These are some of the best ETFs for playing healthcare depending on what strategy you like. These cover global, covered call, yield focused, or actively managed ETFs in the market. The sector is a little overvalued right now so you might want to wait for a pullback. Longterm outlook is favourable.

(A Top Pick May 29/19, Up 18%) He got back into healthcare late last year because of speculation about a Bernie Sanders victory. He continues to like it long term. The current price is a bit elevated so if buying it, wait a bit. The US election could changes things for healthcare.

US Health ETF. We are in a state where we have aging demographics. The healthcare industry is one of the more recession-proof industries. He would suggest unhedged, however.

(A Top Pick May 29/19, Up 4%) He prefers owning a basket of diversified, global healthcare stocks, not just Canada. XHC is hedged, so there's no currency risk. He owns it for these two reasons.

Pullback due to concerns the democratic left will win the election is actually an opportunity to come back into healthcare. Healthcare is always a long-term play. Yield is 1.6%.

They like the Canadian hedging. He can play healthcare this way and not take on the product risk. It broke out earlier in the year and now is breaking out again.

Healthcare ETF. Playing the global healthcare space. BMO has one with a currency hedge on it. Thinks Healthcare will be a good bet for the next 20-30 years. You have to look at what is in them. Pharma vs. Biotech are different stories. This one is mostly large Pharma, which has its challenges. Should be bought about $30 where there is good support.

This whole healthcare space is something that you want to own. He owns the iShares US healthcare (IYH-N) which owns all the large US healthcare names. Continues to move along at a very nice clip.

This is a global basket of health care stocks. Chart shows a little bit of a correction that took place in the early part of the year. Had a strong run at the beginning of the year which is very unusual for healthcare. There has been a pull back which is fine because it did so well earlier on. It is now getting back close to the top. We are into the seasonal period for healthcare, which is in August. We are just a few weeks away from that so this is an attractive sector.

There is no top in sight for this one. It just works higher. Anything related to this space has legs.

Health Care Sector. Likes it in general, long term. It will have volatility. If we get a correction, wait for it to come to $25. A nice stable place to get a yield from.

Doesn’t know this one specifically but for healthcare, there are a couple of them such as BMO EqWt US HthCare Hedged CAD (ZUH-T) and iShares Global Healthcare (IXJ-N). Global ones tend to be big Pharma and usually a little bit of biotech.

Thinly traded but the market maker has a lot up there in Bid & Ask so liquidity is really not an issue when it comes to ETF’s. Have been some pretty good movement in the global health care stocks. This one has been attractive and people have been pumping money into them on market downturns based on commodity prices being pounded. He is not big on healthcare right now and you’ve had a pretty good move on this one and feels there are other areas with more value.
