ADP Is Overvalued

In my March 28 Automatic Data Processing (ADP) Is Overvalued guest post at Dividend Power, I lay out my rationale for not wanting to add to my current exposure.

I have no idea how ADP's share price will behave in the very short term. I am, however, reasonably confident its share price will be higher a decade from now. Nevertheless, I try to acquire undervalued shares with the objective of being able to generate a double digit annual rate of return over several years. I must pay attention to share valuation otherwise the odds diminish that I can generate this rate of return.

I have been an ADP shareholder for ~2 decades and it was my 17th largest holding when I completed my 2023 Year End FFJ Portfolio Review. My plan is to add to my exposure when appropriate. At the moment, however, I think ADP is overvalued and it is not sufficiently attractive and I will bide my time.

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