5:09 am
lea: cristis chief investment officer in capitol management. good morning to you. >> good morning, cheryl, good morning, lee. >> we saw big bump yesterday, what is your expectation? >> there's two reasons why they've moved. the first one more boring fundamentally, they haven't done very much in biotech is certainly part of it and now all of a sudden they were cheap and they have to move. the biggest thing, is really the government, never underestimate the power of government, make a business and break a business and the new health care at least from what i can look at it, as we see it now is that previously affordable care act traded off, you know, 15 to 20 million people getting on health care and then 50 million people having a health care expenses go up 2 to 3 times and now all of a sudden there's a shift back and we will see more spending particularly on the health care sector, pharmaceuticals, whatever.

5:11 am
course to tax reform if they don't get health care pass. so you're gambling a little bit with that but they were in a depressed level anyway. cheryl: i don't think we are going to get upset if we get tax reform sooner than later. really quick, overall from an investor perspective, which plan do you like better, the house plan or the senate plan? >> i like the senate plan, it's a little bit more moderate and despite some of the opposition statements, i don't think it really hurts a lot of people, i guess a comfortable plan for most americans. cheryl: we are going to be following it. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you. lea: senate republican plan is all for all to see, compare that to nancy pelosi's infamous comment about obamacare back in 2010. remember this? >> we have the pass bill so that you can find out what is in it. lea: we will take a look at
