Chart Watchlist - Health

The healthcare sector is my second favorite. The sector offers decent returns with lower volatility. With the growing aging population in the United States and the rise in medical costs, healthcare companies are in a decent position to profit.

Favorite list: JNJ, BDX, ABT, MDT, BCR, SYK
