Action to Take: The Supreme Court's ruling doesn't mark the beginning or end of our nation's ongoing health-care crisis, but is simply another mile marker along the way. In the next five or 10 years, look for further discussions about how to improve or alter the delivery of health care as it becomes increasingly apparent that cost pressures have not fully gone away.

But with these challenges come opportunities to profit. Whether it's a biotech company developing the next life-saving cancer treatment, or a software company that will help hospitals and doctors' offices transition to electronic medical records, the health-care sector is one well worth watching -- and one that can be very lucrative for smart investors who make the right moves.
