Vance, CEO of Hansen Medical Inc., tells The Life Sciences Report about disruptive advances in interventional radiology and Hansen's own revolutionary robotic catheters.

Health Care…Is There a Better Way? / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Rodney_Johnson

It’s the end of October, which means Halloween is fast approaching. Then, once the calendar flips to November, we jump headlong into the holiday season.

It’s a time of celebration, travel, and gift-giving, but, in recent years, something else was added to the mix, and it fills people with dread.

It’s not more visits from in-laws (although, luckily, mine are fabulous!). It’s open enrollment for health insurance.

Transformational Technology - The “Age” Age / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

As I mentioned in last week’s letter, I traveled to San Francisco last Monday with my friend Patrick Cox, who writes our Transformational Technology Alert newsletter. We had dinner with Dr. Mike West of Biotime and then spent the next morning at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging. Pat and I decided we would jointly report on what we learned. He has already written his part, which was published last week. I am going to reproduce portions of that letter, which highlight the conversation with Brian Kennedy and his team at the Buck Institute, and then add my own thoughts about our conversation with Mike West the previous night.

Unhealthy, Not Wealthy, and Far from Wise, The Changing Healthcare World / Companies / Healthcare Sector

“Man needs difficulties. They are necessary for health.” – Carl Jung

Decisions, decisions. Many Americans will have to make a big one in the next 60 days or so. How you decide will affect both your health and your wallet. Hospital management and doctors are seeing significant differences in the trends of patient care and are moving to adapt. Some of the changes they implement are going to create significant economic impacts on households and local communities.

What the Supreme Court Did for Healthcare Stocks / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Michael E. Lewitt writes: U.S. markets were relatively quiet last week with the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:.DJI) dropping 0.4% to 17,946.68, the S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) also slipping 0.4% to 2101.49 and the NASDAQ Composite (INDEXNASDAQ:.IXIC) shedding 0.7% to 5080.51.

The real action was in China, where the Shanghai Composite Index collapsed by 7.4% on Friday and neared a 20% drop which would constitute bear market territory. Chinese stocks saw their biggest two-week plunge since December 1996.

Get Your Investing Tactics Ready to Profit from This Supreme Healthcare Event / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: Love it or hate it, the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, is one of the biggest single wealth creation opportunities of the next 50 years. But you can’t just pile in like many investors have. That’s a recipe for disaster.

The biggest profits will belong – like they always do – to those who make a “smart entry.”

Fortunately, this isn’t difficult. The entire sector is tailor-made for one of our favorite Total Wealth Tactics – the lowball order.

Healthcare Tops as 4Q14 Earnings Struggle / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: DailyGainsLetter

George Leong writes: It’s that time again; another quarter has come to an end. The fourth-quarter earnings season numbers will officially start flooding in for the S&P 500 on Monday, with Alcoa Inc. (NYSE/AA) the first to report. However, the stock market is currently in a funk, beginning 2015 with weakening oil prices and continued concerns over the global economy. The problem: as the stock market searches for a reason to buy, several segments are suffering from the selling pressure. There is, however, one segment expected to look up heading into 1Q15 and that’s the healthcare sector. But more on that potential investment opportunity in a moment…

I know most folks aren't that fortunate. That's why dieting and exercise in the United States is a $60.5 billion industry.

Healthcare Stocks to Benefit from Growing Obesity Concerns / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: DailyGainsLetter

George Leong writes: It’s headline news: America is getting bigger around the waistline and that means that there’s a greater potential for higher healthcare issues down the road—which isn’t a good sign for a healthcare system that is already struggling. (Maybe the government should offer monetary incentives, such as tax credits, for those who join gyms or pursue other healthy alternatives.)

Even though America is struggling with obesity, Americans realize the issues and consequencesthat go along with obesity and an unhealthy lifestyle.

During the game, he headed the ball; it was a simple maneuver regularly seen throughout any match. The next day Minghao (a pseudonym) woke up stiff, sore, and with a severe aching in his neck.

All Crazy Now – Mental Healthcare In The UK / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Andrew_McKillop

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Returning to the UK, more exactly Scotland after many years in France I could call this a move from TSD Land to PTSD Land and the facts and figures back that claim. France like all other aging or mature democracies such as the UK is struggling with the unstoppable growth of Altzheimer's disease victims, with the curve suggesting the incidence of this disease will be claiming 750 000 new victims per year by the 2020s. Also having a fast-growing (by EU standards) population and a growing number of childhood cancer victims, as well as adult victims, the French national health spending implications are somber, but what happens to surviving victims of Altzheimer's disease, the treatement of which is improving and extending life expectancy of victims? In Britain, a UK Medical Research Council report of late October provides some of the answers.

Obamacare Is Not a Revolution, It Is Mere Evolution / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: MISES

Roger McKinney writes: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act focused the attention of Americans on government regulation as few issues have. However, they should have paid attention decades earlier because states have been eating away like termites at freedom in the healthcare insurance market for decades. The PPACA adds little to existing state regulations. States began dictating to insurance companies what to cover, whom to cover, when to cover them and how much they could charge in the 1950s. Massachusetts, home of Romneycare, the template for Obamacare, enacted the first state mandate in 1956 requiring insurers to cover mentally and physically handicapped children.[1]

Home Healthcare Cuts Threaten 500,000 Jobs and Female-Owned Businesses / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: DeviantInvestor

By Dennis Miller

That title wouldn’t make for much of a campaign slogan, and yet, it’s the natural outcome of one particular politician’s promise. As the editor of a retirement-focused newsletter, most of the notes I receive about the Affordable Health Care Act, or Obamacare, are first-person accounts of how a reader’s change in coverage or cost is affecting his finances. These (mostly sad) stories prompted several discussions with Andy Mangione, vice president of government relations of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC). Andy serves as the lead legislative and government contact for AMAC in Washington, DC. He’s also responsible for national grassroots outreach and developing strategic partnerships.

A Clear Way to Profit from a Graying Population / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Money_Morning

Ernie Tremblay writes: The Baby Boom generation, which includes everyone born from 1946 through 1964, is now entering retirement age (65) at a rate of 10,000 per day. That demographic wave is so big that in 2010, the U.S. Administration on Aging (AoA) predicted the elderly population in this country would double to about 71 million by 2030.

That presents a huge opportunity for bioscience investors. Here's why.

The New Normal of Healthcare Spending / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

A rather interesting shockwave came across the newsfeeds this week. I was actually doing a TV interview when the host announced that GDP was down 2.9% for the first quarter. There was not much else I could do but note that that was a really bad, ugly, terrible, not very good number. But I had no real basis, without any facts in front of me, by which to understand why the revision was so extreme. Sure, we were all expecting a pretty large revision, but what we got was the worst decline in five years and the largest downward revision since recordkeeping began. Later, a quick perusal of the data on the BLS website revealed the culprits: exports and healthcare spending.
