Over on StockTwits, here’s an example of what they’re saying about JNJ:

    $JNJ I can't help but laugh at this. Remember that JNJ management reduced revenue & earnings guidance by 15% for 2020. As a result, the stock… rises from 136 to 153??? WTF?

    There is absolutely no reason why this stock should be anywhere near its 52-week high in this economic environment when considering the guidance provided by JNJ management. Also, remember that JNJ DOES NOT intend to make a profit off of a COVID-19 vaccine. While I believe this is very noble of the company, a potential vaccine will have no positive effect on the company's financials.

    While I can rationalize a value of JNJ around $135-$140 based on current 2020 guidance & dividend increases, it has no business being anywhere in the 150s.

    Good luck everyone, but if I were long JNJ, I'd be getting out and buying back ~15% below current prices and in-line with management guidance.
