You can see the way MDT trades vs EW that the market favors MDT so far
EW clearly has the better technology but MDT has the money, size, reach, sales force and lobbyist's to dominate in the future UNLESS EW management gets more aggressive. They need a partner to compete long term or bulk up with more products to increase FCF and grow the sales force.
First, using the "Basic Chart" with "Max", "Linear" clicked on, get the basic chart for EW.
Second, enter MDT in the compare window.
You will see EW stock price appreciation massively exceeds that of MDT.
In any case, both look like buys to me with a high probability EW will be the target of a takeover.
