Joint replacements. A great international growth story. The rising middle class globally will be spending more money on health care, so it is a good longer-term global story. Strong balance sheet. Very high return on equity at around 18%-19% consistently. Growing their dividend at around 25% compounded over the last 3-4 years.

(A Top Pick Nov 19/13. Up 20.73%.) Artificial hips, joints etc. There has been some consolidation and there will be more. This is one of the bigger names, so they could be the buyer. Technology is playing a big role. Demographics will play a big role in this. He is also looking at other names in this space.

Medical devices, such as hips and knees. She does like the space which plays into aging demographics. She gets her exposure through Johnson & Johnson (JNJ-N), which has other divisions making their earnings more stable.

Generally, this is fine. It is a good company. They do medical beds, surgical implants and things like that. Has struggled at various points, but overall he feels there is a bit of a renaissance in healthcare and hospitalizations. Probably a mild Buy, not a table pounder.

In valuations, they are at the lower end of the group. There are a few factors going on, more industry-specific. You would think there was a very good demand from an aging population, but you are also getting all the change within the industry, where there are larger buying groups. With the valuations where they are, this is okay, but you’re not getting a fabulous deal. Pretty good company and a pretty good stock to own. Trading at 17X forward earnings.

Sector that has come up a little in value. Great long term demographic. Knees and Hips, expanding into Shoulders and Feet. 4-6% organic growth plus any acquisitions. Yield is marginal, 1.5%, but returning something.

Would recommend this as a long Hold. Equipment manufacturing component of the healthcare business is the most exciting. There is starting to be a big increase in operations. Just made an acquisition of a company that manufactures robots that does surgery. 5 years out, 18% of all surgeries are going to be performed by robots. This company is a dominant player.

This is a play on joint and hip replacements. They are also into hospital equipment such as beds and lights over the beds. Big innovator and great long-term track record of growing the dividends. Yield of 1.67%.

A lot of competition for companies like this. Their main job is producing medical devices, such as hips, knees, etc. With the aging population, everybody is going to need these things. This company will do well in expanding into emerging markets. Right now they are basically North American focused. Last quarter came out with some really good numbers, including good cash flow. Not sure he likes the current price. 1.4% dividend yield.
