My Best Healthcare Stock Picks For 2013 | Last Year’s Picks Gained 31.55%
Last year at this time, I made a screen of some stocks from the healthcare sector with an interesting market valuation, a great past growth performance as well as good earnings situation. Such stocks had a forward price to earnings ratio of less than 15, a sales growth over the past five years of more than 10 percent as well as an operating margin above 10 percent. Exactly seven stocks fulfilled these criteria. Now, I review these picks and try to discover a new list of potential stocks for next year, 2013. Over the recent year the Dow is up 8.36 percent, the S&P 500 gained 13.82 percent and the NASDAQ is 14.58 percent higher. My seven healthcare picks performed in average 31.55 percent while the healthcare sector gained 25.7 percent. Below is a current screen of the seven picks.
The Best Healthcare Growth Picks Of The Next Five Years
Healthcare Dividend Stocks With Highest Expected EPS Growth Researched By “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. I like healthcare companies because the sector is a long-term growth area due to the ongoing aging population. The sector is a 46.1 trillion bet on stronger than expected health diseases with a current dividend yield of 3.20 percent.
I made a little screen of the best large capitalized stocks with the highest expected earnings per share growth for the next five years. The industry with the biggest earnings forecast is definitely the biotechnology industry, followed by medical appliances and equipment stocks. But those companies pay no dividends. I focused on stocks with a positive yield and a double digit earnings growth. Finally, fourteen companies remained of which all are currently recommended to buy. The mostly represented companies are from the healthcare plans industry.
