The healthcare industry is undergoing a major transformation as they adapt to
President Obama's Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA will result in the
biggest overhaul of the healthcare industry in decades. While the reform will
be beneficial to the healthcare industry in the long-term, it will result in
higher costs for the industry in the short-term. On Friday, the healthcare
sector rose sharply, tracking gains in the broad market, which rebounded after
ending lower for two consecutive trading sessions. Among the major movers were
