ZBH has been a target watch company for several weeks. A review in SA this week colored the picture with some more detail … especially on the management effectiveness and competitive landscape. MDT is also on my watch list and JNJ is a core holding that i would build at right value entry.
For now, my focus will be on MDT and JNJ … update forthcoming
Technology Sector continues on and future earnings forecasts promise more of the same … i think that one of the questions people are not asking strongly enough is the following … are these promises of increased revenue best characterized as: a) organic demand growth, b) repurpose investment (e.g., people to robots), or c) market segment share conquests? How you answer this changes the way to look at possible investments or trades http://fundamentalis.com/?p=7148

The 10-year inflation-protected bond still yields you a measly 0.4%. A few years ago, I ran some numbers and said that the stock market does well until TIPs yield 2.4%. That shows you how much room we have. Of course, five years ago, 10-year TIPs were yielding -0.90%.
