What are Healthcare Stocks?

Stocks in the Healthcare sector are those related to hospital services, medical products and technologies, equipment providers, and pharmaceuticals.

In the long-term there is a reasonable case for favoring healthcare stocks - they have a strong secular view given that the need for healthcare is always rising and as economies develop healthcare availability and access tend to improve.

In the short-term, however, healthcare stocks can be vulnerable to legislative changes, success or failure of trial drugs, and so forth.
