05:12 EDTUNH, CNC, WLP, HCA, AETBarron's revisits the Obamacare stocks that will be winners and losers
President Obama's re-election should help hospitals and insurers who can benefit from health-care reform. However, medical-device makers and big insurers may struggle under his "Obamacare", Barron's contends. Post election, shares of HCA (HCA) and Centene (CNC) rose amid a growing belief that profits will soar along with membership in Medicaid programs. Share prices should keep climbing over the next year. Big health insurers like Aetna (AET), WellPoint (WLP) and UnitedHealth Group (UNH) will face tough new rules governing how they do business that could squeeze future profits. Yet Obama's victory doesn't clear away all the clouds hanging over the health-care sector. To help defray the cost of giving all Americans health benefits, medical-device makers will have to start paying excise taxes next year, while drug makers must give bigger price rebates to Medicaid and Medicare patients. Barron's suggests that investors with a longer-term investment horizon may want to cast a wider net beyond hospitals and insurers to include drug makers and other companies with products or services that can bring down spiraling health-care costs.
