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.
Best Dividend Paying Stock List As Of December 2012
The best equity investment is a stock with good fundamentals and a convincing equity story. If this stock is also attractive valuated it could promise good returns. I’ve tried to summarize some significant fundamentals in order to screen the whole capital markets by interesting dividend stocks. Every month, I create a quick dividend list (from low-yield to high-yield paying stocks) of stocks with interesting performance and valuation figures. Stocks from that list are mid- and large caps (market capitalization of more than USD 1 billion) with double-digit long-term earnings growth rates. The companies are traded at AMEX, NYSE, NASDAQ and part of the Dow Jones, S&P 500 or Nasdaq Composite. The list is selected by the following criteria and sorted by dividend yield.
