CORAL GABLES, FL / ACCESSWIRE / February 27, 2019 / The success of the healthcare stock market is more nuanced than any other industry-related market because it is dependent on improving the quality of life for consumers. While industries like tech and auto develop innovative technologies for consumers, by and large, people can survive without their devices and their cars, but our health supersedes all else. The unrivaled importance of the healthcare sector comes with the expectation that companies working in the space are prepared to meet the growing demands of patients suffering from a multitude of diseases. If healthcare companies continue to provide the best quality care for their patients, this may, in turn, spark investor excitement. Premier Health Group (OTC:PHGRF) (CSE:PHGI), Midatech Pharma plc (MTP), Biocept Inc (BIOC), and Summit Therapeutics plc (SMMT) represent 4 healthcare stocks to keep tabs on this week.
