For the past several years, healthcare has been a hot topic of debate. Regardless of whether or not you agree with the Affordable Care Act, your opinion should hold little say in how you play the healthcare stocks in the near future. Despite the controversy over Obamacare, healthcare stocks are playing out to be excellent investments.
With medicine advancing at an astronomical pace, there are many ways to play healthcare stocks. The first way is to invest in the well-known companies like Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) which provide a stable investment with decent growth and consistent dividends. The next way to play healthcare stocks is through stocks which offer high potential like Illumina (NADAQ:ILMN), a company that researches genetic functioning. Finally, ETFs like Health Care SPDR (NYSEARCA:XLV) and mutual funds like Fidelity Select Health Care (MUTF:FSPHX) offer limited exposure while still being involved in healthcare.
