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.

Seek Limited (SEK) has ended the 2013 financial year with more than $184 million cash in bank, improving the quality of its balance sheet and lifting its Skaffold Quality Score from B to A. Unfortunately the increase in total shareholders equity, coupled with higher debt, did not result in a material uplift in NPAT and SEK’s return on equity fell from close to 40% in 2012 to 24%, as at 30 June 2013. SEK is now rated A2 by Skaffold.
Companies to report improving business performance over the last six months include vitamin developer Blackmores (BKL), wealth management business SFG Australia (SFW), software developers Objective Corporation (OCL) and Prophecy International Holdings (PRO).
