Emerging Markets Health Care -- A Unique Challenge

Our health care roundtable gathers the Motley Fool's top health care analysts to discuss the sector's biggest stories in a free flowing and highly opinionated format.

In this portion of the video, the guys discuss one of Johnson & Johnson's (NYSE: JNJ  ) major acquisitions in the medical devices space and whether it was a good idea considering that the company has seen some slowdown in that area. They discuss the huge potential with rapidly growing emerging markets and the difficulty in tapping those markets when the people there simply don't have as much money to spend.

In the world of health care, companies simply don't come any bigger than Johnson & Johnson. Many own the stock, but few understand its story.

Is this true, or is J&J a well-diversified giant that's perfect for your portfolio?
