Deep Dive: Want to ride the health-care stock wave? Here are 19 companies growing sales rapidly

Stock prices have soared so far this year, following a dismal fourth quarter. But the best sector of 2018 — health care — has shown only a modest gain in 2019. With an aging population and so much government money pouring into the industry, it is only reasonable to try to ride the long-term wave.

We have looked at the numbers to highlight the fastest sales growers in the sector and the stocks analysts predict will perform the best over the next 12 months.

Through Friday, March 8, the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.27% was up 9.1% for 2019, including reinvested dividends, following a fourth-quarter decline of 11.8% and a drop of 5.6% for all of 2018.
