Health-care ETFs win the week as Biden presidency affirms ObamacareHealth-care exchange-traded funds ticked down fractionally in Friday morning trading, but were still on track to be the top performing sector for the week. The Health Care Select Sector SPDR Fund gained 8.3%, the Vanguard Health Care ETF was up 8.1%, and the Fidelity MSCI Health Care Index ETF added 8%, the best week since April 9 for all three. The funds have been boosted in part by their exposure to health insurance stocks like UnitedHealth Group Inc. , which jumped more than 14% during the week, and Cigna Corp. , which was up 22.5%. Investors believe that a Biden presidency will be less likely to dismantle the Affordable Health Care Act than a Trump administration would, leaving business largely as usual for the insurers.
