On CAPS, 97% of the 67 members who have rated iShares S&P Global Healthcare believe the ETF will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star jaschajabes, who is ranked in the top 10% of our community, and GKuhfeldt.

Having gotten on board a few years ago, jaschajabes succinctly summed up the opportunity: "[L]ife expectancy rises so [health care costs] do as well. I see profits for the long haul here."

iShares S&P Global Healthcare, in particular, sports an annual turnover ratio of just 6%. That's lower than that of other health ETFs like iShares Nasdaq Biotech (13%) and Vanguard Health Care (9%).

CAPS member GKuhfeldt expands on the outperform argument:

The tail end of the Baby Boomers will be reaching retirement in the next 10-15 years. That combined with the low price as a result of this economy means over the long term this ETF can only go up. People will always need health care. Additionally, this is a GLOBAL Healthcare ETF. That gives it a more diverse base to provide for a more defensive long position.
