Health Care is expensive, but it is also profitable.

See link below for more information.

As I get older, health care is getting more expensive and I am finding myself at the Dean Clinic far more often than I would like to be there. I like FHLC as an investment, especially for the UTMA accounts for my grandchildren. It has a low expense ratio of 0.08% and a decent dividend yield of 2.02%. The turnover is 8.00%, which is good. I don’t like portfolio churn. FHLC also has a decent base of assets: 1.61B. But FHLC isn’t the only game in town. Here are some others to consider:

When it comes to health care, think long term. Don’t let today’s news or tomorrow’s scary headlines take you off course.
