Quarter-End Insights

Our Outlook for Health-Care Stocks

While we remain bullish on the sector, health-care growth depends on the economy.

Mentioned: , , , , , , , , ,
  • Although office visits remain weak, we've had two quarters in a row of strong sequential growth in personal health expenditures. Improving unemployment should provide further tailwinds.  
  • Supercommittee's failure to resolve deficit debate will result in automatic across-the-board budget cuts, affecting a broad spectrum of industries within health care.
  • Share buybacks will likely bolster earnings growth.
