Eli Lilly's (LLY) earnings beat estimates in Q1. Stock falls in pre-market trading as the company lowers its full-year revenue forecast.
Health care stocks were the best sector in the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index in 2018, according to Yardeni Research. The sector's 4.7% gain last year isn't exactly eye-popping. But consider that utilities (+0.5%) were the only sector in the black, and that the index itself lost 6.2% ... and you realize just how impressive health care actually was.As we look ahead to 2019, economic storm clouds appear to be gathering. Although a recession is unlikely in the year ahead, UCLA economists estimate that GDP growth will shrink from 3% in 2018 to 2% in 2019 and finally 1% in 2020.Thus, in the potential absence of a good offense, it makes sense for investors to buy some defense in 2019. The best health care stocks can fit that bill. "Health care is a defensive growth sector that we think should have a growth upturn over the next five years or so," Saira Malik, head of global equities at Nuveen, told Fortune in November.With that in mind, here are 10 health care stocks to buy for 2019.
