With earnings season kicking into high gear, the week of July 16 to July
20 promises a little more action for investors. Although healthcare
earnings reports don't tend to spur the same sort of volatile trading
action as tech earnings, investors will be keenly interested in what
major companies like Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), Stryker (NYSE:SYK) and St. Jude (NYSE:STJ) have to say about volume and pricing trends in healthcare.
