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.
