4 ways to trade the cancelled healthcare vote

After the vote to repeal and replace Obamacare was stopped in its tracks Friday , the "Fast Money" traders discussed how to play the market.

Trader David Seaburg said he likes the SPDR S&P Biotech ETF (NYSE Arca: XBI). He said he is betting on mergers and acquisitions to pick up in the small and mid-cap space and drug pricing issues will fall by the wayside.

Trader Mike Khouw said he likes United Health Group (NYSE: UNH) after the company doubled its revenue and earning per share since 2010 and has performed well under Obamacare.

Trader Steve Grasso said he likes "HMOs for the long haul" and said the area will benefit from tax reform.

Trader Dan Nathan said he prefers big-cap pharmaceutical and biotechnology names in the Health Care Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSE Arca: XLV)and the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (NASDAQ: IBB).

Trader Guy Adami said he likes the iShares 20+ Yr Treasury Bond ETF (NASDAQ: TLT) because the healthcare reform struggle may have put a "handicap" on tax reform and if that fails a chain of events will lead the stock to rally.
