Companies with a strong competitive advantage can share a few distinguishing characteristics: advanced technology, market dominance within sectors with high barriers to entry, scalability, great prospects for sales and profits, untapped global target markets, top management.
As a smart investor it’s your job to identify companies with a competitive advantage that’s sufficiently sustainable. That means it won’t ‘crash and burn’, leaving you with a potential value-trap with all its best days behind it.

Healthcare represents less than one per cent of the ASX, one of the world’s most dynamic growth sectors.
That’s why most Aussie healthcare stocks trade at what’s known as a ‘scarcity premium’.
Encompassing healthcare facilities, drug and biotechnology stocks, and medical equipment suppliers and manufacturers, the overall quality and performance of Australian healthcare stocks is impressive. Half of the top 10 achieved Skaffold’s preferred stock ratings of A1, A2, B1 and B2 based on their latest financial reports.
Despite a recent sell off, which has seen share prices of the top 10 fall, on average, 3% since late February, safety margins continue to be high, ranging between -15 and -75 per cent.
With the ‘scarcity premium’ enshrouding local healthcare stocks, we went in search of better healthcare value stocks offshore and found 6 standouts.

It’s not rocket science. If you invest in the US and the A$ falls 10 per cent against the greenback, you’ll receive an extra 10 per cent return when you eventually bring your money home. The same can also be said for those investing locally in stocks that derive a good chunk of their income from foreign earnings.
Established healthcare businesses, many of which have substantial operations outside Australia, like CSL Ltd, and consumer discretionary stocks benefit from a weaker Aussie dollar, due partly to segmented pricing which makes local retailers more competitive relative to overseas online stores.
As a rule of thumb, a 10 per cent drop in the A$ adds around 3 per cent to corporate earnings.
To determine the A$ impact on earnings, find out the percentage of profits generated from the company’s international operations and apply the change in currency to this proportion of profits.

The Australian dollar dipped below US92¢ on June 24 – its lowest point since September 2010 – and mounting projections that it could fall to around US85¢ within two years heralds mixed blessings for stocks on either side of the currency divide.
So if you subscribe to the view that a falling Australian dollar is (among other things) the inevitable by-product of waning foreign investor appetite for $A assets, you also need to ask what this means for the stocks you currently own, and how you can profit from it.
The correlation between the Australian dollar and share price movements – and interest rates, for that matter – has declined somewhat in recent years. Nevertheless, when it comes to identifying the most likely winners and losers within a falling Australian dollar environment, there are some useful guiding principles that you as an investor should understand.
