Healthcare Business Recap: Health Stocks To Be Affected By Income Squeezes

Political changes are not likely to affect the fact that healthcare stocks might experience some income squeezes in the next few years, but still there are bargains out there, if investors pay attention to which companies are healthcare’s overall cost-cutters, and also to valuation. Firms that pay dividends, such as Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE) and Merck & Co., Inc. (NYSE:MRK) already reflect the looming cost pressure in their shares, and innovator companies like Varian Medical Systems, Inc. (NYSE:VAR) or Perrigo Company (NASDAQ:PRGO) are at cheaper valuations than are firms such as Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (NASDAQ:ISRG).
