Hot Medical Stocks To Own Right Now

Cooper Companies (NYSE:COO) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “buy” rating in a research note issued on Friday. The firm currently has a $317.00 price target on the medical device company’s stock. Zacks Investment Research‘s price objective points to a potential upside of 10.03% from the stock’s previous close.

According to Zacks, “Cooper Companies exited the fiscal first quarter on a strong note, issuing a solid guidance for fiscal 2019. Also, the company saw solid gains from its core CVI unit, which performed impressively in the United States, the EMEA and the Asia Pacific. These apart, Cooper Companies continues to gain from the PARAGARD acquisition, which has been consistently driving CSI’s performance. Management is also optimistic about the Clarity, MyDay and Biofinity suite of products. The company’s portfolio of daily silicone hydrogel lenses makes it one of the stalwarts in the soft contact lens market. The company outperformed its industry in a year’s time. On the flip side, Cooper Companies’ soft genomics business in recent past is concerning. Gross margin at CVI unit was below management’s expectations. Moreover, a series of acquisitions pose significant integration risks. Stiff competition in the MedTech space is a woe.”

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Own For 2019

What’s particularly interesting about the alliance of Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN), JP Morgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) and Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A, NYSE:BRK.B) is its relationship to business basics.

Despite various efforts, the healthcare costs in the U.S. continue to grow. According to the CMS, the spending is forecasted to go from $3.5 trillion in 2017 to $5.7 trillion in 2026. There are many reasons for this: fraud, waste, complex regulations, special interests, just to name a few.

Yet the fact is that many businesses are feeling the pressures. For the most part, the growth trends somehow need to be muted. At the same time, there needs to be more of a focus on quality outcomes.

The Amazon, JPM Berkshire group pools together a workforce of over 1.2 million. And yes, these companies have some of the world’s best business leaders: Jeff Bezos, Jamie Dimon and Warren Buffett. They have all had transformative impacts on society.

Basically, it seems like a pretty good bet that they should be able to come up with a compelling strategy.
