(A Top Pick October 10/17 Up 0.2%) He stepped out of this a month after they recommended it. It broke down on the relative strength measure and has not done much else since. He likes the healthcare space still however.


This is equal weighted, so you are getting a split between the big hefty diversifieds. M&A, which has been highlighted by Gilead, is definitely driving the sector now. At the same time, you are getting the basket approach of the big guys, you are incorporating the small guys as take-out targets that give you the big premium. There is a slightly softer regulatory environment where more drugs are making it to market.


He likes biotech. This ETF will be an equal weight of all the names, so you are going to get some of the smaller cap names, which will have benefited you. Thinks there is lots of growth left in this space.
