Market Insights

Andy Acker discusses what opportunities he’s seeing in the health care sector

Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2014


Strong returns in managed health care led to gains for the sector, while broader indices rose in the fourth quarter.

Our selection of biotechnology stocks drove the Fund’s relative performance.

OvaScience, Celgene and NPS Pharmaceuticals led our individual contributors.

In many cases, stock gains have been driven by fundamental improvements, such as profit growth, innovative drugs advancing and more insured patients gaining access to health care.
