    With the SCOTUS upholding Obamacare's mandate to buy insurance, many people are wondering what role healthcare-related stocks should play in their investment portfolio.

    I recommend everyone put a moratorium on all healthcare stocks. It's just too early in the game to care right now.

    Nothing in the bill takes effect until 2014. And for all we know, Republicans could win the House and Senate in November and have the bill repealed on their 1st day in session.

    It's not worth the risk. Wait until 2014.

    Anyone disagree?

    It would be better to do homework on which companies are positioned to take advantage of it. Each state has to set up pools of health care companies

    The problem with that is, those pools don't get set up until 2014. We don't even know if their gonna get the chance to set up the exchanges. The law may be repeal long before that.

    With new pools of health care companies being needed, how do we start them?

    Surely there will be support businesses that spring up as well. Which do we start?

    Maybe we can get in this way ... starting now ... and hoping it's not repealed.

    Brother Knowledge Seed ... we can operate in anticipation of what might happen tomorrow, but it would behoove us to take advantage of opportunities presented today. 2014 is right around the corner, and if a Sister or Brother could start a business, do the planning, etc., time is of the essence. It's a risk, sure, but most things are. Implementing the right steps, i'd imagine one could position themselves quite nicely, especially if it's not repealed. Even if it is repealed, that could be planned for as well.

    Either way ... repealed or not ... one would have to start now.

    I know you are talking about health care stocks, but i'm going off what Kemetstry said about businesses.

    Love You!

    There is nothing wrong with being patient. Most of Obamacare will stay. It is the mandate that is the controversial issue. Thus it is good to research and wait

    The mandate was the issue in court. Republicans have made it clear that they're gonna repeal the whole thing, if they win the House and Senate

    Peace Knowledge Seed,

    But.. isn't this where the value of speculation comes in? Shouldn't we be learning everything their is to know about they healthcare sector and be making some educated guesses about where to put our money? If I have 1000 dollars to invest, I don't necessarily have to put it all in one place do I? If I gave you 1000 dollars what 3 places would you put it?
