The trail of tears does not end there for the anti-biotech crowd. Among the other 29 ETFs that are joining FBT in the all-time club today are the Health Care Select Sector SPDR (NYSEArca: XLV) and the iShares U.S. Healthcare ETF (NYSEArca: IYH). Those ETFs each devote more than 20% of their respective weights to biotech stocks.
