It is less likely that Santa alone will drive Wall Street this season as trade tensions persist. Overall, these ETF investing trends should stay strong.

Biotechnology stocks have been outperforming over the past month, but ETF investors seem disinterested and are even trimming exposure to this sector. In a weekly update on the flow of money in and out of stock funds, PiperJaffray analyst Christopher J. Raymond pointed out that investors pulled a net $99 million out of healthcare and biotech-related funds in the one-week period ended on Wednesday, Barron's reports. The latest redemptions seems surprising given the recent outperformance of the biotechnology sector.
The healthcare sector, which has been the second-worst performer among the 11 major S&P 500 sectors this year, took the center stage this month with some outperformance compared to other sectors.
Kevin Cook joins us to help walk us through the maze that is the healthcare industry. We touch on everything from the hottest trends all the way down to how to pick a winning stock!
Venture capitalists are pouring cash into U.S. biotechs at a rate set to replicate 2018’s record deal count, according to PitchBook and the National Venture Capital Association’s third-quarter Venture Monitor report. In the first three quarters alone, VCs struck 609 biopharma deals — the majority of which were Series A or B — and contributed $11.5 billion in investments. Compared to the stretch between 2005 and 2011, VC investments more than tripled to strike $2.3 billion between 2012 and 2018. What Does The VC Landscape Look Like?
Here is a look at ETFs that currently offer attractive short selling opportunities. The ETFs included in this list are rated as sell candidates for two reasons. First, each of these funds is deemed to be in a downtrend based on the fact that its 50-day moving average is below its 200-day moving average, which are popular indicators for gauging long-term and medium-term trends, respectively. Second, each of these ETFs is also trading above its 20-day moving average, thereby offering a near-term 'sell on the pop' opportunity given the longer-term downtrend at hand. Note that this prospects list also features a liquidity screen by excluding ETFs with average trading volumes below the one million shares mark. As always, investors of all experience levels are advised to use stop-loss orders and practice disciplined profit-taking techniques.

Let's face it: The stock market is infuriating. Valuations are high, global growth is slow, and President Donald Trump's trade war with China has brought elevated volatility to stocks. Meanwhile, bonds, the only sensible alternative, are at near-record high prices and thus offer puny yields.What's an investor to do? One partial remedy is to increase your investment in health care stocks.Health care, which comprises more than 15% of Standard & Poor's 500-stock index, is the only broad market sector that can hold its own in both bull and bear markets. Although, no question, its best performance relative to the overall stock market comes during selloffs. In 2018, for instance, while the S&P; 500 retreated by 4.6% on a total-return basis (price plus dividends), the health care sector gained 5.6%.Which would you rather have: a shiny new BMW or your health? To ask the question is to answer it. If you're really sick, you'll do whatever it takes to recover, no matter the cost. You'll skip the new car, if necessary. Demand for health care is virtually inelastic. What's more, as baby boomers age, they're requiring more medical care. Simultaneously, breakthrough advances in the treatments of diseases - often expensive treatment - continue at a rapid clip.Below are my six best health care funds, in no particular order.

Hexo (NYSE:HEXO) stock is down 20% year-to-date. This is while the S&P 500 is up more than 10% and the SPDR S&P Biotech ETF (NYSEARCA:XBI) is flat. So clearly, investors have shied away from buying HEXO stock specifically.Source: Shutterstock This is not necessarily alarming because investors are already nervous from extraneous factors. Wall Street has good reason to be hesitant to buy even proven stocks right now with so much uncertainty is looming. So they are not rushing into risky ones either.During such uncertain times, stocks like HEXO, which are relatively frothy don't get bid up. If investors are nervous they usually prefer buying strong fundamentals not hopium. Since it sells at 270 time its sales, the Hexo stock price has a lot of forward potential baked into it -- even down here.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Trading HEXO StockSo, under such uncertain conditions, I would only trade HEXO from a tactical vantage point. And that's the opportunity we will study today.HEXO stock is down 50% since the end of April. Clearly the bears are in control of it, but there is hope for the bulls. Last week when it was under severe selling pressure, it held the July bottom. So as long as the HEXO bulls can maintain the higher-low trend, they will have an opportunity to regain control of the price action. This is also happening inside a pivotal zone and those are usually supportive.To do that, HEXO stock price needs to rise above $4.50. This is a moving target so I consider it more of a range rather than a hard line in the sand.If the buyers are able to do this then HEXO could run another $1 from there. This would almost be the halfback retracement of the whole correction from $8.20 per share. * 7 Deeply Discounted Energy Stocks to Buy Since I deem this opportunity as tactical, it also means that the trade should have tight stops. This would eliminate the temptation of turning a trade into an investment.However, if traders know the company and expect its fundamentals to eventually blossom then this same opportunity here would also be a good long-term entry point. But in either case and with so much uncertainty, it is best to do it in stages and not a full position all at one.There is a technical caution from the weekly chart. The HEXO stock price pattern is expanding and testing the lower ends of the range. If the trend line breaks then they could target $3 per share. While this is not the obvious scenario unfolding, it is one that exists.The bottom line is that Wall Street is on edge so they won't have a lot of appetite to buy iffy stocks. HEXO is one that would likely need the general market help to find footing and recover higher levels. If it does then I'd trail profits near $5.50 then again at $6.30 per share.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.
