A Look At Dividend Champion Jack Henry & Associates

In my A Look At Dividend Champion Jack Henry & Associates post at Dividend Power, I note that although JKHY's share price has retraced to the mid $160s from its ~$213 intra-day high set in early July 2022, the share price decline is no justification to acquire shares.

A company's share price is merely what investors are prepared to pay. Sometimes what investors are prepared to pay has no bearing on the company's underlying fundamentals or the business outlook.

Secondly, I do not care about a company's track record of dividend increases. Using such a track record is tantamount to driving while looking in the rearview mirror.

Thirdly, I am not looking to initiate a new position. I recently completed my January 2023 Investment Holdings Review and am focused on increasing my exposure to existing high-quality holdings.

Fourthly, many executives on earnings calls to which I listen express caution. In some cases, expectations are for the first half of 2023 to be weak with an improvement in the second half. I am not so sure we will see much of a recovery in the second half.

I wish you much success on your journey to financial freedom!
