Every New York stock exchange trading day I’m posting a daily dividend stock or fund review. I’ll share the three chief qualities of just one equity or fund that could be selected for a dividend stock portfolio I’ve named the Safari to Sweet Success.

This week my Safari portfolio is open to a company from the Healthcare sector. 

The Healthcare sector includes ten industries all related to testing, diagnosing and treating what ails us. The healthcare industries are: biotechnology; diagnostics & research; drug manufacturers – major and- specialty & generic; healthcare plans; long-term care facilities; medical care; medical devices, medical distribution; medical supplies.

Today I’m reviewing a drug manufacturer – major. It’s a large-cap stock, Bayer Aktiengesellschaft. Its trading ticker symbol is BAYRY. 

Bayer AG is active in the German healthcare sector. Healthcare provides close to half of the company’s sales and includes pharmaceutical drugs as well as vitamins and animal health products.

A Crop Science segment offers crop protection products, seeds, non-agriculture pest control products. The Animal Health segment develops and markets products and solutions for the prevention and treatment of disease in companion and farm animals to vets, farmers, and pet-owners. 

The company was founded in 1863 and is headquartered in Leverkusen, Germany.
