April 10th we looked for a bounce in Healthcare Providers and were early, so several of our trades were quickly stopped out and others didn’t trigger at all. Medical Devices were the last subsector standing and once they were hit, we thought that Healthcare was likely close to a short-term bottom.
Given the extreme oversold readings we were seeing in our work (like percentage of XLV components hitting oversold conditions last week) and the subsequent bounce to start this week, I want to outline five names showing relative strength in the space that could benefit from continued mean-reversion in the sector.
More importantly, they offer well-defined risk and a reward/risk that’s skewed in our favor.
