The U.S. healthcare sector is growing faster than the rest of the economy. Growth in the sector is being propelled by technological advances, an aging population and improving treatments for chronic diseases and conditions. Health spending accounted for almost 18% of U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) at the end of 2019, and it’s expected to top $6 trillion annually by 2028. (1)
The healthcare sector is so broad that there are several different kinds of healthcare stocks. Four of the most important types include drug stocks, medical device stocks, payer stocks and health care provider stocks. Strong companies can be found within each type of healthcare stock including Vertex Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:VRTX), Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG), Novocure (NASDAQ:NVCR), UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH), and Teladoc Health (NYSE:TDOC), UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Pfizer Inc (PFE), Roche Holding AG (RHHBY), Merck & Co Inc (MRK), Abbott Laboratories (ABT)

Net loss for the quarter ended July 31, 2022 was $4,056,632, as compared to a much higher loss of $27,008,896 for the same period of the prior year, largely due to a $12,324,999 provision for consideration paid in excess of net liabilities acquired from acquisitions and impairment of goodwill of $8,905,830. Total assets at July 31, 2022 decreased by 21.5% to $17,217,108 from $21,921,195 at July 31, 2021, which was mainly attributable to a decreased in cash and cash equivalents.
