Molina Healthcare, McKesson and Humana are part of the Zacks Investment Ideas article.
Healthcare stocks generally carry a defensive nature, helping to shield investors from the market's volatility. Demand for the services these companies provide won't be going anywhere anytime soon.
The healthcare industry is largely seen as recession proof, but that is painting the sector with too broad a brush. There are certainly stocks in the industry, though, that are thriving, including drug and medical supply giant McKesson (NYSE: MCK) and healthcare insurer UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH). McKesson is up more than 37% so far this year while UnitedHealth is up just a little over 1%.
