    Stryker (NYSE:SYK) had its hold rating reissued by analysts at Needham & Company LLC. The analysts wrote, “SYK is acquiring Invuity (IVTY) for $7.40 per share (a 29% premium) or ~$190M of cash which is 3.4x consensus 2019E sales (vs. 6.4x EV/2019E sales for its medical supplies peers). IVTY makes disposable lighted instruments which increase visibility during minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedures. We believe IVTY fits well with SYK’s Instruments business and note that IVTY’s products are applicable to a large number of surgical procedures. While the deal may be slightly dilutive in 2019, we believe that SYK can absorb this and still deliver on its 9%+ EPS growth target. And the deal should start to become increasingly accretive in 2020 and beyond.””

Top Bank Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Investors often get hung up on the wrong questions. Should I buy more Apple stock? Should I sell this dog of a mutual fund? How will the Fed impact my bond fund this month? These questions can be important. But they pale in comparison to the most significant question for your portfolio: How much risk should I take?

One stock pick or mutual fund isn&a;rsquo;t likely to make or break your retirement, but how much risk you take in your portfolio can easily be a game changer. That&a;rsquo;s why it is essential that your financial advisor focus a significant amount of time at the start of every client relationship on the question of risk.

Imagine a couple with spectacularly bad timing. They invested $1,000,000 in a 100% US stock portfolio, the Vanguard 500 Index Fund (Ticker:&a;nbsp;VFINX),&a;nbsp;at the start of October of 2007. By February of 2009, their portfolio would have been worth $498,049. If they had the intestinal fortitude (financially and emotionally) to sit tight and not sell any of the fund after this remarkable decline, they would have broken even on their original investment in March of 2012.

(NYSE: PHM) is scheduled to report  Q1 results Tuesday, and D.R. Horton Inc (NYSE: DHI) is scheduled to report fiscal Q2 numbers on Thursday. The industry already has seen strong Q1 results from Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN), and housing starts and building permits in March rose more than expected. These results, as well as those and the economic data from next week could provide clues for the industry going forward. After NVR, Inc. (NYSE: NVR) reports results this morning, Meritage Homes Corp. (NYSE: MTH) releases its Q1 results April 25. We’ll have to wait until next month for some of the other homebuilders, as well as from home improvement companies Home Depot, Inc.
