Medical Equipment & Services
Kevin A. Lobo is the current CEO of Stryker Corp.
Homer Stryker was very innovative. Dr. Homer Stryker was an orthopaedic surgeon from Kalamazoo, Michigan. Some of his medical products did not meet his patients’ needs, so he invented new ones. Demand in his products sky rocketed, so Dr. Stryker started a company in 1941 to produce them. The product goals were to help patients become healthier, with more active lives with their products and services that make surgery and recovery more effective, faster, and simpler.
Stryker Corps. has been losing money for the last couple years, mainly because it has sold the same products. They have been up and down on their stock prices for years. But this spring, they will be introducing brand new products to their line, that is why it is a good stock to invest in.
