several we remain interested in opportunities in the healthcare sector this being a lot of speculation given to the sector's out the form for the last 2-3 years as to whether evaluations, extended we don't feel that now obviously their individual names within the sex is that may have become expensive our job is to obviously Analyze This actors a hole on the line Industries in individual companies but we feel the still tremendous opportunity in the sector the whole why would that be put quite simply on the demand-and-supply conditions in the industry remain in the sector remain really favorable let me explain what I mean by that on the supply-side companies have been inventing Evan you medical drugs by technology therapies a medical devices but on the demand side what's going on is in the u.s. sending most most western economies we have an aging population of why is iron important because unfortunately the something we can all be sure all this we age is it we will get sicker we will get more on healthy so if you think about that powerful combination this more than mine for healthcare from the Asian population just as the industry the sector is bringing wine from you Terra Vista Market so what valuations extended as a result of that know if you look at the long-term trends valuations are above medium but I'm slightly suck so as a group valuations a good and the most exciting opportunity remains of individual company levels
