Good demographic growth--people are getting older and need hip and knee replacement. They just bought a company that will make SYK the biggest company serving hands and ankles. Another plus is that doctors tend to stick with the same medical product manufacturers. They have $3 billion in free cash and pays a nice dividend. They constantly buy companies, but their debt is fine. (Analysts’ price target is $231.08)

SYK vs. JNJ SYK makes medical products while JNJ also produces that plus pharma and personal care products, but are fighting talcum powder lawsuits that will persist. Despite this, he much prefers JNJ due to better diversification and valuation. But wait for a better entry point.

The medical device sector has been a leading group for the last three years and he has been a big proponent. They are interesting because it is secular growth. Demographics support what these companies are doing. They are very defensible because they are not tied to the economic cycle. So long as growth performs well, he likes this group. He owns it through the medical devices ETF.

A great company that makes medical devices and does hip replacements. A surgeon that uses their equipment won't suddenly switch to another brand; the doctor will stay with Stryker. A problem is that sometimes the FDA approves medical devices too quickly--though that isn't a problem with Stryker. This is a good long-term hold.
