Ouch! My health care fund is stinging!

April 23, 2019

What do you think about the long term potential for investing in health care stocks?  Right now health care funds are taking a bit of a bruising.  There are some political rumblings causing pain in the sector so it's important to remember why you might include health care in your portfolio.  If you have an investment in health care funds, it should be part of an overarching strategy based on the principles of asset allocation and diversification.

Here are some thoughts to consider when investing in health care: 

  • Are the sectors in your portfolio thoughtfully planned as part of your asset allocation?
  • Do you invest for the long term
  • Are you well diversified, especially in specialized sectors like health care?

I am happy to talk to your about the importance of investing in alignment with your objectives and risk tolerance.  Let's discuss your goals and how a well diversified portfolio could help you get there!

A diversified portfolio does not assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market.
