cannibalism?????

So I am thinking about buying a Healthcare ETF (like XLV) to fund my future health insurance costs.

Thoughts?

Not unusual. T pays my phone bill, utility stocks pay my electric, health related stocks can pay a nice dividend.

I wish I could better predict the future profits of the health care industry in this country for investment purposes. What people think is so deeply affected by their political leanings, that I think we won't really know until some time has passed.

Health Care industry will be affected by increased demand, resulting from the new laws. Demand goes up, so do prices, so I expect the government to try to implement measures designed to limit costs. Every time the government does this, the market for the product becomes less predictable and more irrational. good luck!
