Q: Two part question, deduct as many points as you like.

I'm just wondering if anyone at 5I has glanced at the 195 page(!!) short report that Spruce Point put out last week on Stryker. Anything in particular to be concerned about? I own it in my RRSP, and have been slowly adding to my position. It is the only stock that I own in the health care sector.

Also, what would be your top pick, CA or US in this sector, if I wanted to diversify my portfolio?

Thank you for all that you do.

Q: Which would you choose if only one were to be added to a portfolio? I have owned SYK and know it to be a relatively steady-eddy company but one that has had some solid growth over the years. ISRG showed very promising stock appreciation but that has certainly cooled off over the past several months. Which do you feel has the better total upside over the next 5 years?

Appreciate your insight.

Q: Hi Peter and Staff

Looking at my health care basket, I have a couple of losers in it VEEV and VTRS.

I have had losers I regretted selling and losers I wish I had not wasted opportunity cost on.......I am fine doing either....Do you think the risk/reward of selling either or both of these to top up ABBV,PFE,SYK or JNJ would be a good move in the long run ignoring how many positions I have or should I hang on. If a sale is suggested which order would you top up the 4 stocks mentioned.

Thanks for all you do

I'm looking to buy 4 or 5 US medical stocks for a long-term hold (5+ years) with an above-average level of risk tolerance.

Could you please rank the stocks I've listed, and indicate if there are better choices.

Thank you!

Q: Hi Peter and team,
While Becton Dickinson and Stryker seem to have a lot in common (medical supplies, joint replacement, etc.) their performance has deviated greatly in recent years; (over the past year, less than 1% gain for BDX but almost 12% for SYK). The one I own (naturally) is BDX, which also has a lower P/E and a higher dividend. Two questions: (i) any idea why BDX has underperformed SYK so much; (ii) would you sell, hold on, or buy more of what many analysts say is a well-run company in a demographically promising business?
