  1. Onward and upward Captain.....for your dividend cash flow that is. I also put in a limit order for some JNJ this week, so hopefully I'll buy some shares in the next couple days. Have a great week!

    1. Looking forward to your next update. I'm curious have your limit is set at. Best of luck.

  2. Great job Captain! JNJ was a popular pick in April and I added some myself. Wouldn't mind adding some more because this company is excellent. 41% YoY growth is fantastic. Keep up the good work!

    1. I think it may be a popular pick in May as well if it can stay under $100 for much longer.

  3. Great job on another solid months Captain, we share some common names of paying stocks out there. Keep it up!

  4. Captain,

    Great job. And congrats on a new all-time high!

    JNJ is a great stock. Truly one of my favorites. If I didn't already own more than enough, I'd be interested here.

    That chart is moving in the right direction. Keep it up.

    Best regards.
