In an industry that has little free cash flow and generally have a hard time paying their current costs, this company is a winner with FCF and a quick ration of 1.90. Besides that, it is in the health care sector!

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

Stagnant top-line growth, plus some product liability issues, against the backdrop of a stock up 20% over the past year -- which sounds good but is itself underperforming the S&P 500. I'll expect that to continue over the next year. Overall, an impressive company and one I wouldn't bet against long term. But I also like to get some red thumbs in my mostly green scorecard.

Thanks to my SA research team for their background work. Underperform.

Low debt, high profit margins for the industry (just under 20%) and a nice steady increase in Total Cash from Operations down through the years. Operating expenses have also risen over the same period, but not as much indicating that management have a good handle on things. I think the impact of the Obama plan is already built into the current price, so I don't expect a lift from that.

One of the 52 S&P500 Dividend Aristocrats. Competitors include BAX and BSX. At 70$ BCR is not that cheap at all, but it's a quality company, which will do well in the long run and for the short term, when the current April bull run is over.
