Strength Emerging in the Health-Care Sector
The health-care sector rally looks poised to continue.
Shifting Sentiment Supports Recent Health-Care Rally
Although relatively late to the upswing in the stock market, health-care stocks have recently posted solid gains. With macroeconomic health-care trends improving and uncertainty over health-care reform-related costs subsiding, we believe the investment community has gained increased confidence in the health-care sector. Furthermore, as uncertainty with the overall market's outlook increasing, the defensive nature of health care is also appealing to investors. Even with the recent health-care rally, we continue to think there are attractive investment opportunities across a number of industries in health care.
