Healthcare and technology are the two leading groups. At this point you have to own healthcare. They have traded at a discount over the last 18 months. With all they have done going through this crisis, healthcare cuts are off the table. He owns a lot of healthcare names directly.

He thinks the drivers behind the healthcare sector are as powerful today as they were 6 months ago. However, the environment has been changing, where you need to be more of an active manager, understanding which asset mix makes sense. This is a passive ETF, so you are subject to the whims of the largest names. You should have exposure to the sector, but try to identify something that is more actively managed.

(A Top Pick July 3/15. Down 2.08%.) Sold about 2 months after he had picked it. Didn’t like what was happening in the US elections. Will probably look at getting back into a name like this in November.

As we get closer to the US elections, this is probably a good time to start building a position.

A sleeping giant that he has had in his portfolio for a long time. He recommends that you read Byron Wien’s piece about innovation, biotech, healthcare. This ETF has great holdings. 40% exposure to pharmaceuticals, 25% exposure to the biotech sector, a well-rounded portfolio of names. In the past, these names have been thought of as a defensive kind of positioning, but feels they have slowly moved into the growthy areas of the markets, with huge innovations in medical and biotech. In a rising rate environment, if you are looking for something that is defensive but participates with a bit of growth, this might be a really attractive place to hide out.

For the last decade investors have been thinking about healthcare and talking about demographics. For a long time healthcare companies in North America didn’t do much, but that really changed in the last 1.5-2 years. Thinks this is the beginning of a longer-term trend, and we will see continued growth in the healthcare industry. For a long-term proposition, this is not a bad place to be.

Healthcare tends to be a little less correlated to the equity market, so it is an ideal place to be. We are approaching the seasonal strength for biotech at the end of June. The chart on this is showing higher lows and higher highs. A similar one, but hedged to the Cdn$, would be BMO Equal Weight US Healthcare (ZUH-T). (See Top Picks.)

This has big holdings in things like Johnson & Johnson (JNJ-N), Pfizer (PFE-N), Merck (MRK-N), etc. Has done very well year to date.

Likes this area. Going forward, it will be a defensive space. Broke out past its previous resistance point. If you own, Hold. You could add to that on pullbacks.

Have liked the sector for quite awhile. Has outperformed the S & P 500 since the beginning of the year. Very heavily weighted to large pharma. Short term there's a little bit of a risk, but long term, it's a place you want to have exposure to.
