NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Health-care stocks, especially drug shares, performed downright sickly in 2010. That could change this year, as some fund managers say overlooked and undervalued companies may finally provide healthy returns.The Healthcare SPDR ETF (XLV) rose barely 1% in 2010, compared with a 13% jump in the S&P 500 Index. The largest holdings of the Healthcare SPDR are Johnson & Johnson (JNJ - Get Report) (13.5%), Pfizer (PFE - Get Report) (11.5%) and Merck (MRK - Get Report) (9%). They all finished in the red last year, helping to make health care the worst-performing sector in the S&P 500.
