It's been in the doghouse, but what will be positive is in them creating a vertically integrated healthcare service that ranges from insurance to clinics to filling prescriptions. The clinics will offer people an alternative to emergency room services, like taking your blood pressure. (Analysts’ price target is $72.44)

A value trap. It has been punished lately on its stock price and is a political punching bag that both Republicans and Democrats are beating up on. He would stay away. (Analysts’ price target is $75.00)

He sold it. It's cheap stock, but the issue is they can't integrate Aetna well. Also, they're considering a new store format from a vertical perspective to become more of a health centre. He doesn't think this vertical integration makes sense and expects more downside until CVS can show something positive from this integration. It doesn't help that American politicians are decrying rising healthcare costs.

Convenience stores have more defensibility against the online model. Fails to see topline growth. Plus, they levered up for that acquisition 2 years ago. The company will be around for a while, but at what cost.

It has been a tough situation. They have been in flux. They made a big acquisition in Aetna. It will give them the healthcare footprint. They have a store within 3 miles of 70% of the US population. They can solve chronic, non-emergency situations. They provide a low cost alternative to emergency rooms. He is being patient with it. He thinks it will be a winner in the future. They had an earnings issue with one of their divisions. He thinks they are very smart.

It's lagged in the past year. Just closed the Aetna purchase. Lots of negative sentiment, including political talk of limiting drug costs as well as fears of Amazon taking over drug delivery. Aetna recently decreased their guidance and the stock dropped. That said, CVS they have good assets including health insurance. Trades at a low 8x multiple. She'll wait what they have to say on investor day in May. Yield is over 3%.

He decided to get out because they were on the defensive too much. In the US a lot of funding for drugs comes from the government. They are always looking for ways to bring down healthcare costs in the US. They keep making acquisitions to make the company make sense. He would probably prefer WBA-Q.

It has yield support of about 3%. Earnings are improving as they do the right things, leading to 8-10% growth. The retail space does not excite him. It has significant overhead resistance. There are better spaces to be in right now. He would look more towards medical devices rather than this space.

They're positioning themselves in vertical integration to succeed. They just closed the Aetna (insurer) purchase. CVS has 10,000 locations in the U.S. can capitalizing in healthcare by creating a clinic system within CVS locations to address non-emergency medical chronic issues (i.e. testing blood pressure). Most medical issues are not emergencies but they cost emergency rooms heavily. CVS helps address this problem.

CVS or BAC? He owns both and struggles to pick one over the other. Building a portfolio with different balances makes sense. CVS is a little out of favour as it is being "Amazoned". However, they have 11,000 locations in the US and have set up mini-health clinics with nurses on staff -- a good differentiation. BAC has corrected and is now trading at recessionary levels (below book value) -- extreme levels not seen since 2008 and great value.

(A Top Pick Jun 01/18, Up 27%) It was so cheap this summer. The big news is that they have closed the AETNA acquisition and he thinks there is still room to move higher. The trend to lowering health care costs is possible and this is the combination to take advantage. He thinks it will trade over $100 next year.

He likes it. He bought it mid-year in a fund he manages. It is below what he paid now but represents pretty good value. They are going through a proposed merger which should be finalized by the end of the year. There are too many pharmacies out there. Pricing is also a headwind, as is food. They are doing a vertical integration with other health care companies. It is probably a $75-$105 stock. It is a defensive part of his portfolio. With the dividend it should make double digit returns. (Analysts’ price target is $92.00)

Tremendous opportunity here. Investors feared that Amazon would crush this sector, but this won't happen. They will merge with insurer Aetna soon which will me them more vertical altogether. CVS has 10,000 locations in the U.S., and 70% of Americans live near one. Most medical issues are minor and chronic, but health costs in the U.S. are expensive. So, going to a CVS instead is a lot cheaper. CVS is inexpensive with a lot of room to run.

He is bullish on healthcare.  It began underperforming in 2015.  It broke out recently.  It is the largest industry weight in almost all of his portfolios.  His biggest concern is that they have a direct exposure to pharma prices.  He prefers United Health.  XLV-Q plays it broadly but he does not recommend ETFs.  You can see what happened to it in 2015.
