There are better opportunities. It is in a tough space. It is probably not a good market in which to hold stocks that face challenges. All countries are putting pressure on drug prices.

(A Top Pick Sept 20/16. Up 43%.) He continues to like the US healthcare sector. In the US, if over 65 years of age, you spend 3X as much on healthcare as under the age of 65. This company doesn’t have much exposure to the Affordable Care Act and is well positioned to benefit from those trends.

(Top Pick Aug 17/16, Up 39.68%) A US based health insurance company. The news was that last year Anthem had made an offer for them, but he thought the takeover would not go through. There is a large break fee for the deal not going through. He thinks going forward they will buy back stock, invest and raise their dividend. It is another well run story.

A US health insurer provider, one of the largest. There is a pending deal. Aetna (AET-N) (?) wants to buy the company, and it is unlikely that deal gets approved. If the deal doesn’t get approved, the break fee is about $1.5 billion. On top of that, when you look at the cash they can deploy, they are going to have about $10 billion to play with. They can buy back a ton of stock if the deal does not go through. If it does go through, you still get 30% upside. Dividend yield of .03%.

Do the benefits programs for a lot of small and medium sized businesses and individuals and will benefit from Obama care. It has traded off from fear that businesses would have to now insure all their employees.
