Dan Loeb, Third Point Making Moves Last Quarter: Abbott Laboratories (ABT), Electronic Arts Inc. (EA)

Generally speaking, sentiment on this particular segment of healthcare is mixed, though it’s interesting to note that each member of this trio has gained at least 4.5% year-to-date.

At a 4.4% yield, AbbVie pays the highest dividend in S&P 500’s entire healthcare sector, and Abbott offers a much more modest yield of 1.6%. Ariad, meanwhile, is not attractive for income-seeking investors, though Loeb has held the stock since the second quarter of last year. Wall Street’s average price target on Ariad represents an upside of more than 40%, though “monkeys” may be best off by considering all three of these biotech stocks in tandem.
