Allan Tong’s Discover Picks The pandemic helped BDX, since most of its products are disposable. Then again, during the spring lockdown, surgeries were cancelled across the board, so use of BDX's products nearly halted. Its chart this year has been rocky, though earlier this month, the stock returned to previous highs above $280 while it has met or narrowly beat its EPS in the past four quarters. BDX continues to be profitable at a margin of 7.13% and a 15.41% five-year average revenue growth. Forward PE stands at 20.44x and it pays a dividend of 1.2%.

One of the better US healthcare companies, making needles and test tubes. BDX has done very well in recent years though flat during COVID, so he expects a catch-up. No reason to be afraid of this. It's a solid stock that will grow 3-5% annually.

(A Top Pick Jun 24/19, Up 12%) The only company that can manufacture disposable, consumable medical products, especially syringes. They benefit from the pandemic and will benefit from the aging population.

(A Top Pick Jun 24/19, Down 6%) Hospitals were kind of closed across North America. These guys were a supplier for hospitals. If there are no surgeries then there is less demand for their one time use products. A billion plus doses of a vaccine will require their syringes.

Most of their medical devices are disposable, and now they have a new COVID test. So, 90% of revenues are recurring and will only increase by 14% in the coming 12 months and double-digits in years to follow. They are incredibly well-positioned and enjoy consistent demand. (Analysts’ price target is $268.53)

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.

A big miss in earnings and sold off. Move on. Maybe it finds its footing in a few days.

The stock took a hit but he would hold. Their pump software is not working and they had to withdraw it from the market. Yesterday, they reduced their forward earnings $12-$12.10. He wouldn't buy it today, but if it falls to 15x earnings, he would pull the trigger. They started with needles and they have existed for over 100 years. They continue to pay down their debt and their dividends are rising at around 7%. You can invest in it and let the company do what it does.

A very solid business, making most of the syringes etc. used in hospitals world-wide. This business is growing. They sell at 25+ times earnings because of the quality of the business. (Analysts’ price target is $282.00)

(A Top Pick Nov 02/18, Up 11%) Medical supplies giant. They've been around for 100 year. Syringes are their big product. They made a large acquisition but are paying down debt. They continue their investment grade credit. The medical supply business has done better than pharmaceuticals.

Favorable time to own health stocks in front of the US elections. A very solid investment you can certainly sleep at night with it. Would be a bit cautious on the purchase price and buy it on a downturn.

Just because the population is aging, doesn't mean you'll benefit from it. BDX is in medical supplies, not drugs, supplying hospitals. They've pulled back a little, because a product is under FDA review. They have a good record of raising their dividend, and they have a long runway of opportunities ahead. (Analysts’ price target is $259.67)

One of the solid players in the sector. The Health Care sector has been disrupted before elections as politicians take it out on the companies in the sector. Great time to buy it and hold it riding the volatility until the election.

A century-old company. Stumbled last quarter after the FDA pulled a product of theirs. They are great operators. They are paying down debt after an acquisition, but that will be finished soon. They have a wide moat. Good valuation, a slow grower and big in countries like China. Definitely look at it after a pullback.
