Medical devices. A lot of elective surgeries were put off but are now coming back. They acquired an ankle and wrist company. There is good international growth. There is a risk in the steep learning curve on these products. (Analysts’ price target is $213.91)

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.

Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Stryker enjoyed a bounce after beating Q2 revenues and earnings a month ago, but has been rangebound between $180 and $205 since Easter. Typical of the other medical device stocks here, it has yet to return to pre-COVID highs of $226, but trades at a 27.44x PE, far more reasonable than peers including Intuitive Surgical.

Medical devices have had a tough year, as elective surgeries have been put on hold. Will continue to do well as surgeries come back. Steep learning curve when it comes to these products, so that's a risk. But once doctors learn the mechanics, they're repeat users. Demographic play. At a good level here.

Medtronic vs. Stryker Both make medical devices, and have been impacted by COVID, because operations have been delayed. But now those ops are coming back. She owns JNJ instead, which includes a medical devices division. Unless there's a sharp uptick in the virus that shuts down hospitals again, demand for medical devices should rise and should even ramp in the near future.

He just bought a huge chunk this morning. A company that makes medical devices and is the leader in hips, knees and shoulder replacement. The sales force is their moat. It is able to pivot really quickly. They produce the best products, makes good acquisitions and deploys cash well.

They make medical and surgical equipment in orthopedics. They just bought a hands-and-ankles medical company. Most elective surgeries were postponed in the pandemic, but are slowly coming back now which benefits SYK. Salespeople are very knowledgeable about their products. Doctors remain loyal to SYK's products and won't switch to another company. (Analysts’ price target is $205.79)

A medical device company. Elective surgeries have been slowed during the pandemic, but will still need to done. Demographics mean this will continue to grow. There is brand loyalty in the space as parts are not easily exchangeable. About 25% of cash flow goes to dividends and the rest towards acquisitions and paying down debt. Yield 1.31% (Analysts’ price target is $205.63)

Likes it. He hasn't bought it, because he isn't sure which stock to own in this sector. Abbott and Boston Scientific are better choices, he thinks, with more upside potential given product innovation.

A great medical equipment company. Over time, they've consolidated and grown. Demographic trends are on his side. But he owns Abbott instead; you can't own everything. Wait for more of a pullback to buy. If the PE falls to the low-$20s, step in.
