Has long held this. They produce medical devices for hips, knees and spines. The sector fell off during lockdowns due to no or few elective surgeries, however that is rebounding. Also, this is a demographic play as the population ages and needs such surgeries. Also, doctors stay loyal to a brand of medical devices. Trades at 25x earnings and has $3.7 billion in free cash. (Analysts’ price target is $288.43)

Not overly bullish on healthcare as a whole, as its growth may be less attractive. Likes medical devices, with a built-in backlog due to Covid. He owns SYK. There should be a significant pickup in procedures over the next 2 years. SYK has strong earnings growth, near a 1-year high. Also look at IHI, the medical devices ETF, packed with companies leading the healthcare sector.

They produce medical devices for hips, knees, hands and ankles. Elective surgeries are coming back after pandemic lockdowns. SYK's medical products reduce medical stays and drug use, which benefits American hospitals and patients. Again demographics are another tailwind. He expects good growth. SYK holds a lot of fresh cash to pay debt and the dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $251.00)

(A Top Pick Jun 05/19, Up 13%) The downside of the pandemic is that elective surgeries were postponed. Knees, hips and other surgical procedures their products are used in were deferred. It is a backlog question. Demographically, more people will need their products.

They're the leader in hips, knees and robotic surgeries. They were hit by COVID because elective surgeries stopped, but those have resumed now. Their revenue growth is 4-5 times higher than peers at 6-7% while peers like Johnson and Johnson were 1-2%. Dividends keep paying. Today is okay to enter this stock, though it's trading at 30x earnings. You can buy a half position now and see what happens.
