  • The weak economy and increasing number of uninsured pushed health-care spending growth to its lowest level in decades. 
  • Health-care stocks continue to retreat because of the lack of near-term catalysts for volume growth. Health care remains among the two most undervalued sectors in the Morningstar universe.
  • Merger and acquisition activity is strong, and we expect more consolidation.
