for it is mentioned many times in the annual report. It wants to give back to the people, all people, and they have done so, and to me that makes for a profitable company.Johnson & Johnson
