A large cap diversified company. Their recent acquisition to get into the robotic spine is positive. It has everything for tools and devices, including pacemakers. The chart looks great. This would be the one to own in the space.

Good company. Biggest product is pacemakers. Trades at 19x earnings. Good stock price stability. Trades attractively against peers. Given the multiple, and predictability of earnings, you should look at a 10% return or greater over time.

They built the first pacemaker and have gone on to make several similar devices. They have gone global. Places like India need these devices for heart disease, for example. The CEO is from Bangladesh and understands this vast market. They are moving from selling the device to improving people's health. If they succeed, they will be hugely profitable. (Analysts’ price target is $116.38)

The stock couldn’t look any better. An absolute buy and hold. It took a long time to break through $100 but they’ve done it. Would be a buyer here.

Don't sell it just to go into a Merck. Add to your diversity instead by buying a basket. Likes Medtronic. Diversified. Into robotic surgery. 8% EPS growth. Relatively inexpensive. Very large, so you don't get the same growth as smaller companies.

Likes it very much. Thought bought Covidien, a medical device maker, a few years back. They're executing very well, such as their diabetes franchise which boosted their guidance recently to 5.5% growth in 2019. Valuation good at 17.5x vs. peers. Many of their products are essential services which is anothe tailwind.

He likes medical device manufacturers. It seems they are taking market share in a booming market. They are well diversified. The company continues to put up great numbers.

Likes this. One of the most dominant medtech companies, diversified from hips and knees to cardio. Good 15x forward earnings and a stable dividend yield. It's an economy of scale game in medtech, and MDT is well-positioned. Great
balance sheet and growth profile.

A dividend aristocrat, gradually increasing the dividend every year. They are in medical devices. Any increase in surgery, hospital time and heart disease would be an upside for this story. It’s been a relative laggard for the group, but has been a very good performer longer-term, and has rewarded shareholders very well. Sees this as a mutual fund of device companies.

Medical devices. A good global name. He has been bullish on medical devices for quite some time. He has shifted that down recently because it was getting close to his break points. Earnings were ratcheted down because of hurricane noise because of Puerto Rican noise. IHI-N is the US ETF he would use to take positions in this sector. You want to get through this next quarter. You have good metrics.

This does stuff mainly related to cardiovascular, diabetes, spinal implants and a lot of neurology stuff. The stock has been bouncing between $90 and $75. Has 4%-5% earnings growth. Dividend yield of 2.3%. (Analysts’ price target is $90.)

(A Top Pick May 25/16. Up 7%.) He really likes the medical device space. If he were to buy something today, he would probably buy a Stryker (SYK-N). The nice thing about devices is that it is not completely dependent on insurance pays. If you would like the whole sector, you can buy the ETF IHI-N.

They have struggled over the most recent years after being a darling. There is the question of how healthcare will be paid for in the US. Device companies have the hardest headwinds. They are also in a very competitive area. It is not expensive and is a perfectly good way to be in the health care area. Their struggles may mean they have more upside potential if the healthcare sector improves.
