Top 5 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now

If you bought this time last year,Centurylink Inc.(NYSE:CTL)andPattern Energy Group Inc.(NASDAQ:PEGI)haven’t exactly been great investments, with share prices down 33% and 19%, respectively, while theS&P 500(SNPINDEX:^GSPC)has gained 15%. Even when we factor in dividends, they lost investors money while the market delivered more than 17% in total returns.

And while it’s important to remember that stocks can be volatile over the short term, it’s not fun watching your stocks lose value while the market goes up so much. But sometimes where the market sees weakness, there’s actually opportunity. And I think that’s the case with both of these stocks today.

Betting against the market can be risky, but there’s often greater reward. Image source: Getty Images.
