Stocks in Healthcare

Companies in the Healthcare sector are mostly pharmaceutical companies which make and sell drugs. Other companies perform biotechology and produce and sell medical equipment. One huge source of volatility in this sector is FDA approval of drugs. Another is the patent protection for new drugs.

Every stock sector groups stocks related by a particular type of industry. This allows you to compare businesses of similar types. For example, stocks of mining companies are more similar than they are to stocks of financial companies. Even though there are differences between companies within a sector, the performance of a stock relative to its sector as a whole can give you interesting information.

Based on our research, these stocks we track in the Healthcare stock sector have these value investing characteristics. If you have an interest in this sector or special knowledge about it, you can use this table to find stocks which may be great values—stocks you may wish to own.
