best performing healthcare ETFs today
One sector that has performed well over the long-term has been the healthcare sector. A quick overview of the sector and it is easy to see why. Take the aging of the baby boom population and couple that with massive innovation (e.g. genomics, stem cells, immunotherapy, 3D printing, bionics, robotics, sensors, etc. -- the list is long). Determining precisely which innovation and which company will be successful (while advoiding the inevitable failures) can be a challenge. That's where the diversification of healthcare ETFs can help. Keep in mind that this sector includes general healthcare ETFs in addition to ETFs that are targeted to biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices.

The following table lists the 30 best performing healthcare exchange-traded funds. The table
includes and can be sorted on: ETF ticker symbol, ETF name, fund orientation, and one-day gain rank as well as the healthcare ETF's one-day, one-month, and 12-month percent change. For summary statistics of these 30 best performing healthcare ETFs today as well as how they compare to the S&P 500, simply scroll down to view the summary table. This table is updated every day after the close.

FYI -- Orientation refers to the degree of the exchange-traded fund's leverage in addition to whether or not the ETF is an inverse fund. For example, a 2x ETF that tracks the S&P 500 will show a gain of 2% if the S&P 500 is up 1%. A -2x ETF that tracks the S&P 500 will show a loss of 2% if the S&P 500 is up 1%. The following table includes both leveraged and inverse ETFs.
