Local company that has continued to grow for over a decade. I remember a conversation with my dad years ago talking about this company and it has doubled since that time. Plus you gotta go with a company from the Mitten state.

This is one of the last few independent implant/medical device companies. They seem to be doing very well for a company that didn't have to join forces with anyone else. My guess is eventually they will be acquired by someone but until then they will continue to outperform.

I decided to move off of the energy stocks this week and pick a medical device/equipment/neurovascular innovator, Stryker Corporation (NYSE: SYK). Besides being a homie (headquartered in Michigan), you will likely see it's products in any hospital you visit. Full disclosure, I own Stryker and have for years. However recently, the price declined due to Congressional rabble rousing and the fear of litigation due to implants. It's acquisition strategy has helped it keep its market share. The recent acquisition of Trausin Company maintains its foothold in the China market. Due to the recent volatility of the market, and the avoidance of anything related to China or medical technology, this pick is a let's see what happens pick.
