Once regarded as boring and fundamentally defensive, global healthcare stocks have re-emerged over the last few years as a powerhouse for future growth. Even though the S&P 500's healthcare sector is up over 20 per cent in the past year, it continues to offer more compelling entry points than its ASX-listed counterparts.
Given the strong run experienced by healthcare stocks globally, there are few – if any – absolute bargains left to pick off. Nevertheless, when you factor in their potential future upside, they still offer more compelling valuation propositions than their Aussie healthcare stocks. We found 9 future top performers in Skaffold Global.

ResMed recently released its quarterly results. Recent changes to the US Medicare laws have meant significantly lower reimbursement rates for ResMed’s products. While this disruption in the market was anticipated and widely known, the fall in Resmed’s sales was greater than expected.
Skaffold’s founder Roger Montgomery recently shared his thoughts on ResMed’s future and suggested that investors ask themselves this important question:
“Is the issue permanent or merely a temporary one that is being treated as permanent by a bi-polar Mr Market?”

At first glance you could be forgiven for shying away from stellar performing TPG Telecom (TPM), after all the telco is not only trading at a premium to its peers but well ahead of Skaffold’s forecast intrinsic value estimates. Conventional value investing wisdom would suggest letting the stock cool its jets rather than buying in at current levels.
Revelations that TPM will go head-to-head with the NBN - hence removing the need to lease Telstra’s copper network for last mile access - was even more favourably received by the market than its better than expected $149 million full year net profit after tax (NPAT).
TPG’s share price is now at a substantial premium to Skaffold’s intrinsic value estimate. Given its positive outlook, is TPG a buy, sell or hold?

ResMed recently announced a record year for revenue and income. The fourth quarter an especially successful period for the company.
While expenses rose over the last year, this was more than offset by the increase in revenue and income.
ResMed continues to enjoy strong earnings growth and its value is currently forecast to rise over the next 2 years. The company also declared a dividend for the year, something they have not done over the last 10 years.

ResMed has been a hot topic at Skaffold lately, partly because the company recently released its third quarter results to the NYSE. Some market commenters have gone so far as to liken ResMed to Australian greats Cochlear (COH) and CSL. ResMed’s business fundamentals have shown strong performance recently, and Skaffold suggests future growth in intrinsic value of more than 16% per annum.
Whilst the market price of US$48 is well above today’s intrinsic value estimate of close to US$30, and even the 2015 estimate of circa $41.50, given RMD’s strong track record and future growth prospects, it may be a stock worth keeping an eye on in case a price correction should occur in the future.
