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.

A manufacturer of medical and surgical devices. The company has had positive sales growth for over 40 years. They do a great job at identifying areas where they are weak, finding a way to fill that gap and executing the strategy quickly. There is not much exposure they hold in China -- fortuitous right now. Yield 1.03% (Analysts’ price target is $232.92)

A good acquirer and integrator and have a good position in hip and knee replacement. They're aiming for 1,000 robotic installations worldwide, now at 850. They took a drop in their last purchase but they've bounced back. (Analysts’ price target is $232.92)

Investing in healthcare is hard. He holds BDX which he sees it as the shopping mall of healthcare products. He used to own ZBH but they suffered from recalls. He would probably stick to one of the three since he believes they are the best run companies in healthcare.

Medical devices are a good play on aging US demographics. SYK recently merged with a smaller company to consolidate their hips and knees products. He owns its peers including Boston Scientific, but the whole space is enjoying a nice upside. You can buy SYK.

SYK vs. Anthem He likes both. Stryker trades at 23x PE. He owns Anthem, which hit on earnings, but the market was skittish on their expense line. It's a great healthcare company

(A Top Pick Jan 04/19, Up 21%) The best, most innovative medical device company around. It's come off its highs recently as it acquired a spinal business, but it has room to run. It's long grown its earnings for many years. They excel at buying small companies specializing in hips, knees and spines.

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.

Diversified in orthopedics and medical instruments. Zimmer falling on hard times has been to its benefit. Not that expensive, around 20x earnings. Likes it.
