Just recently purchased this. Has good revision and good valuation in the healthcare space. Products include syringes, monitors, catheters, etc. which healthcare services are in constant need of. Good growth and demand even when everything else is weak. Have some concerns on foreign exchange and margin issues because of increase in costs of raw materials. Expecting about 10% earnings growth in 2009, which is a great earnings profile.

If you go to a hospital in the US and look around, everywhere you go you see their products. There is a lot of concern that hospitals are not going to be able to spend the money that they have in the past so the stock has come down a long ways.

Hospital supplies such as syringes, tests of blood supplies, etc. Off the radar on healthcare reform and pricing reform. Well diversified geographically with about 65% outside the US. Trading at 14 X earnings and looking at 12% growth.

Hospital supply company as well as doing a lot of diagnostics testing. Had disappointing performance in the near term, but she likes it longer term. Growing at 18% to 17% with 60% to 70% of its profits outside of North America.
