Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Sarepta Therapeutics Inc (SRPT), Edwards Lifesciences Corp (EW): 3 Health Care Investment Ideas for June

My view is that the prospects for Sapien are still strong. Edwards certainly encountered a big bump in the road during the first quarter, but the company didn’t hit a dead end. Despite the disappointment, non-GAAP diluted earnings still jumped 35.8% year-over-year, and revenue grew by 8.2%. The recent stock drop makes Edwards’ valuation more attractive for investors in my view.

Buy in June

I like the long-term prospects for J&J, Sarepta, and Edwards looks good. However, any of these three picks could take a hit if the overall market drops. All three companies also face unique challenges in the near-term that could hold shares back. With that in mind, here’s a new adage: Buying these three investment ideas in June could make your portfolio balloon — just maybe not soon.
