    • With the S&P 500 returning to more or less flat on the year, Bespoke digs down into sector performance and finds most of them nicely in the green, including the roughed-up energy group (NYSEARCA:XLE) with a 5.9% gain.
    • Leading on the upside, though, are the telecoms (NYSEARCA:XTL), ahead 14.4%, and utilities (NYSEARCA:XLU), up 13.3%. Consumer Staples (NYSEARCA:XLP), Materials (NYSEARCA:XLB), and Industrials (NYSEARCA:XLI) are all up between 3.7% and 4.5%, while Consumer Discretionary (NYSEARCA:XLY) is flat.
    • Holding the S&P 500 back, then, is healthcare (NYSEARCA:XLV), with an 8.2% decline, and financials (NYSEARCA:XLF), down 5.5%. Within, healthcare, the biotechs (NASDAQ:IBB) have plunged 27%.

    • The average price of branded prescription drugs in the U.S. has doubled in the past five years, a finding that threatens to fuel the political backlash against high prices.
    • Express Scripts (NASDAQ:ESRX), the country's largest pharmacy group, said the average wholesale price of branded medicines, which are protected by patents, rose 16% last year and was up a total of 98% since 2011.
    • High drug costs have become a persistent theme in the current U.S. election campaigns, with both the Democratic and Republican frontrunners, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, pledging to crack down on elevated prices.

    • U.S. equity ETFs took in more cash in October ($10B) than the rest of the year combined (Jan-Sept $6B), according to Bloomberg. The averages in October also happened to have their best month in four years. Coincidence?
    • Corporate bond ETFs (LQD) brought in $8.3B - the most money ever in one month. Most of that was in the particularly beaten-up high-yield sector (HYG, JNK), which brought in $5.6B - also a record. Up until last month, junk ETFs had seen net outflows year-to-date.
    • Emerging markets ETFs broke a 12-month string of outflows, bringing in $1.6B. Noteworthy are $900M of inflows for popular buy-and-hold ETFs like IEMG, along with $700M of inflows for a hot-money favorite like EEM.
    • Previously a golden boy sector for inflows this year, health care (NYSEARCA:XLV) saw $1.2B of cash exit in October, sparked by the Hillary Clinton-related biotech selloff.
    • After taking in $4.9B YTD through September, German ETFs EWG and HEWG saw $600M in outflows in October despite the market's rally. Both funds have about 15% exposure to auto manufacturers (like Volkswagen).

    • It's been a "remarkable turn" in relative performance, says Deutsche Bank's David Bianco, noting health care was about 1K basis points ahead of the S&P 500 as recently as mid-August, but both are now about flat and neck-and-neck year-to-date.
      "We find this reversal unwarranted and think health care could surge into year-end," says Bianco, and if the move doesn't come in 2015, it'll surely happen next year. As for valuation, health care is selling for 14.7x 2016E EPS vs. the S&P 500 at 16x - this even as health care's expected 6% sales growth should easily trump that of nominal GDP and the S&P 500. Biano sees 6-9% EPS growth, also better than the S&P.
    • Focus on the big picture, says Bianco: "We believe growth in health care products will stay strong owing to an aging population and increasing efforts to treat conditions with drugs and maximize the productivity of scarce healthcare labor with as many tools and conveniences as conceivable." He likes S&P 500 biotech, pharma, devices, equipment, supplies, tech, and tools, but is cautious on managed care and other healthcare services and facilities.
