These Joints Rock

Rehab from hip surgery was going well enough to spend a little time getting back to researching and writing.  Seemed appropriate that a look at companies making artificial joints would be a good way to get back in the game.

I dug a little into the future growth prospects for joint replacement surgery and briefly profiled four of the top device manufacturers.  All four looked like reasonable investments, but not all for the same reason.

Questions or comments welcome, either here or at the article.

Fool on!

Based on my 5 min analysis - both SYK and SNN are decent buys...

Both are headed 70+ I think...

 

Limit buy for SYK : 49

SNN: 45

Gotta be honest, I saw the title and thought you were smoking a lot of weed to relieve the hip pain

Glad that you are feeling better. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables so that you get all those vitamins, antioxidants, and so forth.

A weed connection didn't even occur to me.  But, hey, if it gets people to click the article...

I thought you were going to talk about some cool country honky tonks where the bands are hot, the babes are hotter and the beer is colder than my ex-wives' hearts.

Of your four picks, I'm liking SYK and ZMH on my daily charts. JNJ has already gone too far on all its other businesses (meaning, I beliveve it's fair valued or overvalued). 

I wish I had both of these charted when SYK recently announced better than expected earnings and lost over $3.00 that day. (Oct. 16).

 I'll probably pick up a half-position of ZMH tomorrow, and then, if it breaks 53.00, I'll add another half. I'll keep a tight stop/loss at 50.50 at this moment and raise it daily.

 I would look for a 15% rise very quickly from tomorrow's entry price...
