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.
