Q: As a new subscriber, Iím thoroughly impressed with your advice and 5i Research services overall - thank you for all that you do.

I currently hold ABBV, BMY, CVS, and GSK in a long-term hold, diversified RRSP portfolio. Iím not necessarily looking to add further healthcare exposure, but am very interested in the long term prospects for MRK +/- ISRG and would appreciate your opinion on them. And compared to my existing companies, would there be a suggested ranking of these six in terms of potential for long term compounding growth?
