NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Health Care stocks have been on an impressive run to start 2013. The Affordable Care Act will provide millions of Americans with access to healthcare, creating new revenue streams for companies across the sector. Research Driven Investing examines investing opportunities in the Health Care Sector and provides equity research on HCA Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HCA) and Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC).
The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) requires every American to acquire health insurance by 2014 or be subjected to a tax. For those who can't afford health insurance they will be offered subsidies or Medicaid. Statistics from the Census Bureau show that approximately 50 million Americans did not have health insurance in 2009.
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services total health care spending is projected to grow from an estimated $2.8 trillion last year to $4.8 trillion by 2021, an increase of 70 percent. "There's just a lot more money flowing into health care and we're seeing the markets react accordingly," says Invesco portfolio manager, Derek Taner.
