Healthcare has been strong over the last 6 months. The 1st group within healthcare that really got going and didn’t give it up last year, was the device companies. The 2nd group were the service and healthcare providers. The 3rd were the Biotechs. The group that has been “hit and miss” has been big Pharma. He would prefer to focus on strength. You can get a lot of the benefit you are getting from Pharma in some of the big biotechs. You are not going to get hurt by this one, but we are in a good market, and this is one of the more underperformers. He prefers something like Amgen (AMGN-Q), which gives you a basket of great products. You could also look at Celgene (CELG-Q), or even biotech ETFs such as IBB-Q or XBI-Q.

First Quantum (FM-T) or Hudbay (HBM-T)? He tries to only focus in areas of the market that are strong technically and fundamentally. Also, he always looks for new groups of leadership to emerge. In the last few weeks, despite the fact that commodities in general have been spotty, the metals group has started to perform better. Globally, things are getting better economically, but in addition, the US$ has really taken a tumble. When that happens, it tends to be good for emerging markets and good for commodity prices. The 3 metal stocks that stand out would be Hudbay, First Quantum, and Lundin (LUN-T). All 3 look very attractive. He would be OK with all 3.

(A Top Pick July 19/16. Up 25.65%.) This has had a tremendous run. This has been a special story, but he considers what is going on in the backdrop of the restaurant group, has been a little sloppy, and would be less likely to Buy this today.

(A Top Pick July 19/16. Up 17.07%.) He would continue to buy this at today’s prices. The chemicals group as a whole is improving. Housing starts are rising smartly, and people are investing in their homes. There is still a big, big backlog of people who held off on buying homes.
