They are focused on the drug side of health care. There is a lot pressure on costs and from a political perspective as well. The company has had a great run as of late, but drugs can be very volatile. He generally favors the equipment and insurance sectors in health care.

A leading oncology drug producer, trading at 10x earnings and paying a 3% dividend. Many catalysts are coming. They merged with Celgene, a deal which has raised investor expectations, with potentially strong synergies. This could trade at 11x earnings. You can make 20% on this. Holding a healthcare name is key. (Analysts’ price target is $71.64)

BMY vs ABBV? Doesn't own either one of them at the moment. Both stocks will probably do just fine over the next couple of years. Bristol Myers acquisition of Celgene will give them new drug applications. Be cautious on the Canadian tax implication in this acquisition. AbbVie on the other end is struggling with drugs that have been in the pipeline for a number of years and will start to face generic competition. Well managed companies. More comfortable with Bristol Myers.

They're getting a good deal on Celgene. Can't say what he'll do with this stock, but BMY is attractive.

It is a complex business with patents that come off, rising class-action lawsuits and rising regulatory threat politically in the US. He views it as a politically vulnerable industry and would suggest there are better things to buy. (Analysts’ price target is $59.00)

Bristol Myers's latest drugs haven't done as well as they thought. GSK has refocused into pharmaceuticals, and they sold off the consumer products division. After 5 years, they have both come to be around the same price. He would prefer GSK.

He started buying BMY-N ahead of the merger discussions with CELG-Q. If the merger fails, holding the buyer is safer as arbitragers unwind hedges. The combined company would be a good cash flow generator, which would help internal growth and debt pay down.

Heading into the election cycle, pharma will be under pressure. He prefers being into medical devices. He has a hard time being excited about either CELG or BMY, especially if the market is currently jittery. (Analysts’ price target is $100.33)

Acquisition pending, so some analysts aren't allowed to give an opinion while their investment bank is working on the deal. This is in the bucket of US healthcare he doesn't want to own right now. Political risk around drug pricing and lack of pipeline growth.

BMY was going down before their Celgene purchase, which was a good deal (he owned Celgene) at a bargain. BMY didn't do anything particularly wrong; their drugs are doing well. However, Merck is the dominant player in this space with better science, and so is his preferred pick. Better to hold a basket of health stocks though to lessen risk in holding individual health stocks--science keeps changing.

Has given up what Merck has gained. Likes the acquisition, and thinks the reaction is a bit overdone. Up almost 4% today, but still likes it. Yield is 3.37%. (Analysts’ price target is $58.00)

Some people don’t like the deal. CELG-Q and BMY-N like the deal. Stakeholders have come out against it. There is a lot of spread which represents the risk. Stay with it but understand the risks and don't have too big an exposure to it as there is deal risk.

He bought a put as this stock went down. Healthcare has been under pressure lately. Maybe have a January expiration. It's a sort of defensive stock, so okay to hold onto going into 2019.
