Investopedia: Johnson Controls Still Reliable, In A Bad Way
When a company is described as "reliable," it's typically meant as a compliment. In the case of Johnson Controls (NYSE:JCI),
however, reliability still means that you can usually expect this
company to underwhelm. Although this remains a company that could be
worth so much more with better financial results (and better
management?), I find it difficult to argue for taking a chance on
Johnson Controls absent a real path to better results.
