Health care stocks still attractive: Traders

After President Barack Obama's speech about the flawed rollout of the Affordable Care Act, the health-care sector still appears attractive, Stephen Weiss of Short Hills Capital said Thursday.

"You still have to be in a group that continues to grow whether the economy's growing or not growing, so I like it," he said on CNBC's "Halftime Report."

Weiss, who holds positions in Tenet Healthcare, Community Health Systems and Gilead, said that he didn't find the president's comments about the breakdown of the government's health-care website surprising.
