My investment management firm has a large position in the health care sector, and with AbbVie's bid for Allergan earlier this week, it's timely to review why we bought into this sector

My investment management firm’s portfolio has a large position in the health care sector, and with AbbVie’s $63 billion takeover bid for Allergan earlier this week, it’s timely to review why we bought into this sector.


Without commenting on Allergan (AGN) shares of which we own, or AbbVie (ABBV) which we do not, health care companies in general are noncyclical — health care consumption is stable and independent of the whims of the global economy. The world’s population is aging rapidly, and as people get older they consume more health care services. This creates a strong tailwind.

Investors seeking stocks to short may want to look closely at the companies in health care information technology. More than 60% of the companies in the industry are overvalued, according to a report from KPMG and Leavitt Partners.

Although the report didn’t cite companies, maybe one of candidates trading higher than warranted is Cerner Corp. (CERN).

It is hard to say anything about McKesson that we have not said before — it is a high-quality business with extremely cheap shares

It is hard to say anything about McKesson (MCK) that we have not said before — it is a high-quality business with extremely cheap shares.

The pharmaceutical distributor should earn around $15 in 2020 and will IPO its technology business, which will unlock another $20-30 of value. McKesson stock is not just cheap — it’s incredibly cheap. If we take the current $127 price and take out $25 for the technology business, we are paying about $100 for $15 of earnings — less than 7 times.
