Innovative Healthcare Business Model Yields Big Profits
Investors are focusing on the healthcare sector, for a simple reason: “It's a high-growth sector that can deliver massive returns,” reports The Motley Fool, a financial investment advisory. But in a climate of radical disruption of traditional business models and ongoing uncertain policies going forward, making smart investment choices is a dicey job. One of the stocks selected by The Motley Fool as a top pick, LeMaitre, a medical device company, displays a winning business strategy: “Each year the company adds a few new sales reps, pushes through price increases, expands geographically, and rolls out new products. This is combined with margin improvements and occasional share buybacks.” The bottom line? "LaMaitre's profits have grown in excess of 46% annually over the last five years." Those looking for an innovative business model in the health sector, either for investment purposes or for emulation, take note.
