Dividends4Life: Four Dividend-Paying Health Care Investments to Buy for a Pandemic Recovery

The four dividend-paying health care investments to buy offer strong potential to profit from the ongoing economic reopening that will favor providers who should be lifted by improving trends as COVID-19 wanes and by rising utilization volumes compared to pandemic-plagued 2020. The financial performance of hospital chains should show gains starting in March 2021 amid cost controls and patients becoming increasingly comfortable seeking care for non-urgent conditions they may have delayed during the pandemic before the expanded rollout of COVID-19 vaccines.

For hospital chains such as HCA (HCA), first-quarter 2021 volumes may underwhelm as COVID volumes slow, core volumes climb modestly and the impact of severe storms in February is measured. UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH), a Minnetonka, Minnesota-based provider of health care products and insurance services that offers a 1.4% current dividend yield, should hit its stride again by third-quarter 2021. A good fund to consider buying is Van Eck Vectors Pharmaceutical (PPH), which Carlson described as a pure play on the pharmaceutical sector. Another good health care ETF to consider purchasing is SPDR Select Health Care (XLV), offering a current dividend yield of 1.5%.
