Blue chip battle: Cochlear v. ResMed

In a fierce head to head contest (well, fiercish), Cochlear wins on quality but ResMed trumps it for value.

The healthcare sector has been the source of two of Australia’s greatest success stories. Coincidentally both stocks initially listed in 1995 and, since then, Cochlear’s shares have increased twentyfold, while ResMed is up a remarkable 54 times.

In recent times, though, the gloss has come off, with both stocks losing favour with investors. Cochlear is now down 30% since it hit $82.87 in January last year, while ResMed has fallen 20% since peaking at $5.94 in October.
