There are non-traditional companies that will participate in this market, but it will be important for those companies and health care companies to work together.  Health care companies cannot be underestimated for their knowhow and history with patients and doctors.

In this Q&A, Alger Analyst Matthew Margolis discusses how rapid innovations and disruptions created by health care and technology partnerships are creating investment opportunities.

Key Points
  • Working together, health care companies and technology providers are changing how doctors treat patients, while reducing health care inflation. 

  • Innovations in standardizing patient data could result in a decline of catastrophic events, such as cardiac arrest.

  • An increased focus on wellness and preventative care may change how doctors interact with patient.

Investing in the stock market involves gains and losses and may not be suitable for all investors.  Growth stocks tend to be more volatile than other stocks as the prices of growth stocks tend to be higher in relation to their companies’ earnings and may be more sensitive to market, political, and economic developments.  Investing in companies in the health sciences sector may be more volatile than similar strategies that do not have concentrated investments. Furthermore, because many of industries in the health sciences sector are subject to substantial government regulations, changes in applicable regulations could adversely affect companies in those industries. In addition, the comparative rapidity of product development and technological advancements in many areas of the sector may be reflected in greater volatility of the stock of companies operating in those areas.
