  1. Their has been so very much negative news surrounding any stocks involved in healthcare over the last ten years rarly do you hear anything positive about anything in healthcare arena. That being said healthcare will continue to expand faster than the over all economy. So I believe that many of the stocks being talked about above will become more attractive as time goes by.
