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.

Sees opportunities in developing markets and demographics play a good role. Feels their abilities and for similar companies in the medical device area, is to participate with the goal of lowering costs. Companies like this that make the devices, have the opportunity to help lower costs, which will be better for consumers and governments and will ultimately provide better care. Long-term theme.

In a demographic sweet spot doing replacement hips, knees etc. Has been doing extremely well over time and expects it will continue to. Would prefer Zimmer (ZMH-N) because of the valuation and the growth rates.

Not mispriced. Not their strategy, as they buy mispriced stocks. Doesn't think it's bad, but they wouldn't buy.

In the medical device business. They do a lot of orthopaedic devices and equipment for surgical rooms. A lot of the medical device companies have had a slowdown. Seeing some money flowing back into the pharmaceutical industry which is at the detriment of the device companies. Would prefer the generic drug companies.
