He sold it several months ago, because it outperformed like crazy in late-2018. That was expected, because healthcare is the most defensive sector and Q4 was a bear market with fears of a recession. LLY made an acquisition in oncology and one of their big drugs got withdrawn. Novo Nordisk may launch a diabetes drug in September to fcompete with LLY.

It has one of the best growth profiles on the street with EPS growth at 10%. It trades at a premium to its peers, though. They have some potential blockbuster drugs focused on diabetes and heart disease. Itt depends on the effectiveness of that drug. Now is a good entry point. (Analysts’ price target is $125.81)

The whole drug industry is a slow growth one. It is difficult to get top line growth. That growth tends to come from a revolving set of assets. MRK-N has a bit of a leg up and is growing rapidly. It has a long runway before patent expiration. He prefers MRK-N.

Likes it. One of better growth profiles for large cap pharma. Exceptional job building out the pipeline in oncology and diabetes. Cardiac drug seems like becoming the standard of care. Some hiccups, but the market gave them a pass. 14-15% EPS growth. 17x next year's earnings. Make sure the launches are on track next quarter.

(A Top Pick Dec 18/18, Up 17%) He owned a lot in this sector and sold on strength. He would have no problem buying it if he did not have a healthcare stock. It is one of the few areas that are truly in a secular bull market.

He is not yet taking profits. They dominate the insulin business. As the world gets larger and overeats … The stock takes patience. It will probably sell off with the market.

What does the increase in volume signal? Some technicians see volume as confirmation. You need volume spike to confirm a move. On the downside, volume doesn't tell you a lot, as things can start slowly. So don't read too much into it. If this stock comes back down to north of $105, a lot of investors would probably come back in. A good name, if you didn't want to buy XLD or HHL.T.

Broke out over the summer. Healthcare is one of the few sectors that's in a secular bull market, and is even making new highs in the current bull market. LLY tends to beat guidance. They deliver. This trend should continue into 2019. (Analysts’ price target is $114.96)

He likes this. They have a diversified pipeline. Had a couple of mishaps. A fair amount was baked into their Alzheimer’s drug in November, and they kind of walked away from it. Also, their anti-inflammatory did not get FDA approval. There was some positive data from their Monarch pretrial, phase 3 of breast cancer. This is a very strong hold.

The whole drug sector in general has been suffering badly. For the last decade or so, it has been almost impossible to raise drug prices. The election of Donald Trump may be favourable to the drug sector. They are all suffering with the increasing movement of generic drugs, and all have relatively weak pipelines. Most of the pharma sector is struggling, and even cutting back on research and development. He would look elsewhere.

Right now Pharma is struggling. This company has cash generation and a diversified portfolio lineup. There are a number of factors for right now, but healthcare is facing a lot of headwinds now. You should be looking at this in the 10s, maybe low teens growth profile.

One of the laggards in the pharma group. If a company can’t do well in a good market, then it is time to move on. Prefers JNJ-N for pharma exposure.

Cheap on this year’s earnings, but not so cheap on next year’s. Part of the problem with this company is that one of their major drugs Cymbalta goes off patent at the end of 2013. In the 3rd quarter this drug was over 20% of their revenues, so they are looking at a pretty significant drop in revenues in 2014 and a more significant drop in earnings. A more interesting one would be Pfizer (PFE-N) as there are catalysts for change as they are looking at breaking this company up into 3 different divisions starting in 3 years but will start reporting on those divisions individually next year. He holds no pharmaceuticals at this time.

Been undergoing struggles with patent expiry and competition. Massive R&D budget and it is hard to know when they will have the next block buster drug. A good blue chip name to own. JNJ might be a safer way to participate.
