    MDT vs BSX

    Year ** Name ** PE ************* Year ** Name ** PE
    2013 ** BSX ** 22.50 ************ 2013 ** MDT ***13.54
    2014 ** BSX ** 19.60 ************ 2014 ** MDT ***12.62
    2015 ** BSX ** 16.76 ************ 2015 ** MDT ***11.89

    It is scary when you look at BSX. Seems a big correction in the way.

    Sentiment: Sell

    • I think your point is fair. But one metric where BSX looks better is price to sales, 1.76 for BSX versus 3.18 for MDT. That MDT can have a higher price to sales but a lower PE shows that MDT has better margins than BSX. 3x current sales for BSX would be about $17 a share. BSX will need to show some revenue growth and better margins to keep going up. This little rally that we are in may come to an end, but on the other hand the awful post GDT decline may finally be over. There really haven't been too many times since that buy that the 200 DMA has had a positive slope like we have now...

      Sentiment: Hold
