3 Reasons to Invest in Healthcare during a Recession

Investing in healthcare during a recession is a good investment for several reasons. At Owls Nest Capital, we love some of the dividend aristocrats like Abbvie, Johnson & Johnson, Abbott, and Cardinal Health.

First, there is a huge opportunity for growth in the healthcare industry. According to [source], the US healthcare industry will grow from $3.6 trillion in 2015 to $5.6 trillion by 2025, which means that investors can benefit from this booming industry with little risk of losing their investment.

Second, healthcare is an important sector of any economy because it ensures that residents are healthy and well cared for. A healthy population is more productive and therefore contributes more to the economy as well as the overall well-being of society as a whole. In addition, if you're investing in stocks or bonds then you'll want to invest in companies that are publicly traded so that you can sell them at any time without having to worry about whether or not they're going bankrupt like privately held businesses often do when they fail due to bad management decisions or unforeseen circumstances such as natural disasters or economic downturns like recessions where people lose jobs which causes them not being able to buy products which cause companies who sell products (such as restaurants) which cause restaurants to go out of business.

Third, health care is one of the few industries that actually grows during recessions. People will always need to see doctors and get prescriptions filled, especially if they're unemployed or underemployed. You can't just stop going to the doctor when you lose your job!
