Straight Talk

Quarterly Commentary - Q3 2016


Global health care stocks finished the quarter roughly flat, although biotechnology companies rebounded from early-year weakness due, in part, to acquisition activity.

The Fund outperformed its primary benchmark, largely due to its biotech holdings.

We see innovation continuing to drive the sector, and doubt that the winner of November’s elections will command a sufficient mandate to make wholesale changes to the sector.
