In an earlier post, we highlighted the fact that some of the ten best performing S&P 500 Industries between the S&P 500’s highs on 4/30 and 6/20 were from the Health Care sector.  It hasn’t just been these four industries that have been strong in the Health Care sector either.  The performance snapshot of the sector below shows just how strong the sector has been lately.  While all six of the industries within the sector aren’t up YTD or so far in Q2, between the S&P 500’s highs on 4/30 and 6/20, Health Care is the only sector where every industry within the sector has posted positive returns.  Not even the industries within the Utilities sector have been this uniformly positive.  The best performer of the bunch has been Health Care Technology, which is up 8% since the end of April and has extended its YTD gain to 36.8%.  The worst performing industry in the sector has been Biotech which is up 2.1% since 4/30, and while that may not sound like much, it’s still better than more than half of the other industries in the index.
