3 Quality Growth Stocks: Becton Dickinson, Pepsi and Praxair

TheStreet

Sales of diagnostic equipment - especially syringes - will continue to be hot and that will keep shares of Becton Dickinson heading higher, says Eric Schoenstein, portfolio manager for the Jensen Quality Growth Fund. Schoenstein is also bullish on Pepsi's stock, saying the soda and snack company is not letting activist investor Nelson Peltz throw it off its game as it pushes ahead with new products and expands its emerging market presence. Finally, he says industrial gas manufacturer Praxair will benefit from economic expansion in the second half of the year and that it has a "long runway" for future growth.
