Great. A Republican mid-term win should solidify this and other healthcare insurers, as there won't be the pricing pressure from the Democrats. On valuation, he prefers ELV (the old Anthem) at 6 multiple points cheaper.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly This defensive holding, UNH, is the largest managed care organization in the US, providing health care plans, pharmacy and analytics services. Recently reported earnings beat analyst expectations and support a 25% ROE. Cash reserves are growing, while stock is being repurchased. We recommend placing a stop-loss at $450, looking to achieve $590 -- upside potential of 16%. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $590.00)

BUY
Healthcare offers both growth and defence. Their valuation remains reasonable and they have pricing power. AbbVie and Merck (his favourite) are also in this group. XLV is down only 12% vs. S&P down 24%.

COMMENT
Will it be affected by a Republican majority? One of the top performers in the S&P for a number of years. Among its peers, you can find other opportunities, equally successful, with less risk from a lower multiple. No political risk either way, as 70% of Americans are happy with their healthcare. See his Top Picks.

TOP PICK
Healthcare gives you the combination of defence and offence. Largest managed care provider in the US. Medical insurance, pharma benefits, and healthcare services create a strong value proposition to its customers. This will lead to steadily and reliable sales. Last quarter, easily beat expectations and raised earnings guidance for the full year. Earnings growth should top 12% over the next few years. Yield is 1.26%, will grow over time. (Analysts’ price target is $579.00)
medical services
BUY
This one has many major components, and all are growing nicely. Growth expected at 15% this year and next. Small dividend, growing double digits. Ultimately, legislative is supportive of these companies. Great performer in a tough market. He'd buy here, great risk/reward. Though if the market recovers quickly, it may not outperform in the near term.
