AmerisourceBergen185 Lean n Mean: 10 of Wall Street’s Most Efficient StocksSector: Healthcare

AmerisourceBergen (NYSE:ABC) isn’t a household name, since it’s a behind-the-scenes pharmaceutical company that helps with the distribution and services of medications instead of the research of life-saving drugs. However, this difference actually is a huge plus since it means little research overhead and no risk of patent expirations — but a huge built-in demand as companies and patients all need help with their prescriptions. The recipe adds up to stunning $7.19 billion in revenue per employee for this healthcare service stock.

That’s a runaway winner, but if you want a company that actually is in the business of selling products, consider biopharmaceutical stock Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD) with revenue upwards of $2 million annually per employee.
