As a result, you will have plenty of profit .
But you don't have to try to guess which companies will be the big winners. I am not interested in which company will benefit the most from health care legislation. Or which company will come up with the best artificial joints. Or even which company will develop the best .
Instead, I am looking at the health care field as a whole.
Before we get into specifics, let's look at why the baby boomers are going to have such a huge influence on health care in this country.
Maxine Peters is a perfect example of what I'm talking about.
A few years ago, she had a bad fall. After four hospital confinements, she reconsidered the wisdom of living by herself. Maxine was dealing with bad knees, back pain, and declining . So she decided it might be best to move into a facility where she could get round-the-clock attention, as well as help with day-to-day tasks.
Maxine is far from alone. Roughly 70% of Americans over the age of 65 will require long-term care of some sort. And over 40% will need nursing home care for some period of time.
With the first baby boomers turning 65 this year, it's easy to see why the demand for long-term care will continue to grow. The number of elderly Americans will jump from 35 million today to over 75 million by 2030.
"We're talking 75 million people classified as baby boomers [who will] consume health-care services much more than their ," said Dr. Bruce Koeppen, founding dean of Quinnipiac University of Medicine. It's the 'Me Generation.' By their very nature, they will consume more health services."
This includes more visits to the doctor. More hospitalizations. An increased number of heart surgeries. Knee replacements. Hip replacements. The list goes on and on.
The growth of the health care sector means investors who know can make big profits for many years.
And I have found one investment that I believe offers you an outstanding . Steady growth as more and more baby boomers flood the health care system, and steady income as this investment pays you quarterly dividends like clockwork.
Keep in mind, too, that the health care sector is virtually recession proof. No matter what the stock market does, demand for medical services will continue to climb.
Add it all up and I believe this investment could hand you 10%+ gains and a 5%+ dividend every year going forward...
