This Leveraged Health Care ETF is the 'CURE' for Late Market Cycle Blues

With those improvements in technology and the price of health care equities relative to value propositions, health care could lead the sectors when a market correction eventually takes place.

“Healthcare really is giving investors a lot of bang for its buck right now,” said Martin Jarzebowski, healthcare sector head at Federated Investors.

As such, a health care ETF like CURE can also be used as a defensive play in addition to a short-term profit tool. As the bull run gets longer in the tooth, health care can serve as a safe-haven sector for investors cycling out of their growth-oriented investments.

“The later we get in the cycle, our enthusiasm for healthcare has only picked up,” Lafferty said.

CURE has returned 32.22% year-to-date and almost 40% within the past 12 months.
