Lots of rhetoric around pharma around election time, but not a lot gets changed. An equal weight ETF. Hasn't done well. Prefers Vanguard's VHT in the US, cheaper and a market weighted strategy with Pfizer, Merck, and Abbott Labs.

This is in an incredibly strong trend, so be careful of the entry point. Healthcare might give a little more opportunity like the IYH-N ETF or an equal weight XLV-N ETF.

We have a base. It was beat up by Hillary Clinton. The sector is in a secular bull market, however. This is a good place to get your initial allocation. We come into a seasonal period soon. There is decent value.

(A Top Pick Aug 10/16. Down 12.87%.) This has been frustrating with controversies and the possibility of a Clinton presidency. Now all of that has come off, and this has gapped higher from a depressed level. It is now testing that gap support at around $39. If it can hold that, there might actually be a play here. If you own this, continue to hold as there might be some good things happening.

Which stocks for RESP and University in 8 years? He would use healthcares such as SPDR Health Care (XLV-N) or SPDR Pharma (XPH-N). These are in a secular bull market. You could also use Van Eck Vectors Biotech (BBH-Q). This gives you a little bit of mix of all 3 sectors. He would suggest 40% and 40% on the first 2 and maybe 20% in the Biotechs.

Pharmaceuticals tend to do well from right about now through to the end of the year. He had read where Obama care would be injecting $10 billion-$35 billion in additional profits into the pharmaceutical industry over the next 10 years.
