IS HEALTH CARE THE ULTIMATE HEDGE?
Heath care companies have gained a lot of attention in the last year since Obama-Care (formally called the Affordable Care Act) cranked into full gear in the US. This new legislature is designed to allow (force) all Americans to have some form of health insurance, regardless of age, employment, or previous illnesses. I get a lot of questions about health care and health care stocks. The most popular tend to be:
1. What is the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and what are its impacts on Americans?
2. How has the ACA impacted the health care sector?
3. What is the best way to trade this, if at all?
