New York City, New York -- (May 13, 2013)

President Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ACA), which was upheld by the Supreme Court last year, is expected to have a significant impact on the healthcare sector. While the ACA is likely to result in higher costs for the healthcare sector in the near-term, an increase in the number of insured individuals will ultimately benefit the sector. Another major development in the healthcare sector, that is having an impact on drug manufacturers and biotechnology companies, is the expiration of patents on several blockbuster drugs. This has resulted in increasing competition from generic drug makers. On Friday, the healthcare sector ended sharply higher, tracking gains in the broad market. Among the major movers in the sector were Hospira Inc. (NYSE: HSP), Alkermes Plc (NASDAQ: ALKS), Celsion Corporation (NASDAQ: CLSN), Theravance Inc. (NASDAQ: THRX), and Chelsea Therapeutics International Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHTP).
