Let’s see here: 60% worldwide market share in Oncology-related medical devices and software + high barriers to entry and high switching costs + 10 yr avg return on capital of 30% + 10 consecutive years of EPS growth + declining share count + a price of 15.7x EV/FCF after today’s 7% drop = Another long term thumps-up in CAPs!

I think the recent pull-back provides a good entry-point for VAR. Their revenue and EPS are as solid as ever and rumor is that their managment may be expecting increased demand. Varian has been an outperformer for years and I see no reason this trend will stop anytime soon.

New top of the line product. More money pumped into health care. More people being diagnosed with cancer. Positive financial. Rock solid.

Leader is advanced cancer treatment. Good growth. High margins. Little debt. Lots of cash. Up 7 % in July. Looking for pullbacks.

Just found this one recently while checking some of the top performer picks (ten mile) and really liked what I saw - even added to my real portfolio.

This one caught my eye as I checked out tenmiles recent picks. I like what I'm finding while researching this company and I don't have any picks in the medical sector, so this seems like a good fit.

They've been unfairly puished, and will grow as their screening products are adopted in more facilities.
