Hot Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

Investing in the healthcare sector can sometimes feel like riding a roller coaster, but there’s little denying that the sector tends to outperform over time. Over the last 11 years, the healthcare sector has outperformed the broad-based S&P 500 in eight of those years. Furthermore, it was among the three top-performing sectors in five out of those 11 years.  

Of course, being a healthcare investor means two things: (1) You’ll need to be patient, because drug and device development takes time, and (2) you have to be picky and really do your homework, because there are a lot of companies that won’t succeed. 

With this in mind, we asked three of our Motley Fool investors to name one healthcare stock they believe could be worth buying right now. Cancer drug developer Exelixis (NASDAQ:EXEL), generic-drug manufacturer Lannett (NYSE:LCI), and medical device megacap Medtronic (NYSE:MDT) all made the cut.

    The mood was negative on Wall Street on Wednesday, and most major benchmarks finished in the red. Strength in the technology sector wasn’t enough to lift more cyclically focused benchmarks like the Dow Jones Industrial Average, and the combination of an attack on Saudi Arabia that sent oil prices higher and some disquieting readings on the inflation front kept investors from feeling more confident about stocks going into earnings season. In addition, some individual companies had bad news that sent their shares lower. Analogic (NASDAQ:ALOG), QuinStreet (NASDAQ:QNST), and MSC Industrial Direct (NYSE:MSM) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

Hot Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2019: Discovery Communications, Inc.(DISCB)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Billy Duberstein]

    Discovery, Inc. (NASDAQ:DISCA) (NASDAQ:DISCB) (NASDAQ:DISCK) has traded very cheaply over the past few years. As more and more U.S. consumers “cut the cord” on the traditional cable bundle, Discovery’s channels (which now include all Scripps Networks Interactive channels) have seen their subscriber counts decline. That, combined with the high debt load incurred for the company’s 2017 acquisition of Scripps Networks Interactive, sent investors running for the hills last year. In 2017, the company’s three share classes dropped from roughly 10% to roughly 21%.

    You might think Discovery Inc.’s (NASDAQ:DISCA) (NASDAQ:DISCK) (NASDAQ:DISCB) stations primarily feature nature videos and celebrity cooks, but did you know it’s actually becoming a player on the international sports scene? While known for its namesake Discovery Channel and documentary brands such as The Learning Channel, HGTV, and the Food Network, Discovery has actually been in the sports business since 2012, when it first acquired a minority stake in European sports channel Eurosport. Discovery was apparently pleased enough with the channel’s progress to buy 100% of Eurosport in July 2015, and that year, Eurosport won the exclusive rights to broadcast the Olympics in Europe from 2018-2022.

Hot Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2019: Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Limited(TEVA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    Although Allergan forecast free cash flow of $8 billion in 2016 that would allow it to “rapidly de-lever the balance sheet,” it didn’t quite work out that way. Under pressure following Valeant’s fall from grace, Allergan announced in mid-2015 it would sell Actavis’ legacy generic-drug business to Teva Pharmaceutical (NYSE:TEVA) for $40.5 billion, including $33.75 billion in cash, a move that would allow it to reduce its debt far faster than it would’ve been able to otherwise. Following that announcement, rumors began swirling that Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) wanted to acquire Allergan to capture tax savings associated with Allergan’s being domiciled in low-tax Ireland, rather than the United States, where taxes were much higher. Allergan confirmed those rumors in October and soon after announced a massive $160 billion deal that valued Allergan’s shares at $363.63 each.

    There have been more stock market pops and drops lately and that might have you wondering what healthcare stocks can be bought to take advantage of this volatility. Buying healthcare stocks during periods of volatility can be smart because demand for healthcare products and services usually isn’t discretionary. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean it makes sense to buy every healthcare stock out there.

Top Growth Stocks To Buy For 2019

Our Top Pick for conservative investors for the coming year is a company that went through a management overhaul in 2015, leaving investors uncertain about the company’s future, observes Crista Huff, editor of Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor.

Mattel (MAT) markets toys globally under the brand names Mattel, Fisher-Price, RoseArt, Barbie, AmericanGirl and many more, including strategic relationships with Disney (DIS), Google (GOOGL) and YouTube.

As a result of its prior overhaul, the stock got left in the dust. Consumer goods stocks were additionally tossed aside during the post-election stock market run-up.

That gives investors a buying opportunity in the sector’s undervalued growth stocks, including MAT.

Mattel’s earnings per share, which will finish 2016 with weak 1-2% growth (December year-end), are expected to grow 38% in 2017!

This mid-cap stock’s 2017 price/earnings ratio is 16, and the dividend yield is a huge 5.4%. Mattel typically increases the dividend about once per year.
